Think 1910 Colt 44 mag single shot revolver black/blue it's almost a mix of those 2 pieces BUT apparently not possible.

I should draw up my idea for a tire carrier storage and can holder... If doable (although it would cost north of a grand probably) would just be BAD ***!!! Think Iron Cross meets WWII utility!!
I found that when looking for a cool example. I have seen that as blue steel before irl, and it is sweet.

That is solid

Ok, so that is the 4 inch lift off your site, The rails back quarters and front bumper? Short of I would run 33's rather than 35's for more stuff actually I want to run 34 10.50 TSL's because they are just EYE grabbing (and they grab other stuff well too)

Black chrome the grill (or deep gunmetal it)

why is everything SO DAMN OVER PRICED!!

when you don't have money......

I'd be more interested in Savvy Hi lift hood mount (lighter weight would be nice and easy to make) and Rear bumper with tire carrier!

The Sway bar and Anti Rock industry needs to own up and make an electronic disconnect option for aftermarket purposes.. It really wouldn't be incredibly difficult.

bump for feedback on the parts list again

Why? Do you want power door locks and windows too?

Reconnecting under a muddy jeep isn't as fun as clicking a switch? Even a manual disconnect which mechanically I think would be fairly simple placed in the center of the sway bar.. In my opinion for people that have a harder time bending over or getting underneath a jeep to connect and disconnect would market well.

PS it's already available to install power door locks and windows

ORO SwayLok sells an air actuated front sway bar system. Flip of a switch and you can disco. Check it.

Welcome to Off Road Only!

Oh, btw, it doesn't work well in mud....gets clogged.

You do realize that you don't have to get under the jeep to disconnect the AR or Swayloc right? And yes, I know they're available--won't be buying those products.

Any update on the axles. Are you going to keep it JK width or make it TJ width. I am guessing that you are going to go custom steering and ditch the Currie HD steering system?

I am very interested in this…
Do you and Blaine have something in the works for upgrading the JK brakes? I currently have a JK axle under my LJ and would like to have some better braking options. The Reid knuckles and stock knuckles have the same caliper mounts.

I know there are other retailers that sell a kit that used full size Dodge Ram calipers and rotors but I don’t know how much of an improvement they are over stock JK brakes.

The Anti Rock yes but it's not a true disconnect and depending on how you want the road manners... Not a CURE all. I'm not saying this is a priority to me I just think a simple cheap product would sell well. PS for Imped I had not investigated the swayloc manual disconnects before so that was enlightening. But your right at 700 dollars that's not something i'll be getting either.


To make the question even easier... What suspension parts list is on that LJ!!! and how well do those coils twist? That looks like a pretty Heavy Duty coil is that what comes in your 4" kit? And are you running any sway bar in the rear?
