These are really starting to fly out the door now. We've also been working closely with developing ZJ and YJ kits too so we should see those within a month hopefully.

If you want a ZJ to guinea pig this out on let me know. I have an 8.8 sitting in my garage that needs to be set up. ZJ isn't my DD so I can be without it for a while.

Thanks. I'm going to try to find a local source first but I'll keep it in mind.

let us know when you get the ZJ kit set up. I'd like to swap in an 8.8 eventually, and the IRO kit doesn't come with a truss

Got my TJ kit last week and finally started in on it today. Great product, although there is a LOT of welding. Going to be a great axle build.







Thanks for the excellent product.

Looking good although I think you might want to look at your pinion angle. The truss should be straight vertical and the pinion should be rotated up. It looks like your pinion is almost rotated down which means when you bolt it all up the truss (upper link mounts) will be way too far backward.

Right. I haven't even tacked it onto the axle yet; was just tacking the truss components together and using the axle to ensure the pieces were well-aligned.

This was probably the most talked about product of ours at Offroad Expo this last weekend. Here is a picture of me and Ian Johnson hanging out before the crowds swamped our booth. Right behind my left arm is the display for the 8.8 TJ swap kit with truss.

It's an awsome kit.. I've done a mock up with my axle and it's straight forward... Pretty much place and weld and forget! Sweet product!
