i also found out that i need a new cam bolt on the passenger side. the previous owner torqued the piss out of it and screwed up the threads. we had to grind of a small amount to get the bolt to fit in the new sleeve. also i found out that the cam bolt is a dealer item only and is $27 a piece

At least the pin bar eliminators show up well Are you going to pick up the cam bolt this week? Let me know if you want to install it Saturday. If so, I'll get my @ss out of bed earlier. I think the temps are supposed to plummet into the mid 90's by early Saturday morning so I'll have the cocoa going

the other night on my way to work the motorcycle cop pulled up next to me at a set of lights and asked how much i lifted my jeep and said that it looks real good. and then i got a wave from a guy in a mustang and i had to get some gas and that guy with the mustang was on the pump next to me and we started talking about jeeps and said my jeep looked awesome and that he had one just like lifted 3.5.

if anybody wants to buy the tuff country control arms all they need is a paint job and new bushings. they are good for 3.5 inches of lift
