I'm sure the Long arms will happen in the rear sooner than later.

I think changing out the fronts to a long arm kit will be better for me. And it saves time since i have adjustables in the rear

Nice build thread man. I think I might just do what you did with you upper control arms to my lower's. That would save me some cash for sure.

Oh and I must say, that bumper you built for zte87 is AWESOME!!!!

I would make you build me one if you lived closer. Yes, I would force you.

Thanks Man, I have minimum time to always devote to projects. But when they are done they look great. Shows what some patience and thinking will get done.

I will be moving back to iowa soon, maybe a few bumpers will be in your future....

My upper control arms seem to be holding up pretty well, I would try it with the lowers too. It may make them hold up pretty well to some larger tires. As usual i recommend that you cary at least one lower for front and rear if using stock arms and some pretty good wheeling.

Hey guys, I know i don't update this enough, but this stuff is pretty simple.

I broke the steering box off. I ended up replacing it w/ another zj one. The problem came from full lock to lock snow driving we were doing that day.
Here is the snow:



I still would break the 760x shafts(joints):


So i jumped to these:

compared to a 297shaft:



These new shafts are superior cromo w/lifetime warrenty
