Guess I'm dropping another 360 from IRO for adjustable uppers front and rear lol. Well, at least it will be a short arm done right. And there couldn't possibly be anything suspension wise to break because it's all new XD thanks for all the help from you experienced guys who lifted your jeeps way before me lol. As this is my first lifting of any vehicle (let alone a unibody jeep) this site has had lots of invaluable info that I have relied on a ton. Thanks!

Yeah I have learned a lot from this site, and I have so much more I want/need to get done, I'd be more than happy to take donations hahah

I figured I've spent so much money already, might as well spend a few extra hundred bucks and get it 100% right, I almost have everything new down there too lol

That's exactly it. What's a few hundred more to do it once, do it right. And while it's apart. Better than putting it back together just to take it apart again (not necessarily with control arms but with other things I've done along with the lift lol)

Aren't base long arms like 500 from IRO? and to get adjustables is more? So it's 250 more. And I'm only at 3.5 right now and will be til this is no longer my daily driver. So it's not really worth it. Plus if I did wanna go higher I would look into front and rear axle swaps prior to since you need xj long arms with a hp30 and the 8.8 is used primarily for strength to run larger tires. So I'm looking at a lot more invested to do long arms right then I'm doing short arms right for. Plus trails around here are mild. 3.5 short arm will be amazingly capable for me right now.
