JBA 2.5 lift

10:20 A.M. and fed ex just delivered my JBA 2.5 lift kit the "silver" edition. Ive never installed a lift kit before. But Im really good with my extensive tool selection. and Ive borrowed my local mechanics gargage for the weekend. will keep you guys posted. and Im waiting on my bumper from Atthehlem, they should go together great. The Lib already has the RRO supersliders(I kno, I Kno) which Ill be welding extra supports too. I put the flowmaster cat back(looks mint) and RRO roof rails and garvin basket all last weekend. so this weekend the lift goes. will post before,during and afters.
Any useful insight will be appreciated. Pictures to follow.

Well, how about a few photo of what you have gotten done up to date.....go ahead...tease us a little.

I will be very interested to see what your impression of the JBA set up is like, I think that will be one of next investments. I am not overly crazy about needing a lift for how I use my KK, but I would sure like a suspension that doesn't bottom out every time a run over a sucker stick or piece of gum in the roadway.

You were pretty quick to catch the mod bug!

A word of advice though, none of this has happened until pics are shown lol

With that said, pics or it didn't happen

Did you order any extra rear spacers to level out the natural rear end listing problem (where the Liberty always leans to one side).

Pull up your photobucket page and click on the photo you want to post to make it large. The over to the side of the large photo click the link to copy the direct link, once you click on it, it will say copied. The back on the KK forum on you post where you want to place your photos go up to the little yellow picture link and click it, then paste your photobucket link. This should post your photo.

Sorry for the posted photo of my KK in your thread....but I had to remember how to post a photo before trying to explain it to you,

here we go...........

just finished spending 8 hours on the lift kit, Im fairly dissapointed in the dorections that came with it, stopped using them and It went along well. the front shock assembly seems to leave a decent sice gap at the bottom mounting to the lower A arm. also for 2500. bucks no extended stabilizer links?? cause no my sway bar looks like ****. and the worst part about the entire install was getting the battery tray/fuse box out, and getting the second bolt to the upper A arm was a beayatch. but its done. tommorow the rear end and a cold air intake. will upload pics tommorow after the lift is done.
