if you plan on wheeling it you will need to replace the track bar brackets and the OEM trackbars with longer or better yet adjustable track bars. when i started off this is the kit i went with knowing that i would eventually need to replace the track bars i went with this kit anyways because its still a good deal. with not enough money at first i went ahead and used the relocation brackets and hated them. the front one would slide around when cornering on the street and it would pop like crazy when wheeling but the rear was the nightmare, i cant tell you how many times i broke bolts on that thing. i wound up drilling out the hole and using the biggest strongest bolt i could fit and that even broke.

yea what they said, and the shocks supplied with the kit aren't the greatest either.
