2011 Rubi getting some new curtains

Well today I started installing my Rock Krawler 3.5 X Factor lift which I got from the friendly folks over at WS Offroad.

Opened up the boxes and immediately impressed with the quality of the parts and completeness of the kit. Makes the stock bits look like toys.

Tonight we were able to get the front end disassembled. Installed Lower and Upper control arms, track bar and springs. Had to call it a night for some .

Should have the rest of it completed tomorrow afternoon.

Going to be assembling some new shoes, the Rock Monsters and KM2's as well.

Sure wish some of the missing pieces had shipped this week.

Thanks again Anthony for all your help.

Cant wait to see completed product, along with how it flex's and wheels. Not sure which RK 3.5 I will be getting in the next few months. The 19/60 springs and 1 3/4 rear and 2" front spacers need to go. I want some real flex and durability.

Sorry guys, been working trying to get this done before Monday so been tardy on the pics. I will see if I can get some up tonight, heading out to the shop after mother's day dinner for a few more hours.

Anyone know if there are spacers used when installing the upper front control arms? The instructions mentioned a spacer but I don't have one nor can I find reference to one in the parts list.

Never thought I would drill so many holes in a jeep with less than 2000 miles on it.

Still in the bay as of 1am last night. Had to leave you with pics from the garage.

Need to find a place to get it aligned now.

Anyone have suggestions on brake line routing? I'm not feeling the dangling. Thinking about making a bracket for the front similar to stock and perhaps zip tie the rear to the shock body.
