You'll be okay with the stock uppers and lowers.

good! That will let me get this done sooner... Then I will replace the stock with aftermarket. Obviously he JBA seem to be superior, anybody use the RRO? I knew they had problems at first and was wondering if they had been resolved.

Also, anybody know of a good thread or installation instructions for the OME?

I think most threads I read just recommended them, not something you need but something you'll eventually need. I got them because I have 285/70r17 that I'm going to put on and didn't know if they would rub the bolt back there and found them new in the for sale area for a great deal.

Ah.....my bad, I was assuming you were talking about the rear control arms. Still, the front stock uppers will be good.....might eventually look to upgrade them.

I understand the whole trac bar idea, but if most of my "off-roading" is just light trails around my hunting camp and farm, and 95% just daily driving, do I need the longer sway bar links and brake line brackets or what ever or would I be fine with the stock stuff out back (with ome hd springs, and a 1.5" spacer)

Are the extended rear sway links really needed??

x2 that's what I was asking. Especially for almost completely daily driving and some light trail riding.

From what I understand, if you are going with just the OME setup, you shouldn't need extended links; however, if you are running the modified that you will need them. Also, with the rear trackbar, it will significantly shift your axle about 0.5". I do believe some have run the modified without the trackbar, but eventually ended up installing one.

I am, but it took around 3-4 months for my stock ones to wear out. That was with offroading regularly.

Perfect. That should let me get by for a few months before putting the UCA's on. You are running RRO correct? How do you like those?
