how much did the set up cost you? I either want a 3 or 4 inch lift.

Just about have everything buttoned up. I got the parts friday and got everything done between yesterday evening and today. Drives like it did before the lift but slightly smoother. I am getting an alignment tomorrow. I got it to about 65mph nothing unusual smooth no vibes but it does seem like it is a little squirrelly at higher speeds I am hoping the alignment fixs that. I will get pictures up tomorrow after I finish dying the pasitcs, just have the front bumper left.

I just ordered an addco rear sway bar after seeing the wanna be sway bar during lift install

so I have been putting off getting an alignment due to the fact that this thing rides and drives awesome no death wobble, not even a hint at any speed over the bumpiest roads. It doesn't pull at all and it just glides down the road with absolutely no vibrations what so ever. So I am debating even getting an alignment done.

the addco rear sway bar made a huge difference. I am thinking I need gears or I need to start working on my harness for the ls swap it seems very under powered going down the highway, more than it did stock.

jeep is awesome to drive. My next step to make night driving better is to install 4 mini h1 projectors. I almost have the parts needed I just have to buff the oem headlights and see if they are worth saving.

bought some new headlights the oem ones were expired. Just need bulbs and ballasts for the retrofit. So far I have to say this is one of the best vehicle builds for the money, so far only about 5k into the whole thing including purchase and it's fun to drive.

No pictures right now but I removed the ashtray and put in the cubby hole with the heated seat switches so I can finally hook up the heated leather seats. Second gear is starting to slip and new tires are coming up quickly. Working on fiberglass spare tire enclosure at the moment.
