All 7/8" thread tie rod ends with boots are included as well as the Currie heavy duty steering stabilizer bracket. This unit is a direct replacement for the stock parts. No modifications or machining to any part of the vehicle is necessary. This unit is rated at 200% stronger than the stock components. NOTE: This unit is designed to be used on vehicles with 4" of lift. It can be used on vehicles with less lift, but the vehicle must have a minimum of a 2" bump stop (over stock). Also, on vehicles with no lift, 2 of the tie rod ends may need be trimmed to achieve proper adjustment.

Not to mention that if you are in danger of over traveling the TRE at the pitman from a low lift and too much uptravel, it's a simple matter to put it in a press and take some of the bend out of it. We used to do the opposite for the XJ crowd on the first and second Gen stuff.

Took it out in the snow. First I towed a stranded couple back to their house, with RPD blocking the major roads for me. Then I took it out to play with some club members. Had a blast.

Tossed a pair of the Polk DB651s into the sound bar to compliment the new head unit. And by tossed I mean laid on my back with neck torqued at awkward angles, stressed out my dislocated shoulders, cursed at multiple failures and finally cracked a grill while finnaglin' with the last of 4 screws. Got em' in, but they don't slip right in as many have said.

Luckily I added poly-fil on my first attempt, cause there won't be any more. Found it to be a wee bit easier to do the install form the rear of the jeep. Sound bar removal would have made it easier, but not taking the top off in these temps.

Sounds is solid and definitely improved.

I had to trim the edges of the speakers like so, oh and the covers that came with them dont even some close to fitting.

Took it out to play a little. It was funny to watch the guys in the front wheel drive cars spinning out.

Coming from someone who's done their entire dash/doors/console:

1. Make sure you prep very well
2. Sem holds up better than the duplicolor stuff in my experience
3. Prep, prep, prep
4. A clear coat of some sort is highly, highly recommended for longevity
5. Prep
6. Did I mention it's mostly about the prep work?....everything must be CLEAN & use a good adhesion promoter

...7. Prep...

Ordered some from Amazon. What exactly needs to be done to prep it correctly?

Replaced the old chrome headlight bezels with these black ones. Inexpensive upgrade but, makes a huge difference I think!
