There are other ways of adding belly clearance without lifting your vehicle off the axles...like 40s, 42s, 44s, etc

Yep, the draglink is the exact same as the TJ, bolt in. The tierod is much beefier and takes the same tie rod ends.

Thanks man! You have no clue how much hearing that helps. When ppl say it looks good and such it makes the thousands of dollars I've spent seem not so bad. And yea. Its staying tan. I'm repainting it this weeknd

Oh. BTW. B2carpen. I took a page from your book and did a nice Russian alignment. Came out great. No DW or nothing wheel is straight and drive great. Just a wrench and a tape measurer.

Sick deal on the tops! I kinda wish I didn't sell mine, but I don't have a great place to store it, and I don't need to DD my rig, so the soft top should be good enough and the $$ was nice!
