Thanks man. I've heard the axle itself gives another 1/2 inch, just because the axle tubes are that much bigger. I still have to measure, but in its current state, sometimes it looks like the back sits a little higher anyways.

Total noob question, but whats the point of the steering brace? Does it just help tighten the steering?

Theres a good explanation here. Its basically just to prevent the bolts from the steering box becoming loose, or the ears breaking off from the added stress of larger tires.

Well I tested my battery, which I thought was bad (had the doors open for an hour or so while I was cleaning it yesterday), and out of 690 cca's it measured 544, and the tester was suggesting I replace it. Lucky for me, there was a duralast battery in the back of the store (advance) with all the other used batteries and its not even a year old, and its bigger. Out of 750 it measured 804. And guess what, I got it FOR FREE, since its not an autocraft, we can't sell it as a used battery.

I think I'm gonna buy these. I was gonna put my 8.8 in this week, but my jeep is driveable, so it can wait. I was gonna buy redzj's arb, but now that JCR is coming out with a diy bumper that will be a lot cheaper, I will probably go with that. I will never see another set of these for $500. ****, I'm not gonna be able to sleep tonight.
