As far as my plans, I'm kinda at a stand still right now. I have a king's dreams at a peasant's salary, so my plans will be slow, hence the title to my so called build. Most of what I have done already is documented on my profile, so I won't bore you with that, but I plan to add pics of what I have done and a brief explanation as I go. I don't think I'll go any higher than the OME 2.5, but would like to get the rest of the Currie CA's (I have the front lowers for now), do a TT, SYE, DC DS, and some Under Armor. It's my DD, so it has to be reliable, and my wife needs to be able to drive it comfortably on occassion.

This was a Xmas present a few years ago. Decided to do a little cheapo mod to keep the front license plate on.
Are those factory fog lights?

So what's the ultimate plan? 33s? 35s? I keep tossing around the idea of eventually stepping up to a 33. My 35 will have to go though, with the rear 44 you have alot more options!

I'm trying real hard to be realistic to how I drive my rig. 35's look awesome, but I just don't have the bankroll to pull it off correctly and still drive it to work every day. I gotta make a decision by this summer since my BFG's are about at the end of the line. I gotta quit listening to DaFuzz! LOL! He's a bad influence and I'm so easilly swayed! LOL!

Haha, they definitely do look great. I'm having enough trouble building for 31s financially. Any way you go is expensive, it's Jeeps we're discussing haha. Definitely going the currie control arm mount though, seeing them on your rig and hearing how they're not "rough" on the pavement definitely changed my mind from the JKS.

Yep! The ride and steering response is way better, and I only have the front lowers. Can't wait to get the uppers. I almost went the JKS route as well. Dirk can be very convincing on the phone. Glad I went the Currie way and didn't look back!

Aren't they a bit more narrow than most control arms as well? May help with some rubbing issues I will surely have

Yes, they do help with clearance, but you shouldn't have any clearance issues running 31's. I ran my 31's with the stock CA's for 4 years before getting the Curries.
