I picked up a used Budget Boost today, with stock springs and re shocks. Think I will be fine when I get my Highline tubes from Rokmen. Jeff says they will finally ship the week after EJS.

Thanks for the compliment.
I agree! I like the one's without the flare! Rokmen's stuff is great...high quality and great looks!

you are gonna hate the lack of flex you'll get with a BB and stock springs....I ran that for a while and then finally switched to full coils, much happier and much better ride

Installed the BB today. I think this can be called LCOG. But I will not getr my highlines till monday. I was going wheeling Saturday ,but there will be to much binding in the front and no clearance for the 35s and my perfect stock fenders


also installed the Riddler front diff cover. It took a few minutes to paint the black in the middle with a brush.

Got a question if anyone can answer please do. I have a Currie Antirock for the 4 in lift. Is it okay that the arms are at an angle upward with the legs adjusted all the way in?

As far as I know you are supposed to adjust the AR based on the lift height.

Not yet. I am waiting for the right one. I do have a few emails with the local dealership who is being totally ridiculous about an LJ that they have (and had since Aug.). I though about posting a thread in the Wrangler GD and see what people think.

The arms look pretty darn slanted. You want them up at about 10-15 degrees but it's all dependent upon droop. Obviously if you've got them too flat they'll start to limit the droop.

Yeah I'd definitely bring that down. If you wouldn't mind, could you take two measurements for me--ground to skid and ground to frame? And I'm assuming that's a 2" or 2.25" BB?
