I bought from this ebay seller CLICK and have been very happy it so far. Install was easy and it comes with the boot, although I've yet to properly attach it.

This EXACT question has been asked at least 5 times in different threads in the last couple months. Please search first next time.

Welcome to JF, and good luck with whatever kit you decide on. I bought my first one from Quadratec, however they are WAY to expensive for what is involved.

1977 - CJ7.......1979 CJ7.......1981 - CJ8.......1986 CJ7 Cant get enough!

I had heard that only one guy makes the kits for everyone. If I recall correctly I heard that from Novack.

I have the JB kit and love it but it's the only one I've used, so I'm a little biased. Less than an hour and it was done. Good price too.

I have the popping out of gear problem. I was told that I'd need to take the t-case apart and put in a stronger spring or something to that effect. $5 part with a lot of labor to install.

I decided to just use a bungy cord to hold the one stick forward. There was a small hole in the floor that seemed like it was put there just for this purpose.

It only pops out for the rear axle going down hill under load in 4lo.
