Today's the day!

Hopefully by the end of the day, I will be lifted and my 37's can go on - at least for street driving!

Decided on:
JKS Track Bars front and rear
JKS adjustable bumpstops
JKS Quicker Disconnects
OME Coils & Nitrocharger Sport shocks* (the shocks are on backorder, so I am still waiting on those)
Rubicon Express brake lines
Clayton rear upper & lower control arms

Previously installed:
MetalCloak Fenders
Artec Truss & Armor Kit
LOD front & rear Signature Shorty Bumpers

Here is a starting pic with a 37 on the front, no lift and stock on the rear:

does anyone know the stock ride height measured from the bumpstop pad to the cup for a rubicon? I forgot to measure that before I broke it all down.

Love the m/t locks. Wish they weren't so expensive. And that is definitely an awesome picture. Good luck!

so if you all liked that first pic, take a look at it from the front!


All joking aside, here is the new stance:



I still have a few things to finish up, but I'm also still waiting on my extended shocks, so no big rush. I do have a question though. On the 2011 with stock driveshafts, should the pinions be parallel to the transfer case or aligned with the shaft? I was thinking it should be aligned with the shaft, but I have gotten confused along the way.

In other words, do I make them look like this:

or this:
