Just so you know, your jeep is literally my jeeps idol. The biggest difference is going to be the fact that mine is pearl white and when I get it biult up, I'm gonna use different bumpers and flares, ha. If your ever browsing jgc general discussion, feel free to hit 01' pearl build thread, I could use your advice with aspects of my build. Even though it is virtually stock now because I'm running on a high school budget, it gonna be cool like yours one day.

These window scraper seals are the only thing I have purchased from them. The purchase went smooth, and the shipping time was not excessive.

Do you have any pictures of the frame side 3 link bracket? I'm going to build my own long arm and wanted to see what RK came up with.

Drivers Upper:







Drivers Lower:



Drivers Upper and Lower. The upper plate is bolted through the unibody to the plate on the inside of the unibody, where the upper arm bolts to. The lower section looks like it has abreak it in (there is a a cutaway) but it actually extends back and include the peice that spaces the crossmember down 3/4".

Thanks for all the pictures. That's perfect. I'll have to spend some more time under my rig scratching my head I think. How much bump stopping do you have? For some reason when I was doing my preliminary looksie it looked like getting good uptravel would be difficult.

I have 5 inches of bumpstop up front, and I still rub when I really flex out..even with all my trimming.

Did some mild mountain wheeling this weekend, and played a bit in the water at Bear Lake:

Love your WJ man! Yours is going to be the inspiration for mine... Just started my build thread earlier this month but I haven't gotten very far! Keep up the great work!
