Relocate them spots to your windshield, then put your fogs there on your bumper. You'll like the spotlights higher up off the ground.

Joe Dillard 04-01-2012 11:27 PM

Yep, looks mostly stock, but you gotta start somewhere. :)

Your front shackles are behind the front axle - right? If so, that's an SRS (shackle reversal system) and not stock on a YJ.

ziloh22 04-01-2012 11:45 PM

wow, i never noticed that.. its a mystery to me, old guy owned it since 95 b4 me

ziloh22 04-01-2012 11:57 PM

now on the front end, the brackets that are in the front ( rear leaf bracket ) thats bolt on right? ill have to look tmra..

Joe Dillard 04-01-2012 11:59 PM

Some SRS kits are bolt-on while others are weld-in.

ok guys so i need a little help... im going to stick with the existing reverse shackle system that was on the jeep, im adding the 4 inch lift, now, is it ok if i put the 3/4 boom shackles on this reverse setup in the front? here is what it looks like, is this correct? i have see guys run the booms the opposite way with the opening towards the rear of the jeep

ziloh22 04-07-2012 05:53 PM

well here go go, just about finished up.. just need tires now.. random pics.. 4 inch with 3/4 shackles..

Sean H 04-07-2012 05:57 PM

Looking good.

ziloh22 04-07-2012 07:26 PM

I have a bit Of rear vibrations going on after I hit 50. Maybe because I did a 4 inch w 3/4 shackles with the shackle reversal?

Sean H 04-07-2012 07:37 PM

probably rear driveshaft... guessing its SYE time for you.

The time now is 07:13 PM.
