I have the LoD setup, and it's on it's second TJ! I kept it when I sold the TJ and it's working great on my LJ. It's a solid choice!:tea:

Maybe their coils are better than their leaf springs.:confused: All I know is mine works fine, and several others in our club run TJs with them and have no issues.

You have to mark the new one the same as the old one to make sure it gets to the right spot. Are you talking about doing the TDC method?

I have a RC lift on my LJ, and it works fine. I didn't see a huge difference in the ride between it and my old TJ with the RE lift. No problems here!

I just did mine a couple weeks ago. It's not that bad if you have small hands. Getting that hold-down bolt back in IS the toughest part.

Mine is right at 177" equipped like you asked. I have a set of LoD bumpers/winch plate/tire carrier.

I replaced mine today with a Fog'd unit that Willy did for me. My old one was actually in great shape and spun as easily as the new one. The gear shows very little wear for having ~79K miles IMO....
