Jks. It is one for the 4" or the below 4" lift.

I'm running the same trackbar on a TJ that used to have more lift, but am back at stock. ..my plan is to do some 2" springs & the currie tb or the metalcloak... although the mc is designed for 3.5" lift length wise.

Do they make inserts to go back to stock?

I think it works well for the low lift. I am at about 1" over stock height for my suspension too. It is just hat my front axle is pushed a little forward.

The new currie offset one should be here for install next weekend.... along with a few other goodies.

Got the super winch part in yesterday. All super warn fans should look away for this post....

Removed the upper bracket/solenoid setup from the motor. Cut off all the brackets and drilled the original solenoid mounting plate so I will be able to mount it flat to the alum inners. Mounted and wired up the new switch mech.



Just need to get some measurements for the new cables I will need. Going with 2 ga just like the other battery cables.

This is where I might mount it. Either on the passenger side (shorter wire) or driver side (cleaner run for the winch controller cable). I will be running the controller still.





Needs a good cleaning and a paint touch up but I like the new look.

Well, I ordered a tb from currie late Friday afternoon. Over the weekend, I noticed they didn't pull the money out of my account. Around noon my time (10 am Cali time) I got a call saying the tb was on back order but would ship out Friday and they would charge me then. That is great customer service it you ask me.

Anyways, I saw a deal couldn't pass up last week and it came in this afternoon.



But they would probably be more like this.

Here she is on the dealers lot. An ending of an era...



An era without a radiator shroud. Just picking up parts. But I did catch the owners eye enough to get him to come out and we talked jeep and he showed me his sick YJ on fab 9s COs & struts, LS, stak,...... And so on.
