anyone tried the clayton stretch kit or a custom stretch setup

how did you like it, hard install? website doesnt provide any info on intstall. im trying decide if i want to get it or try something custom, and to those that tried something different what did you do.

And what major mods are required for it, i know fender and frame modification, relocate gas tank, suspension(obviously) , lengthen driveshaft. Any other major things im missing?

i have a bunch of people who run the clayton kits.there well worth the money the only good part is were only a few hours away so he welded it all in. but as for a streach the tank has to be moved and new driveshaft. like you said probably shock mounting

The Nth Stretch kit is amazing. One of the owners of a local shop is putting it on his TJ. they tried to convince me to buy one for mine (good buddy is the other owner) but I went with the standard clayton arms instead.

The Nth kit comes with everything you would possibly need well that's waht they say. 40+ hours for a shop to install.

Here's a link to a current JF stretch
