Default 2012 JKUR build -tons and stuff

Awesome forum folks ,figured I’d share my build so far.Started with a used 2012 street Jeep owned by two professional college students,family worked for Jeep and they bought under family plan,they thought the “Rubicon” was just a sticker on the hood and freaked out when I hit the locker and sway bar buttons and th slights on the dash started flashing .
the Jeep had 33’s on it and all stock.Now 7 months later we are on tons and 40’s
I decided on the UD60’s with the e-lockers and 5.38’s,beefed up all the weak spots everyone talked about and installed a ram assist also.Suspension consists of 3.25”lift and a long arm setup front and rear.Quite a bit of armor underneath and a lot of clearancing to clear theses
tires.Going LCG is not easy but has been rewarding so far.Street manners are incredible and offroad it’s been awesome as well .No white knuckles so far.

Typically you run the misalignment joint on the axle end and the bushing on the frame side. Is this a kit or a custom long arm?

How do you like that Lock N' Load radius arm setup? I just installed that same front setup on my JK, still waiting on a driveshaft before I can drive it to test it out. I was really hesitant on it, but i've not heard a bad thing from anyone who had one on a TJ.
