Came back from superstition. I will have pictures up soon. Did some serious off-roading and had a blast.

From the trip, I decided i would get a 1" Body lift because i need to get my jeep higher off the ground. Also, I saw some MCE Flatty Fenders and i really like those. I'm going to buy the body lift now and wait on the fenders tho. I will probably cut the ones i have now

I've heard that the daystar Bl is best because it replaces the old bushings, but i kinda wanted the jks to get 1.25". What do you guys think

ya know theres something about that avatar that tells me you like Def Leppard huh...lol

anyways, i say daystar. those bushings are probably already shot, if not, they will be soon. it should be easy for you, mine are rusted in, hard as a rock, and i already stripped 2 body mounts out, i guess i should go ahead and strip the rest out while ime at it lol. i guess 16 years of rust makes it a little harder.

oh, i say get a stinger bumper... it would look super cool

well, even if you buy the daystar, you should still be kinda close to enough for a bumper, you can always save for a couple weeks, then you should have enough.
