i really don't know what steering arms they are. the axle was already setup with high steering and thats why i bought it. i test drove it for one day and the tires really suck so i'm getting new ones. the shocks are AWESOME!!! it takes almost all my strength and weight to compress them and they absorb the bumps really well in combination with the wrangler soft springs. i do have a lot of body roll as of now. i'm hooking up the sway bar soon and will test that out. i'll be off roading it lightly this coming weekend so i'll let you know how the shocks perform but i expect it will be well. they are bilstein 5125's. the same as the ones with reservior but i elected no reservior as i have no room for them. the 36" military wranglers are in worse shape than i thought and i need a front end alignment. as of now it's fine under 50 mph but its alot of vibration at the front above that. new radials should help alot.

was able to get out and test the suspension out this past saturday. every year there is a jeep relay for life event to raise money for cancer so its a great time to test things out and for a good cause. the suspension did very well and when coming off a large object it lands soft like a coil spring jeep. i was surprised on how well it did.

here is the new crossmember/skid plate. just need some plating for the bottom. i welded coupler nuts so the skid plate can be removed to access the tcase oil pan.
gained about 6 inches in making my own skid plate

well i got new tires mounted and put on rocker guards too. next is some fender trimming and using TJ flares.

had to cut the run flats off so i can keep the dual beadlocks.

Thanks. My goals were low as possible with 37" that can drive everyday making down interstate speeds and on a tight budget. If I had a taller garage I'd lift it up one more inch.

What did you use to fill in the hole where the sunroof was. I want to do the same for mine. It looks good. Can you post the steps you did to fix the hole?
