First thing we tackled was the 1" Rokmens body lift and the 1" JKS motor mount lift. Both are made very well with great instructions and went in without a hitch
I was kind of fearing the motor mount lift because I've read nightmare stories on how tough they are but besides getting a pound of mud that I had put onto the bottom of Brutus it was a really easy install!
Next up was the Currie Anti-Rock... I have to say, believe it or not, this was the hardest part to install! The bushings and the sway bar are such a tight fit its incredible... And installing one for the first time your not wanting to pound on things but thats what it takes! The bushings are a tight fit into the front tube so just wack the heck out of them and they will seat. The sway bar itself is a mother to get in... So grease it well and have a BIG dead hammer... It goes in but good grief! That sucker is a tight fit!!!
Last thing for the day and the easiest was the Rokmen Mercenary bumper and COMEUP winch..... Again, I have to say, both are very high quality products that install very easy. Somebody has done their homework here
I know it was a lot of posts right there but I installed a body lift, motor mount lift, steering, trac bar, sway bar, bumper, and winch in an afternoon Not too shabby if I say so myself, though my body hurts like you know what now!
The finished product!
And Brutus drives sooo much better! Tighter steering, more responsive, a little more sway though not bad but because of the lighter sway bar I feel the road less! All in all, what a great combo and hats off to each manufacturers for such good products!
I would have liked to have kept the rear bumper a little lighter
But needing a bumper that had a hitch receiver and the ability to carry my spare and extra fuel and water during extended hunting and expedition trips was a must. I also have need for the use of the rear cargo area and can't keep a spare there so the trade off of a little extra weight for the added utility of this bumper is exactly what I needed
