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.

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!!

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