Those JBA UCA's look much beefier than the stock arms. I'm guessing they can really take a beating and will last forever.

I agree on the thickness...trying to do as much as possible to make this Jeep last for a long time.

Also ordered a set of these....greaseable tie rod ends...they look stronger than OEM. I am trying to upgrade as much as possible and just get one alignment. Other than replacing bushings and the lower control arm....anything other wearable item I should look at replacing. I was thinking about the bushings for the sway bar, but I can do that after an alignment.

Well your rotors will eventually wear out. Your axle half shafts will too. And your swaybar and your sway links and your steering rack and .....

The rotors are really the only thing I could think of. You'll have all the wheels off anyway and alot of the suspension disassembled so if you have the $'s you might as well smack the current one's off and put some newer aftermarket rotors. Only thing is, are your current rotors in bad shape? Are the new rotors you're talking about already on the rig?

My lift came in 4 boxes, unfortunately, I only got 3 in the first delivery. I live in northern Ontario and have the items delivered to a border store, so that made two trips. Unfortunately, Kolak could not provide the shipping numbers, as they are shipped from different area. But, I'd did find out how to get them from a partial shipment (UPS anyways) there is a reference number on the UPS tag, so you can type that into their website and it will bring up all the items for that shipping lot. Just in case you were wondering. But it did save me unnecessary trip cross the border.

2008 CRD QDII, OME HD, Pintlers wheels with 265/70/17 Goodyear Silent Armour's, Jeepinbyal UCA's. 4XGuard Front guard, Side Guard, belly guard, Matrix HC. GDE ECO Tune w/ delete.

I went with the OME HD....I think it is listed as 2.5"

And my fogs are yellow...I bought yellow bulbs and yellow vinyl...they are ok...more cosmetic than anything.

Those Duratrac's sure look mighty tasty. What size you get those fat meats in?

edit: nvm - I read you got 265/70/17's... I can't wait to see how this turns out...

Have you already done your pinchweld and fender trim mods??

All Gear, No Skill.

That is all for now...oil change, pinch weld and fender trim this weekend....hopefully lift in next weekend...
