I want to now do some changes. Im not really satisfied with the suspension.

1. PR44 Unlimited Front Axle
2. EVO adj LA kit
3. EVO Bolt on Coilovers front and rear
4. regear to 4:56 or 4:88
5. King bumpstops
6: armor up the rear corners
7. Upgrade rear axle housing and shafts. Not sure what to do there yet.
8. ARB front and rear

I cannot afford to do all of this at once, so Im trying to figure out how to do this in pieces. I kinda screwed up by getting the RCVs and Reids for my current axle. I originally thought I would be able to use the RCVs and the REIDs with the PR 44. Misinformed, so now Im hoping to recover some of the cost mistake when I sell the current front axle.

Stay tuned!

What's your impression of the JKS sector shaft brace? Hydraulic steering would be a long ways away for me and I'm looking to beef up the stock steering box.

Well, its kinda one of those "install and forget" items. Was easy to do the install. Just have a couple places to do a small weld. I dont notice any performance improvement, and this is one of those "prevention" type of things to do. Pay attention to the brand of components that wont work with this mod.. My JK 2 door rubi has a 4 inch lift. I have the JKS adj trackbar and an EVO drag link flip kit. I also am running the Synergy HD tie rod and the Fox ATS steering stabilizer on top of the tie rod. Ive not seen any interference issues. My guess is the cross shaft is what causes the clearance issues with the other brands of components.

Good luck with your build.
