What lift are you running

I own 2 MJ's so my lists are kinda long.

On my 89 (which I just got in Jan, and I am still sorting out what the PO did).
It is a rusty's 4.5" coils, Pro comp Fixed LCA's, with a Pro comp adj trac bar. For the rear it is a SOA conversion. It is rolling on 31 x12.5 proc omp x-terrians, with some wild off set rims.

My 90 aka Ping Pong is a beast. I will start with the front suspension mods. I am running Rusty's 6.5 coils, with RE drop brackets. For a trac bar I am running RE HD mount , bar , and brace. For disconnects I am running the JKS quicker Disco's. My tie rods are Rusty's tie rod conversion, with his steering stabilizer. For my rear set up, I am running a SOA conversion, with a long shackle (8 3/4" eye to eye). The long shackle meant I needed a SYE cause of crazy vibes at speed, plus my yoke was barely engaging the t-case. Also this set up has crazy flex, which meant the need for longer lines, so I used a 22" line that was available and a 12" hard line, with a specail mount. And As I sit right now, I can almost flex it out.

My interior mods are simple. Spray in bed liner, 96 bucket seats, Cj7 center console, Cb mounted right to the front roof brace, Mag light mounted to rear rough brace. I am also sporting Skull design tint.

For custom parts on the body I have a Flat black paint job from Rustoleium. A custom made front grill (expanded metal and 1x1 tubing), Home made front and rear bumper(front bumper being replaced with a Rigid co FBW), and home made Tail light covers( expanded metal and angle iron, with sheet metal screws). Hi-lift mounted to the inside of the bed using sway bar mounts.

cj7xjmj,
No lift for me yet. This is what I am looking to get - http://www.tntcustoms.com - XJ Y-Link Radus Arm Kit. I am going to wait until the kit has been used and tested so I can get some feed back on it. It looks fantastic and the few who have it are pleased.-Rich

I have looked at this kit also, the x-memeber looks stout, I am just not to sure of the downward bend in the lower arms. Also the price is kinda high.
