Rear leaf spring conversion and RE 5.5" long arm kit (front)

I just put leaf springs on the rear of my TJ and it rides 100 times better, then rear coils(I had RE 4.5" coils). All the lifted problems that the TJ's have are GONE! I used a 99 toyota taco rear axle with E-locker, 5" all pro toyota leafs(front toyota leafs), M.O.R.E shackles, and used all pro hangers. I also did RE 5.5" long arm kit coils in the front. I am sitting at about 96" wheel base and was at 92". With the long arm and the rear leafs it rides great and would do it again. As of right now I don't have the e-brake hooked up, E-locker, or the adapter for the spare.

Looks great man. Did you do an SOA conversion? Is the road ride better?

Are you going to change the front bolt pattern to match the rear? I would like to know how you installed the e-locker switch too. More pics would be sweet too.

I am using an adapater until I change the front end out. I don't have the E-locker hooked up yet.
