I think Skyjacker used them at one time as part of a full lift. As for as I know they are only made for XJs now.

The **** Cepek lift kit used them, a quick google came up with this which seems to deal them now:

Maybe contact them to see if you can get them separately.

Thanks ... Yea My Lower Control Arms Have A Little Much Of An Angle Issue And I Am Having A Clearance Issue With The Control Arm Hitting The Axle. Soon I Will Have A Long Arm Kit For The Front But Not Soon Enough. I Was Looking For A Quick Fix For Now. 10" Of Suspension Lift Is A Lil Much For A Short Arm Setup

What?
1. 10" of lift? WHAT size tires are you running?
2. 10" of lift?
3. 10" of lift and you haven't completely redesigned the suspension and replaced the axles?
4. how does the steering work?

Don't forget that WEAK D35 is only on a 10" lift. No LCOG here.
The guys in that link are good people.

10" on short arms?!?! That thing must ride like poop! And please tell me that D35 at least has a super 35 kit. I can't imagine what'd happen when you punch it in low range
