OH! And frame stiffeners.
Terry does make nice stuff, I'm running his Fwb2K bumper and R22X sliders. The nice part is I live 2 miles from him so no shipping

I don't know. Mind would probably be my 1-ton over knuckle steering once I got it set up right or my front locker. But Im sure gearing it will surpass them in a few weeks.

The long arms were mandatory but after the lift and all it entails (tires, rims, skids, weight)...... The WJ swap with 1.5" solid steering that netted me twin piston calipers, brembo rotors, OTA, OTK, and a flat as can be perfectly parallel Trackbar/Tierod/Draglink/swaybar setup with zero wobble or bumpsteer; well it made my jeep drive better then it did stock. Feels like a f350 HD with the crossover setup.

I'd say my favorites are the 44/9 swap. I got a lot packed into them but 4.88's and spools are nice(definitely not for everyone)

Oh and you would love a 4 link!

bad cell pic but double triangulated with 3/4 heim, 1.5/.188 dom uppers and 2"/.250 lowers with 3" ballistic joints. This was my mock up and i burned it in and it was amazing. Its getting some changes and stretch now that im rockin the small block!




edit: i didnt use those shocks just tacked on some beaten camaro shocks so the axle didnt stay on the ground when i put it on the lift to burn the tabs in lol.

Added vinyl decals on my jeep to give it a sporty look and make it unique. I found it very cheap indeed.
