Ok, so i put it in my sig but this is the deal, its a Jeep zj 4.0 1997 with 69,000 miles on it, its the IRO 3.5 inch lift kit, only difference is i opted to get all 4 new coils instead of doing the swap out (so as to make sure it sat strong and at a nice stance with little to no sagging) Its got the uniformed 15x8 crager soft 8 steelies, with 31x10.5x15 MTs, and up in the front ive got the Kevinsoffroad rad support with two hooks. The front bumper came off after a vandal kicked it in, so i painted the front frame with rinoliner, and have since stenciled in the teeth and sprayed using white enamel.

Those two pictures will give you an idea of what it looks like in a little bit of action. Havnt really had the opportunity to take it on anything really all that technical. So far so good though, only regrets i had was not ordering the kit with the JKS disconnects. I thought i could do without for a little bit of time, but boy was a wrong, disconnects would make this ride even sweeter then it already is. The first picture is pretty much maximum articulation on the rear with the swaybars. Capable, but limmited. Since working on the Deathwobble and the loose steering (nothing a good alignment job after the first 2000 miles and 1 month of the springs settling in, couldn't fix) I think im ready to get a new swaybar and the disconnects and take it a step further.

do you need the JKS disconnects all around or just on the front or rear?

I would suspect front and rear... that way each swaybar is disconnected and you are able to get maximum articulation. Correct me if I'm wrong.

You should keep the rear connected. Stock rear bar does not limit flex any noticable amount.

Nice ZJ's Kota04SXT and paddingtonbear. I'm looking into doing the same on my 96 limited. I'd like to go 32's though so I'll be trimming the fenders a bit.
