question for guys running long arms
i was just wondering what you guys did with the stock lower control arm brackets on the frame end. do you cut them all the way off or just grind it until its close to flush with the frame?

It's kind of difficult to take them down flush unless you really work at it and cut off a little at a time. If you try to do it all at once (right between the rail and the bracket) your grinder/sawzall will want to press up into the rail and cut it. Out of all the half-*** welded things on XJ's, those brackets are spot-welded in very well. The main concern is the inner edge of the brackets that stick out -- make sure your lower arms will clear them while under articulation.
