Shocks and body lift just installed tonight, with a couple set backs that took longer than expected ( Broken Upper Shock Bolts) , but all in all a great night







The M.O.R.E bomb proof mounts are nice and simple install.



Jeep is sitting on its own weight.

These long lowers are ment to be used with stock or adjustable short uppers. Adjustables were used over the stock for tummy tuck.. this has great road manners compaired to a short arm and better flex than a short arm. When and at max flex there is no binding or pinion angle change so for my application this is the route i chose to take. If i wanted a true long arm i would go with a tri link front and a 4 link rear from poly performance.. but this wont be untill after my deployment and when i do coil over conversion.
