ARB locked high pinion 30, Detroit locked 33 spline super 44 rear. 4:56 gears, 2" RC lift with JKS Acos spacer in the front , 1" body lift, RE adjustable control arms both ends, Procomp MX6 shocks, JKS track bars, stock bumpstops, Currie steering, Antirock swaybar, 4.0 5spd with Hurst shifter, 1" motormount lift, Highrock front bumper with Warn 8000lb winch, Procomp rear bumper


1997 Black Cherokee. RE 4.5" lift 33X12.50X17 Mickey Thompson MTZs. ARB locked 30 front. Detroit locked 8.25 rear. 8000lb Warn. 4.0 auto. 4:56 gears. JKS ACOS spacers, Currie steering, Currie anti rock sway bar, Raised & trimed fender flares, JKS stops, 231 Transfer case with H&T and RE drive shaft. RE control arm drop brackets, Warn sliders etc etc

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
