Any rear stretch as you do this? You can french in upper coil buckets like a lot of TJ guys do. May help lose a little bit of height.

I don't like that type of 4 link I'd do like my yj. Double triangulated. Front and rear

I'll definitely be doing more research. I need to know more before I make a decision. I do know this set up works. Though maybe not the best, it's tested and functional.

The enticing part of this deal to me was that it was complete and with all the suspension components included. I did not want to have to buy new CAs or modify a bunch from the start.

Here are some pics of the rig it came off of. Pretty simple yj from the top but not so much underneath.
I saw that 8.8 on nc4x4 and almost picked it up, but I don't think the brackets would have worked for me. That's an awesome score.

Yep, same place. I have been searching high and low for an 8.8 that's geared and somewhat bolt in ready. For the price that most want for them around here I just picked up both!

I would leave it alone and run it as is. A 4 link with track bar will perform just as good as a triangulated 4 link if setup correctly. If it ain't broke don't fix it.

Yep that's a good deal. Are you keeping the leafs up front?

PO said it preformed surprisingly well on his rig so I definitely think it'll be good on mine. he gave me everything down to the limiting straps so it will essentially be the same.

I will be keeping the leaves up front until I decide otherwise. Theres no truss on the D30 so theres always room for a link setup later on.

Solid plan. Even though you'll look like a backwards Cherokee

That's how mine will be too except I'm planning on C/Os in the rear. It's gonna look like a Frankentard.

Nah I see that all the time. 'Cept most are SOA in the front not SUA like you. But still...

And nice score Carlos! It looks pretty much like a stock TJ set up not a true 4 link, but really nice nonetheless.

Cheers

I am doing an install/ review as part of our deal but they retail at $198 shipped anywhere in the world.

Mine shipped Friday from Australia, and arrived today! I'm excited to get it in my new front axle and get those installed.
