I've been running them with 2" BDS coils. The shocks were taken off my 2011 JKU. Smooth on road ride, but I haven't taken the front links off and really flexed them out yet though.

Thanks,
I used an eye bolt, drilled and tapped a hole and used the nut to hold it tight, stainless steal cable, some cable clamps and a carabiner type clip. Cheep and easy, got everything from tractor supply for mabe $10.
If you want I can send you some pics later.

Took apart my driver's side exhaust manifold (what a PITA!) to find the source of the terrible noise that had plagued my WJ since I saved her from my sister last week... 2 broken manifold bolts.

It appears that my manifold itself may actually be warped a tiny bit, so I'm hoping to find a machine shop that can make it perfectly flat, rather than buying a new one...

Has anyone done this? Is this a bad idea? Should I just but a new one? Or is there an upgrade that I can do while I've got it apart?

yes that's right but I didn't clear coat it.. I didn't use clear coat so I could take the shade off if and when I need to (won't pass inspection in Utah) I did the same thing to my tail lights
