can't wait to see pics. My WJ is the same color as yours, and I'm looking at that lift.

Well I hit a snag today. This jeep is a salvage title. It looks like the passenger lower control arm bracket has a wallowed out hole.... When it got hit it pushed the bolt into the side of the bracket tearing a nice little hole in it. Ill have pictures of it in the morning. My plan is to weld a washer into place, and order long arms and cut these stupid things off. :/ If anyone is selling WJ long arms let me know. DEFINITELY a buyer.

The IRO 6.5 doesnt even use the stock lower CA locations. ;)

SplitNail 08-15-2010 12:58 PM

Yea, that's what I am thinking about getting -2.5 inches. That's really high. This is my DD so I'm trying to stay safe as possible. I'm hoping to to have some pictures up tonight of everything!!

good idea with the long arms.

CBatZJ 08-15-2010 03:06 PM

about time you started a build thread! Has this control arm thing occured since we talked?

SplitNail 08-15-2010 04:00 PM

No I got it fixed. The Control arm bracket is still bent. I need long arms :(.... wait :)

DerangedPony 08-15-2010 05:17 PM

May sound like a stupid question but, how tall is that garage door in the last pic and does it fit after the lift?

SplitNail 08-15-2010 05:45 PM

HAHA My jeep is on an incline. Making it looking like its bigger but it will fit. BARELY. ha

The time now is 10:04 PM.
