Don't know. I just did some actual research to see how much an evo would cost me. The cheapest insurance I've found so far is $350 and the cheapest monthly payment would be $450 plus however much gas I use. That's way to much to drive a car around.

. . . . Not to mention the constant fear of having it get messed with, something you probably don't have nearly as much of with your 5.9. Who wants to mess with an 11 year old Jeep?

As promised here are the pictures of the TnT Truss, not the best quality pictures but you get the idea. The lower control arm mounts were missing so I'll have to figure that out later.

Dahhh! reading comprehension again. Disregard my post above.

You must have ordered new lower mounts for the axle & didn't get them?

No not the bushings, those come with the upper control arm mounts and are in that bag. The lower control arm mounts are one of the upgrades you can chose to order, I need them cause the waggy axle had leaf springs originally.

They don't have an option for swaybar tabs, if they did I probably would've got those too. I'll either get them from JKS or have KOR make me some.

Edit: just looked again and I guess they do have that option, oh well.
