Nice thread! I'm tired just looking at the pictures

How's the handling and ride over parking lot speed bumps, leaf spring (not sure if you had one of those or not) vs. the leading link and coil spring MG kit front suspension?

I haven't put many miles on it yet but the ride is great so far. We had some leaf sprung 4wd vans at work many, many years ago and they were horrible, especially over speed bumps. I have never owned a leaf spring conversion or ridden in a Ujoint conversion, which are said to be pretty plush, but when I think of leaf spring front ends I think 'harsh'.
My opinion of MG's conversion is that so far it is similar to my Quigley SMB with the Agile RIP kit. This is no surprise since it's the same Fox shocks and Moog springs as that kit. The ride is firm and tight but it does bounce a bit like most 4wd trucks. I hope to get it offroad soon and will update.
