Here'a a link to the instructions from MORE on installing booms. I believe that the center bolt should hit the frame on full flex to keep the shackle from inverting.

Interesting, i have shackles different.. not using center bolt at all (rear) because it's hitting frame also and i don't want that. I believe many people do the same?

Not sure if you ordered fender flares yet or not but I would recommend either GenRight or TNT customs complete replacement front fender with flare and rear corner armor with flare. Both places make high quality products. You can get them in a high fender option also which will give you more room for those big tires. They are pretty easy to install also. Relocating some stuff for the front fenders is the hardest part, other than that it is just bolt on and go.

How was the installation of the LED tail lights? I have been thinking about buying a set. They don't require cutting a hole at all do they?

Also I like your suspension setup. I am in the market for a new one. What exactly do you have, and do you like the function of yours?

Nice to see the progress!! I'm also interested in your set up. I'd like to do something like yours in the future. You went with SOA right?

I will get xenon 6" flat fenders, I would love to get GenRight or TNT, but all corners are just fixed so i should have been thinking fenders before :-(

OroLED LiteDOTs didnt require any cutting, probably would get something else now, because i cant get them function right.. i dont know how to get turn signal and breaking light work same time

Teraflex 001234800 - TeraFlex Revolver Rear Shock Bar for 87-95 Jeep® Wrangler YJ - Quadratec and something else to come ... can't say much about how i like it yet.. anyway, shocks which came with RE 4.5 kit are crap, didnt last long.

rulppa thanks for the response, I appreciate the in sight. I think I am leaning towards the Rubicon Express 4.5" extreme duty lift with FOX OEM emulsion compression dampener shocks. I think it could be a pretty sweet setup. I have only heard good things about the Rubicon Express lift also, so I think it will be worth the money.

I think this would make a pretty good setup and very similar to rulppa's setup. They offer a variety of shock options. I am looking at the FOX OEM emulsion compression dampener ones. It seems to me like it would be a very capable setup. Just a suggestion. Hope it helps.

I'd definately go with the 4" ones. I like the look of the tires sticking out from the flares a little. Looks beefier lol.

Thanks to EU lawmakers, it needs to be 6" .. after inspection, i'll just add spacers to get beefier look if needed

Quadratec didnt want to sell me mixed pair of xenon flat fenders ..
