I also bought an IRO Double Shear Trackbar from bigbluezj94 yesterday. I need to order the bracket from IRO directly as well as rear post extensions and extended swaybar links. I felt like the IRO Double Shear would be a better trackbar than the Rough Country one that I have now.

Sounds good man.

On a side note, I absolutely hate the rear suspension on XJs. I am installing a lift on my friends XJ and dealing with the leaf packs and upper shock mounts is awful. I'm so glad I have coils and control arms at all four corners.

Yeah dude the rust is awful, and this was a XJ that had been in California all its life. And it was still rusted like crazy. Major PITA. But I finally finished it so all is well. On to more building of the ZJ..

Hah thanks man.

On another note, I may be picking up a used ARB bumper tomorrow. It needs to be repainted and there is a slight bit of damage to the very bottom of it. But the price is too good to let this offer go. Hopefully its still available.
