Looks amazing man. I really love that bumper how the winch is sits in it. You wouldnt be looking to part with those RE control arms would you?

Thanks. Thats the Custom 4x4 Fabrications TrailBlazer Winch Bumper. Its handy when you live near the company. I saved a lot on shipping....lol.

Sorry, but the control arms are already spoken for. The guy is picking them up next week.


Now, for pics as it sits. I spun down the ACOS 1 1/2 inches. Next week I am installing the 1.5 inch Treks U-Bolt eliminator kit on the rear.



I need to secure my pool noodle. It keeps wanting to fall down....lol.



The drivers side pool noodle fell out somewhere.





The only real problem I had with the long arms....



You tell me how you are supposed to get a nut in there with that clearance? I ended up grinding down one side of the bolt head and put the nut on the outside.

Yea I have only been there once, but do plan on picking some things up some time soon from them. My buddy (Aircruiser) is getting the same long arms. They look nice, and are saposed to flex really well.

EDIT: BTW is that white paint, or do the birds there hate you?

No, its always been Patriot Blue. I have bigger tires. I will get those on once the 1.5 UBE is installed.

The birds hate me. My woman has a 2005 WK that is also Patriot Bue. Both of them look polka dotted. There is a large tree over our driveway. We are getting a carport later this year. I just gotta make sure its tall enough to house the XJ.

I highly recommend it. The XJ doesnt ride nearly as harsh as it did with the short arms.

I never mentioned before that the kit I recieved was missing the bolts for the control arms. I sent a email to Iron Rock today to let them know I had to spend $20 on bolts. I told them I was in the market for new shocks and was looking at the Dosch Tech Prerunner 8000 on their site. They told me they are going to give me a $20 discount on the shocks to make up the difference. They replied back to my email within 10 minutes of me sending it. I am very pleased. Way to go, Iron Rock....now thats customer service!!
