Nice. Getting them parts discounts!
And $150.00 retail isn't terrible. Is there like coupons or anything the general public can get a hold of?

Yep, I guess its a perk of the job !

I did a little research and They should be direct bolt in since I know they will bolt directly into 3rd and 4th gen camaros and their seats bolt directly into YJ's

Here is a part # Global Servicing - Racing Seat. Part #: FML100

Dude...
SO AWESOME! I love the little stocker that could!
Some really great pics in there. It's been so fun wheeling with the big Jeeps with my little stock YJ. Going all the same places they do with a small jeep is very, very satisfying. Especially when the JK owners have that look of fear in their face while you have an ear to ear grin!

Very cool.

Cheers

Yep. I made it about 2/3rd the way up a trail that has requirements of dual lockers and 35's. I turned around when I started having traction issues and boulders that were bigger then my tires lol. But I have done that trail in my Xj several times. And there was a JKUR on 35's behind me the whole day since I was the trail guide so technically I went further then him .

Ok guys. I figured I'll help out the f12 crew and give a unbiased review of a entry level kit. In a couple of weeks I will be ordering a 4" lift for my 89 which is currently stock. I will be choosing one of the 3 following lifts

1. Rough Country
2. Zone
3. Superlift 3.5"

The tires I will be using are the 33x10.50 BFG KM2's off my XJ since my wife does not like them on road in snow and I am replacing them with Duratracs so there is no sense in wasting a set of tires with 10k miles on them. I will also be throwing in a set of 4 banger axles with 4:10's and possibly front/rear Spartans lockers.

Keep in mind I have run very good setups on my 95 so I will be giving an honest assessment asfar as bang for the buck

On my 95 I ran a 3.5" Rustys lift which failed after a month. It was replaced with a 4.5" Re lift W/ Bilstein 5100's. I ran that for years. Then I replaced the RE springs with a set of Alcan springs so I know what I can get out of a quality lift asfar as ride and performance.

If I could afford to go Alcan again I would but being a home owner, and having 2 kids with 1/2 the income as I made a few years ago I simply can not afford that anymore. This building the smurf on a ramen noodle and steel reserve budget. Vs a Filet Mignon and Top shelf Bourbon budget
