Found two sites so far www.jeep4x4center.com Morris 4x4 Center, and www.discountjeepparts.com has some really nice stuff. Thinking about buying every skid plate I can bolt up under it. Also was wondering if it has a 6.5 rough country lift can I still put long arms under it?

Hey Paul, welcome to JF.
At 6.5" of lift, long arms are definitely desireable.
If you've got a Photobucket account with any pics of the current suspension, throw some links up here.

Control arms don't look like they're extended far enough. Plus no adjustable uppers.

I found a RC X series upgrade on eBay for about 730$ includes shipping. I have the 6.5RC lift so I think I'm gona get the long arm upgrade when I get sum extra cash.

I think IROs long arms are a bit cheaper and most people like them. I have their adjustables and love them.

They just twist on one end with a jam nut to lock it in place once it's adjusted.
