Hey bud I've got another question.

I just posted a thread about this track bar relocation bracket from Summit and everyone started flaming saying "do it right or don't do it at all" and that it will break the factory welds.

What do you think about all this?

idk man so far i havent had any problems with it. it runs great drives straight. everyone has their opinions i guess. there will be more force on the axle but not enough to break the welds in my opinion. and gettin a relocate bracket is a heck of a lot better than just drilling a new hole for the trackbar. granted adj track bar is the best option but also the most expensive. the guys at the local 4x4 shop that i ordered it from said i shouldnt have a problem with it. the one you posted in your thread is the exact one i bought and so far i'm happy with it. IMO its all what you feel comfortable with doing.

ATTENTION all JF members. if you consider ordering anything from RUK industries you might wanna reconsider it. On jan 18 i placed an order for a rear track bar relocation bracket( i dont wanna hear anything about get an adj trac bar or do it right thats not the point of this) after my order was lost by the post office RUK tried to send me a new one. well i FINALLY got it today in the mail, or so i thought. i opened it up to find they sent me the bracket for the front which is not the one i ordered. i ordered the one for the rear. now just from my opinion RUK hasnt been the best company i've ever dealt with. but i do want to praise shaun mcckay because he did his best to stay on top of this matter. possibly the best customer service i've ever dealt with but all said and done i'll never order from them again. hopefully they'll be sending me the correct bracket sometime soon.

You should paint those wheels wither the factory silver color to clean them up, or black, but NOT flat black. lol

lmao i was totally thinking i wanted flat black. mainly cuz i've seen them glossed black and just didnt like it. maybe a gunmetal? i've been considering painting them for a while now just havent had the spare time maybe over spring break.....

and as for the tint, i used rustoleum spray can lens tinting. you can get it at autozone for like $10. it says dont do more than 3 coats. but it was hard to do 3 good coats cuz it was hard to notice at first and get an even coat. i kinda did all 3 at once. turned out really well tho IMO

Lol, the reason I said not flat black, was because it looks very cheap. It LOOKS like it was spray painted.

i was talking about ceramic high heat black. used it on my old car all the time it finishes with a flat black look and is a pretty tough paint. it also looks pretty good IMO

lmao no the toggle switches were something i figured out while laying in my bed trying to fall asleep(somehow thats how i've gotten most of my ideas lol) lift was just kinda random thrown together. the tj bezel however i saw on jf in a thread and was like i have to do that haha. btw i just put it in no pics of it yet as it is currently downpouring here. yes i did the tj bezel mod in the pouring rain haha.
