I am also keeping an eye on this thread....and would also love to see some pictures of this kit on a vehicle. Im skeptical seeing I own a Rubi that to the best of my knowledge can already run with 31x10.5. Wondering how much lift I would be gaining im sure not the entire 2.5. Thinking more around an inch or so.

Longer links would be ideal, but the stock links will work ok.

A t-case drop comes with the kit. You may need it, maybe not. All Jeeps are different when it comes to driveline vibrations.

You should still get around 2.5" of lift.

A Rubi does not have any lift compared to a stock TJ. You can run 31" tires on any stock TJ.

i plan on buying one within the next week or so, I will have it on in a couple days after I receive it. I will be running 33's on it, with a 1" body lift as well. I will take pics as soon as I have it installed, also during installation to let you know how easy or hard it was after all my bolts are probably rusted.
