Your gonna love it! Made mine drive better than new and was a relatively easy install. Pick up a step bit that goes to 7/8 and you can drill the knuckle in like 20 seconds. A standard 7/8 bit wants to grab because the iron is so soft.

Thanks! Everyone I know who has changed out their track bar and did the drag link kit said it's steering handles like there is NO resistance in the wheel at all! I am looking forward to putting this on this weekend!

will do...plan is to put it on this weekend. My front end is about 1.5" off-center to the driver side right now so this will bring all back together! And have heard nothing but great things about this kit from Stub, PhilD, others on here, as well as some buddies here locally!

I hear yall....for 2 days I saw big brown driving around and in my neighborhood, seeing on the computer seeing my boxes were at the main UPS office about 5 miles from my house with no "out for delivery" updates. Then finally it said "new delivery date of Wednesday 23 Feb" after arriving their office on Saturday! But it's here and that's all that matter!

Got them installed with some help from vandegrift, bblustang90, chopperdoug, and D-Toy! The Jeep drives amazing now since changing out to the hi-steer kit, c-gussets, and adj track bar. Only issue now is that it drives as great as my wife's Armada and with the top off she keeps taking it wherever she needs to go....trying to figure out how to approach her of when do I get to drive it or when do I trade her Armada in on a Jeep for her!!

Big Brown just showed up with my rear Poly Performance adjustable track bar! Now I will be set and no longer crab walking the Jeep down the highway! Front end is straight now and centered with the first Poly shipment.

Thanks Jason at Krawl Off-Road for great customer service!

I am stoked about it! After putting on the hi-steer and front adj track bar from Poly, it rides awesome and easy to steer without feeling all the bumps like a tank....can't wait to get the back end re-centered as well!

Also got the smilin bob breather lines installed the way you suggested with the winch air compressor filter at the airbox end of the breather line.

After getting this installed, I only have 5 other things I really want to do:

1. Snorkel
2. 5.13 gears
3. Axle sleeves
4. Oil pan skid
5. Crown extended brake lines

will definitely need gears and sleeves....more than likely going 37s in the future (like a couple years down the road when these tires are worn out)!
