My wife and I have a "don't ask, don't tell" policy in force when it comes to the Jeep right now... we'll see how long that lasts!

yup, I was thinking of the trackbar then. couldn't remember which, just knew that you could get rid of one of them. Could you run something like an Nth stinger with one of these?

What is the advantage of this over the standard LA kit? I just installed the LA kit, but after looking at these pictures, wondering if I should have upgraded.

Looks great SW2! Your rig is turning out sharp.
When are you going to test it out off road?

I just did a 5.5", same system. I'm sure you had an alignment shop go through it, if not, make sure you do. Also, the front end looks like it has some rake to it... same with mine. Does anyone know why they do this with the RE lifts?

To me, the Rake is pretty minor if at all.... I also added a new winch, and sitting on my level garage floor, I don't really notice anything at all... at least not enough to make we worry about spacers, espeically if things will "settle" over time.

My previous TJ had no lift or aftermarket bumper and it sat level. My LJ sat level on stock susp until I added the winch and aftermarket bumper. When I added the lift it still sits a tad lower in front.
Honestly I dont think it sags in front anymore now that I have the aftermarket rear carrier on the back.

Wow, a two year old thread!

We're still happy with ours at the three year mark.

No real complaints...I'm still not, nor will probably ever be a fan of the Front Track Bar Drop Bracket and Drop Pitman arm that comes with the kit. I just don't care for how far it hangs down, and I've had to redo the axle side bushing already once.

I'm also going to be SOL if I ever wanted to try to drop some of the weight from the Belly Pan area with a light weight aluminum belly pan (like with something from Blaine and Gerald @ Savvy ) since the RE Brackets and Belly pan are pretty much integrated. I'd guess my Engine Skid (Jeep Medic) and Belly pan are 100+ lbs and not only a total pain in the butt to drop, but heavy as all get out.

So from that standpoint, If I were to do it again now a couple years later, I might go a different direction, but I can't complain about the performance of the kit... I'm not sure that Johnny Joints on the ends of the arms wouldn't be preferable, but...
