There was a lot of discussion about stacking the OME HD coils up front/Blistein 5100's adjustable and exceeding that 23" mark.

Just took measurements and hub to fender I'm sitting at 22.75" up front and 23" rear. EXACTLY how I wanted it to come out!

THanks man, I think the wheels really set it off. Wasn't sure how much I would like them before I got them mounted and balanced, but definitely one of my favorite parts. Looks even better in person too!

That's a perfect stance in my opinion. I think 33s look amazing on these WKs WHILE keeping some rake. Nice job, I'm going to replicate this.

Completely agree. Its so aggressive looking with the stance and height. Fills the wheels wells perfectly. If you have any questions man, let me know. One of these next few days I'm going to start a build thread.

How much did that end up costing you, if you don't mind me asking? Minus the wheels/tires.

I'm graduating this week and moving to full time at work from my part-time/intern pay scale (~600% raise!), so I think it's time to start looking at mods.

I figured it cost me about $1400 without wheels and tires. For the whole thing it was ~$2400

That seems steep? Is that with labor or did you install it yourself?

Yup! Got a set of 5, with 85% tread left for $600. Had to drive 5 hours to get them to Reno, NV but happened to fall the same weekend as Valentines Day, so me and the GF had a nice little getaway. Killed two birds with one stone on that one

Annnnnd who did you go through to get the JKS disconnects for $100? They're... Rear disconnects...Right? The ones I'm finding These, for example are listed for the front. Confused. Pretty much ready to order my lift (almost exactly like yours) and just trying to figure everything out... Any help is appreciated.

Got them brand new from a guy who had them laying around in our local Jeep Club. I got a hell of a deal. Pretty much everything I bought was on sale. Got the cosmetic/blemished wheel spacers from Spidertrax eBay store, the tires used, the JKS new from a club member, the coils and struts/shocks were both on sale when I bought them from Kolak. The only thiing I paid full price for was the spacer, trackbar, and UCA's

What is the $230 Rusty's tracbar and spacer?

The tracbar is only 130 bucks IIRC.
