Question about your headlight, parking lights and turn signals... Are those all factory, or did you order those off of ebay? If off ebay which ones did you go with?

And for the front tow hooks, can you put those on with the front bumper on, or do you need to drop it?

Thanks

All are stock except corner lights I got them off eBay for like 12 bucks shipped. It looks clean bc someone hit my front end and i got new headlights. For the tow hooks you will need to take the bumper cover off but don't be scared it is mad easy if I figured it out then u can haha, the only problem u may run into is you radiator might not be sitting right I had to really force In the brackets and finagle the bolt through it was a pita but it's easy

Ha, my radiator wasn't sitting right either. Took at least an hour or so to fix that.

hey man, didn't you get a new pitman arm installed? did you get a drop pitman or just a stock replacement. I'm thinking about getting IRO DPA to match up to their double shear tb on my zj because my steering still isn't quite where i want it to be.

no you dont really need a pitman arm. a pitman arm is only used if you drop the trackbar, if you drop the trackbar three inches you will want your pitman arm to have a 3 inch drop as well from what i have learned. i just replaced the bushing where the pitman arm is

yeah....the IRO double shear bracket drops it like 3/4" or something like that...at 4.5" my steering angles are **** and i dont wanna shell out the money for rustys or something else right now. i think im going to give IRO DPA a whirl and see what happens.
