No to clutter the thread- but with stiffners how do you plan to run all the fuel and brake lines on the driver side frame rail? Iv been wanting to add stiffners but have to figure out how to run those lines, do I simply add some bracket or clip to hold them?

The stiffeners don't go on the inside of the frame rail. Only the bottom and outside

Stiffeners (HD offroad, TnT, RuffStuff, etc) just cap the outside and bottom of the rail, nothing inside the rail is affected.

Edit: crockett beat me to it.

Anxious to get them here and installed. Ive had an XJ of some kind for the past 6 or 7 years, and never have rode in a single one that has had a proper shackle angle. Im so pumped to see what a difference this makes in ride quality and just overall performance of the leaf setup. That and Im looking forward to the adjustability, between the mounting hole choices and the lift shackle choices I have in my possession I should be able to get it dialed, all without my shackle hanging any lower than it does now.

X2. Ironically I originally got on their page today to order stiffeners, then I got a hard on for the no lift relo's and I decided Id go ahead and get those for now. HD seems like they are good to do business with, I know Ive heard great things about their products. Cant wait to give a firsthand opinion on the matter.

So far Im already impressed with HD. I ordered the relo's mid day yesterday... and they are scheduled to arrive tomorrow. Thats fantastic, especially considering shipping was free.

HD Engineering DOES seem to be the popular choice.
I posted up a thread/poll on another forum showing pretty much all I know that is available for shackle relocation brackets,
HD won hands down.

Blow is a copy of the post.... (sorry for the hijack.)

So I've been eyeballing this mod/upgrade for quite some time, doing my research, reading, reviewing, etc....
As far as I can tell, there's only about 5 options available at this point,
1.) DIY / Build Your Own (cost varies)





2.) Rough Country ($135.90 shipped)




3.) Liquid Iron Industries ($193.86 shipped)




4.) Iron Man 4x4 ($155 shipped)




5.) HD Engineering ($130 shipped)





If I have missed something, please let me know... but as far as I can tell, as of Nov 2013...this is about all that's out there.
Prices are approximate, and could/may change over time.
Those listed are about average.

5+" of lift, 33's, OTK, Armored, Lighted, Chipped, Winched & Locked up Front.

I aim to please.

And @NW99XJ that looks to be a pretty thorough list of the offerings out there. In addition HD's no lift setup is even a bit cheaper, unless I caught a cyber Monday deal I am unaware of. I paid an even $100 shipped. I was pleasantly surprised as I probably would have paid more for them than the lift versions for my intended use.

Vegas, that price is correct. I also paid $100, with free shipping, AND they were on my door step within days!
