i went with the blue torch fab comp cuts...they were about $25 more than others but the light holes are already cut out and the notching for the tailgate so i figured it was worth it...save me some time

well its been a little bit since i updated everyone....i removed the 2" body lift, removed the 2.5" pro comp springs and replaced them with factory springs, installed the front and rear 538 gears, and made a rear driveshaft so i could move the jeep out of the garage and test the suspension. it is SO MUCH MORE STABLE now that i lowered it down!!

Looks good!
Are running a traction/antiwrap bar in the rear?
If so how about some pictures of it?
It is pretty cool you got that much more stretch using YJ springs.
Maybe I will ditch my XJ springs.

93 YJ SOA 2" springs front, XJ springs rear w/main leaf added, High pinon 9 inch rear detroit locker front Dana 44 ARB 4.56 Gears, 36 inch Irok tires too much to list.
