What is pictured looks like plastic Bushwackers to me. If you wheel, I'd steer clear of those.

If you are truly limited by a garage height, and you can't afford even .5 or 1" more, then you might want to think about just doing a spacer instead. When you put a spacer on top of a spring, you...

After modifying a suspension, you should always recheck torque on everything you touched after 500 miles or so. The timing of your noise is interesting considering you just installed all that stuff...

The best way I've found to turn that light off, almost entirely, is add larger tires and low gearing. 37s and 5.13s paired with the 3.6L seemed to do the trick for me. :crazyeyes:

Todd, you're best bet is going to be sticking with a factory top, and keeping an eye either on FB or CL here in the metroplex. You're not going to see many aftermarket hard tops out there as they're...

This right here is why I never understand why people even consider fixed length arms.

I agree with both above. Go Mopar and dilute the coolant yourself. I bought a cheap OSC radiator. I used OSC in my wife's Armada and have been happy, but I've always questioned the OSC in my JK. ...

Hopefully they help you out. For a different vehicle that I purchased with only one key, I had bought a couple extra "chipped" keys/fobs on eBay. I then went down to a locksmith and tried to have...

Yup, 125 ft lbs. I'd guestimate that with 2.5" lift, your caster dropped from 4.2* down to the 3.4-3.5* range. If you confirm torque on that TB is correct, you might want to consider a means of...

You're mainly wanting gearing for on-road manners and you're not wheelin hard? I don't think there's anything wrong with regearing a D30 if you're mainly on-road and/or running light trails. If...

I can't help with direct experience on the weight difference, but how can it be cheaper to buy a crated rubi axle vs. regearing. Regearing is usually $1500+/- in most parts of the country, course...

I'd say Barricade would be more along the lines of Smittybilt and the like. It's not high end like PSC, EVO, Metalcoak, GenRight, but it might suit your purpose for sliders if you're not out using...

Is there some reason you think your control arms may be damaged? I personally wouldn't buy new factory arms (or Crowns). You should be able to find a cheap set of practically new take off arms from...

+1 to everything nthinuf said above. No reason at all to have a full set of arms at that height. It's overkill. I'd get either adjustable arms or control arm brackets over fixed length. Jeep builds...

There's not much they can do in regards to aligning what you have. They can set toe and re-center the steering wheel for you. It's good to have the alignment specs anyhow though so you can see what...

Factory set up still or lifted with larger tires? Even half decent BJs aren't cheap. If you're running 35s, or plan to move to a 35, Teraflex is probably your best bet on the mid-tear BJs....and by...
