How was the quality of the kit. I am looking into buying the same type of kit, was going to go with the BTF. This Kit looks almost identical.

The quality and and fit meant of he cage is great, I was going to go with the btf to until I saw the shipping cost! The trail-ready cage was 270 to my door which was a steal compared to the btf cage. I would recommend it to any one!

On a side note I am wheeling in the morning, going doorless with a high of 40 degrees and plan to play in some snow! Pics to fallow!

How do you like your Couragias? I am a fan of those for sure, but want to know what you think.

I love them off road, I air them down to 10 psi and the grab and dig like no other. They leave a little to be desired on the rd tho, the are't to loud but they didt balance out the best. I did a static balance on them and they all took about 6 oz to zero out! But I would recommend them to any one looking for a budget mt that wants to good off road traction!

I need to work at a tire shop. That's not a bad price at all. Hmm, you got me thinking now. by the way, sweet YJ. I'm sure I've voted for this one once or twice in the YJOTM contests.

So I had a blast out on my clubs sober up run yesterday. We had enough snow to bury the k5 on 40s in are group the only crappy thing that happen to me yesterday is I a guy slid down a steep icy hill at what felt like a least 10 - 15 mph right in to the back of me! He bent my tire carrier which suck but I will try and bend it back some. On another note I got to pull and winch lots of guys yesterday, it seems ever one had the when in doubt throttle out mentality when it should on been when in doubt crawl it out. I didt get stuck once running 8psi and 1-2 Gearow range

So today I replaced my frame side leaf spring bushings because my jeep seems to be eating the fabtech bushings I bought for it a year ago lol, I consider these moog bushing a upgrade when it comes to quality I don't plan on changing out the shackle side bushing because the are still in good shape and I believe that design will yield better flex.
Today I also installed a new alt that was under warentty do to the bearing to the bearing going bad on it, I delete the pic of it but the back half also had a crack across the case of alt I have no idea how that happen.
Lastly I flex it out just to find that my shocks are limiting my down travel still, what do you guys recommend for shocks up front I need something with a little more down travel???? I am thinking maybe going with this setup that way I would fit a bigger shock.........http://www.mountainoffroad.com/_e/Sh...ront_Upper.htm

What are your compressed and extended length shocks? Look into ford shock towers, $30 for the pair from a ford dealer. They might provide as much as the shock hoops. I ran them in the back of the tj to run 10" travel shocks on a 2" lift.
