RE1610 actually, and I think my lower mount is cracked a bit anyhow, so I'm thinking I probably need to cut it off and start over, so I'm not worried about drilling to accommodate the 7/16" bolt.

Removing the rear sway bar will do absolutely nothing for you. I drove with a rear sway bar for about a year, then during an axle swap the rear bolts broke off inside the new axle and I broke 2 drill bits and an easy out trying to remove them...so the last two years I have been rear swaybar-less. I have noticed NO gains in any aspect, nor have I noticed any adverse effects. I personally feel that the rear sway bar is a non-issue. That being said, I still plan on making a rear antirock purchase sometime soon.

Either will work for you in that case. The main thing is that they both have the new offset for more clearance, as opposed to the older CE-9120 design.

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.
is the caliper mount the same as WJ?
if so I have a solution in the works.

I can say with a high degree of certainty that we'll never develop a hi-lift mount on the hood.

First of all we don't like hi-lifts and second we don't like that mass right in front of our faces. I'm sure it works for other people but not us.

in the wrong hands and sometimes in the right hands hilifts can be far to dangerous. I use mine for pulling fence posts.

Fair enough... at the risk of sounding comletely intellectually challenged I just like the beefy Recovery kit with shovel look on the hood and or front bumper... Reminds me a little of the kit we carried on the HMMV's in the army Shovel axe rope..Between that and Cargo racks and Jerry can's and ammo cans a jeep just isn't complete

By the time you get that to the retail level, you're paying an additional 20 bucks per piece to advertise for them. A set of rock rails is costing 40 bucks or so.
Agreed! Before the Savvy front bumper came out, I was looking at the stubby Sniper Fab bumper... but I cannot stomach that huge laser cut name across the whole front of it!

I felt the same way. Sniper Fab made me one without the logo. They do some good work. I work in a corporate environment and showing up in a vehicle with the word sniper on it is a quick way to get on the wrong side of HR and corporate security.

I'd be interested in seeing a JK to TJ steering set up as well. Something with a straight tie rod.

Essentially it comes down to tube fenders doing more harm than good. They have said before that they do more hard than good when they take a hard hit, they mess stuff up.

This is what Blaine and or Gerald have said before.
