Well it was like a mini Christmas today and Northridge 4X4 was Santa Claus.
Steering stabiliser which came with o instructions (guess its pretty self
explanatory) but some torque specs would be nice.

Licence relocation bracket


Licence plate light and third brake light

.75 inch spacer for the front to level things out.

Hopefully I want need anything extra with those spacers like new shocks right?

Well I could not wait so I installed the steering stabiliser and the licence plate relocation bracket and lite plate. I do have a question about the steering stabiliser. Is the tapered end of the nut suppose to be flush? and I tightened the nuts to 35ftlb is this correct and does this look to be correctly installed?

I dont think so.....There is a metal sleve preinstalled in the axel end and then the tapered bolt goes through the drag link end like i have it. I may be wrong but all the pictures i have seen have it the way I have it as well as the same way my stock one came off.

It must have been the angle in the other pic. It looked like the smaller side was on the right. You've got it on there correct though.

Installed my 3/4" spacer up front today to level things out. It was 19" to the rocker panel in the front and 20.25" to the rocker panel in the rear.Now i have 19.75" in the front so i am only about 1/2" off now but it is unnoticeable. So here is a before and after pictures so far.
before

after with 3/4" spacer and 1.25 bl

Next to come will be the RE 4.5" superflex with 3.5" coils along with all adj ca and rear adj trackbar. Tires will be 33x12.5's...not sure on the brand yet but i have time i am saving for the lift right now.

In July I looked at hundreds of installed rear bumpers/swingouts, at the PA Jeeps show. No better place to shop... I walked through the show field and looked at the bolt-ons and custom jobs. I was set on LOD until I touched one, shook the spare, it rattled too much for me, so I decided to drop that from my list. Looked at A-Z, good stuff, finally settled with a custom unit from Cassidy... not on his website, but he has some of his units shown there:

http://www.cassidyscustom.com/tirecarriers.html

As it turns out, I bought my front bumper and rock rails from him too.
Definitely worth a look if you'rexstill shopping...

I will have to look into those. Do you think that the LOD bump stops for the tire carrier were not adjust correctly causing it to "rattled too much"?
