Thanks fellas, and you guys also have great looking rigs.

I got to keep it in perspective.... I look at it sometimes and realize how basic and weak it is. But I have to remember what I use it for, where I use it, and not to mention, you build it up too much and things are just too easy, so you keep looking for harder and harder obstacles and the Jeep overall gets less and less usable. And you get less satisfaction wheeling anything but the most extreme terrain you can find. I think after this suspension rework, I'm really going to focus on some other areas.

Ok so next week is a big week for my little Jeep. My UCF brackets arrive on Tuesday, and tear down begins. I've decided to leave my rear links alone. After doing some research on what length's have been working well for people these are actually already pretty close at 28.5" eye to eye. Short for a "long" arm. I am going to take approx. 2 inches off the front links and get them down to 27" ish. I need to do this because at my low lift height, and lower profile of the UCF mount my links will most likely hit the frame, as it is now it's very close.

I also just ordered this....



It about killed me to spend the money, I don't see why it costs so much! Pretty exciting changes. I can't wait to dig in.
