NYGLT56 what CA's did you go with? I messed up the factory front LCA's trying to change bushings! So I bought a set of LCA's rom Fat Bob's Garage. They should be here today. Still waiting on my JKS trackbar as well. Oh and I dont know if your still in Rio Rancho but the next time Im out at Kirtland I'll have to meet up with you!

Yeah man! I went with teraflex in the front upper and lower. And rc uppers and lowers on the rear. Theyre not bad. Ride quality is great flex is good. But if you have the money to. Savvy/currie jjs for sure are a must

Great looking rig btw. Your pic just made me feel better about my coils. I plan on looking into upgrading my CA's as well; is this something you should do both front and back at the same time, or would just front be a decent improvement? I don't wheel too much so great flex all around isn't a must for now. Also, what shocks are you running w/ your lift?

Anyone running the rc 2.5 with an 8.8 rear? Getting ready to install mine and I'm thinking I will need the rear track arm bracket since the 8.8 is already narrower than the d35.

You could do the trackbar bracket you may also want to pick up a spacer for the front as the 8.8 rear lifts the rear half to 3/4 of a inch.

Thanks man! I ran front CAs for awhile haha maybe 5k miles or so. Wasn't bad. was short on cash and snapped my stock ones so I needed them quick. They performed really well, and still do or it would be fine. Im currently running a 10" procomp in the front, with 3" of uptravel and 7" down. and the RC 2.2s in the rear.

Just placed my order over the phone. Got the 3.75 combo lift with the MML and SS. I transferred money from my savings to my checking to make the purchase (im 16) but the transaction must have been too recent for all the funds to be available. Regardless, it was only allowing my to account to transfer $481 when I needed to transfer $491. The guy on the phone dint even make an issue of it, just told me that was ridiculous and he would take care of it for me. Can't ask for better costumer service than that! It's truly awesome to see a company willing to do that (in addition to the 10% jeep forum discount). Now i can only hope it gets here by Friday so i have all break to decide when i wanna work on it!
