    Correct. The Enforcer kit comes with adjustable front lowers and really, they are all that you need. If you get a new rear drive shaft, you will need adjustable rear upper arms as well and you can get them as needed. The 9000 shocks are nice as they are adjustable but, when I ran them, I found it to be a pain to have to adjust them for pavement and when I went off road. I mean, it's cool that you can do it and if you had an in cab controller, it'd be real nice but, I have found their 7000 monotubes to be a great all around shock that performs quite well.

    alright thanks for all this help by the way, hates be a pain but ill be getting that jeep rubicon unlimited soon as i get back from my course (next month) and i wanna lift it and start my build almost soon as i get it.

    so this should be last thing i need to know untill i get the jeep than ill have couple more questions id say when installing it. if i cant figure them out from this form already which i say i can.

    - when i buy the enforcer kit everything comes with it and is bolt on ?
    -is there any cutting/welding or do the stock brackets work?
    -ill get the 7000 monotubes i know they are simple to install only like 2 bolts?
    -i need to get a new front drive shaft(which is best i will be getting 37s later)? the rear drive shaft is fine for 36s right?
    -and i should be able to do this instal by myself with most basic tools(will have a friend help)?
    -is there anything else i will need?

    No welding but you will need to cut part of your stock rear trackbar bracket to install the EVO rear trackbar bracket.

    Shocks will be the easiest to install. With the exception of having patience to install the drivers side front upper bolts, its pretty straight forward.

    You should be fine with a new front DS. Do yourself a favor and spend the extra coin to get the 1350 first off.

    Basic tools will do, but tall jack stands, a good jack, a grinder and an impact wrench will make the install go alot smoother.

    That should be about it. I do really recommend the Drag link flip kit. It will help correct your steering geometry and raise your front sway bar link mounts about 3". For this you will need a 13/16 drill bit to drill into your steering knuckle.

    Honestly, I would contact Off Road Evolution as they should be able to help you out the best even if it means recommending you to a retailer in Canada.

    HUGE thanks to this guy and kitty, and not only did he take it for a spin but he drove it first after it was all done. will be starting a thread and adding pictures. I brought wine and had a day of it. CrawlerKitty and even little panda (panda's daughter) helped out, looks like she is a growing jeeper and likes to turn a wrench as well!

    just still looking around for few lift options i see this clayton lift http://www.northridge4x4.ca/shop/cla...ft-kit-2908050 looks like it has pretty much everything for the lift other than the shocks and drive shafts anyone have any experience with this lift or anything else that needs go with it, seems to be just 100% bolt on even with factory mounts if i am understanding correctly, just a little bit of grinding on front and no welding at all, any thoughts or opinions would be great thanks

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
