why? Are you guys speaking in code. Having a hard time following that last couple of posts. anyhow, Do you need sway bar links because your lift did not come with them. I have some JKS quicker discos for the ZJ that I am looking to sell might be a better option for you.

Id rather have the JKS Quicker, but money is tight and jeep has to be ready to roll by Feb 10th. I go on vacation. So I am going cheap on a few things right now.

Flat black, I didn't forget about you. I've been super busy with work. Today was the first time I got to even look at the jeep and that ended up being a mess.

Put my 3.5 inch lift on it.
Just when we were putting the control arms on thefront... It hit me. I forgot to order the trac bar. Lol.

Had to take the lift off and put all the stock **** back on.

Red Rubber piece I got from pep boys.

Towards the middle of the box youll see I attached the one hose.. I used an air hose fitting, Silicone.

Air Box is out of a ford win star. If you do it, use one out of a Ford F150. Bigger box.



I know, I am bad at write ups. If you need me to clear anything up for you just ask.
