Thanks, I shopped pretty hard and found the ZJ for $800.00. Got with Kolak for the OME Heavy Duty Springs and Bilsteins for around $650.00ish subtract shipping. Then got real lucky and found some brand new JK Rubicon takeoffs for $495.00 and spent another $120.00 or so on 5x5 to 4.5x5 adapters to run the JK wheels. Also, decided since I was going to put new springs on I would add some new Isolators so I spent $60.00 if I remember correctly off amazon for some new polyurathane ones. And to address your question about the trac bar I plan on getting a front and rear adjustable. But for now its not very noticable at all.

Drove her on the highway last night for the first time since the lift wheels and tires. Was crazy impressed with how well it tracked and hit a few nice for what I thought to be sure death wobble holes and barely even felt them. Sure am enjoying these Bilstiens.

Installed the 6000k HID kit. Makes driving to work much better.

Were you planning on installing actual projectors so you don't blind everyone with glare? (I swear one day I'm going to take a pellet gun around town and shoot out every HID that's in a reflector housing.)

Cost me 360ish shipped because I live in Anchorage. I bought the 2Gal kit and it was completely worth the money.

Hey kimber, nice truck. I was wondering how you applied it. Looks real uniform and clean.
I like it

I actually rolled it went on real easy. I would definately suggest doing the math and mixing the color and then separate the gallon into smaller tupperware containers then mixing in the appropriate amount of hardener per fl oz needed as to not waste any. Depending on your weather it tends to harden really fast.
