Nice (Have the same color on order) How was the install and did you end up using the Cam bolts or did you opt to use adjustable control arms...BTW how is the ride on highway/streets...Thanks...

The install wasn't bad at all really...took me awhile but I was multi-tasking and kinda drug down by some drugs from some dental work the day before! I didn't use the cam bolts or adj control arms. I was gonna use the cam bolst if necessary but figured I'd check it out without em' first. The ride is great, got rid of the rocking that would splash a drink all over the place but still rides good over bumps and whatnot.

Hey, looks good! Did you use the 3" econo lift if not then which one? I'm planning pretty much the same route and with 35's on stock 18" wheels (Sahara).

Yeah it was the basic kit....springs, shocks, adj frnt trac bar, rear trac bar bracket, brakeline brackets, etc...
I'd recommend doing this lift for sure! I drive 60mi round trip to/from work and I'm definitely satisfied...firmed it up in all the right situations but still retained an overall smooth ride! Very impressed!

which shocks did you go with? i'm probably going to go with this lift too since there's no way i can afford the PP kit. just wondering which shocks to go with. where did you get the lift from?

Thanks 08unlimtdx. That's the one I was hoping it'd be. Glad to hear it worked out well.

I have the Basic Black Diamond AT shocks on mine and I really like them. I think he had to get some different ones because one set of the BD's were not in stock.
