    I installed the rear install this weekend. One box from the front kit was delayed from ups, I'll work on the front next week.

    All in all, it looks like a well thought out kit. There were only a few minor tweaks I did to make everything fit to my satisfaction; e.g., cut a relief where the factor rear track bar was hitting the mount, I also added some hardened washers to reduce deformation at the u-bolt brackets. I have an '07, so I completely removed the body mounts at the upper support bracket and installed grade 8 hardware. The lower shock spacers were not finished prior to coating. They looked rough cut, were not de-burred and were oversize by .020-.030", so I ground them to fit temporarily.

    Here is how it sits today. There weren't any instructions on routing the brake lines, but it seemed logical to straighten the lines and go through the frame. I used some 3/8" fuel line I had laying around to provide vibration resistance and hide the sins. I still need to tighten everything, set the ride height, pull the bumpers, side steps and cut the fenders. I like having more room out back, so I am going to pull the factory exhaust and mount a muffler forward the axle.

    Also have another question; has anyone fabricated their own control arms with straight DOM or 7075? I have some 2" and 1.5" x .250 wall laying around and thought I might outfit them with some narrow JJ's, but wasn't sure how much offset I would need.

    Thanks for the heads up. It looks like both of them were shipped that way from king.

About us
“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.
