alright... figured i would keep the build thread going for what im working on right now

so far my to do list includes the following

4.5" Lift
-Rubicon Express 4.5" Springs
-Rubicon Express Monotube Shocks
-Rubicon Express Extended Rear End Links
-JKS Adjustable Rear Track Bar
-JKS Quicker Disconnects
-Extended Braided Stainless Steel Brake Lines

This will not all be done before christmas but im hoping to have at least the Lift done by then. The Lift is #1 on my list.

Very good - I dropped 150 on my coils and a c-note for my rear trackbar. Jump on those if he gets back to you

URLs got fubared. Try again Matt.

Although, 75 for a true JKS trackbar is a good deal. They hold their value well.

Definitely look close. JKS is much beefier than other brands. Feel free to come by if you're up north in the evenings and you can take a look at mine for reference. When I was helping BSlash on his lift, we found out the hard way that he was screwed on his front bar. Most definitely not a JKS.
