For the upper link ill be using:

-7/8s ruff stuff heims

-1.5 inch ID .25 wall DOM, probably going to be sleeved, i need to do more research.

Lower link

-(2) 1 1/4 ruff stuff heims

-(2) ballistic fab poly bushings

-1.5 ID .25 wall DOM, possibly going to be sleeved with 2 inch ID DOM, not sure on the width yet. I still need to do a little more research.

Axle Bracketry

- Ballistic Fab Coil buckets, with LCA mounts, and shock mounts. http://www.ballisticfabrication.com/...bo_p_1461.html

- Im going to be re-using a trackbar mount that i have.

-Barnes 4wd, adjustable link tower. http://www.barnes4wd.com/product_inf...oducts_id=2400

Axle Bracketry

- Ballistic Fab link mount http://www.ballisticfabrication.com/...nt_p_1511.html

- Ballisitc Fab upper/lower link bracket http://www.ballisticfabrication.com/...nt_p_1164.html

They will both be welded to HD offroad engineering Frame stiffeners.

I did the DD mod cause it was cheap, i bought it for 700, decided i didnt want it anymore and sold it for 2250. Hence why im building d44s and a custom 3 link.

But i do plan on buying a 96 xj with 150k for 1000, hopefully soon, theres one at the dealership my dad works at.

Went to a local car show, i flexed out on my friend (4doorxj)s tire. You should have seen the crowd around our jeeps, people went right under my front bumper and posed for pictures.
