I'm pretty much a noob when it comes to all this stuff, but you have to start somewhere.

What do you mean extended swing arms? Do you mean the lower control arm? If that's what you are talking about, you typically need extended control arms when you go taller than 4". They give you more stability at higher lifts.
He was referring to me But don't worry yours looks good to

Thanks for answering my questions! That makes sense to replace those especially at that price.

Thanks again,

I like a lot, it's very snug, the leather is very well treated and soft. It feel like a brand new steering wheel

Does it seem like it's a factory fit?

Yeah, I mean the leather fits very tight and it takes about 25-30 mins to do the stitching so the end result is a very tight fit, like a glove...

Today I was able to find a set of JK moabs for $150 in my local craigslist. They are in like-new condition.




I didn't like the the color as much so I went and got some enamel dark gray paint:

Looks good ! But I think the Alloy would have been killer on that color, also good deal on 5 wheels, Nice find

Yeah, after looking at if for a while I've decided to remove the paint and bring it back to original. I hope it works..
