Asking for help (again)

OK guys, here's the list of stuff I've done already in this thread:
https://jkowners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=42085

I'm about to put in my next order with RCO, but I want to run it by the more knowledgeable to get your opinions before I let go of my money (which is damn hard to come by. Here's the list:

-Bilstein steering stabilizer (do I need any relocation brackets or clamps?)
-Rock Krawler tie rod
-R-se front outer sleeve
-Rear axle truss (who makes a good one)
-Cover kings
-Spiderweb shade (tired of getting burned up)
-Extended brake lines (is there any harm in going with longer so I have room to grow? trying to decide between the 3-4" or the 5-7")
-also going to try my hand at cutting my fenders

So is there anything you guys would change or add? I still need to regear, but that's going to be the next round. Thanks in advance

I would go ahead and relocate. It's a simple install and the additional clearance is nice

I used the 3-4" on my 2.5" lift and man there is enough to go another 2+ inches easy. All i can say is that with what I have now (say 2" too much) they are in a slight bind !!! Get the 3"-4" the 5-7" will piss u off !!!


The Project is moving forward.

I got the Teraflex steering stabilizer based on Marcus' recommendation. The Bilstein is a positive pressure tube so it tend to push the steering on the high way. Teraflex is tougher than OEM but the same style, resistance in both directions.

The brake line relocators I got from Marcus are good for up to 4" lift.

Marcus is a stand up guy. I spent between $5K and $6K with him this year doing my build.
He shipped my tires straight to East Coast Gear Supply in Raleigh where I had my 5.13 gears done.

The only thing I see wrong is the "ship-to" address. Marcus knows where to send it!

I've heard good things about Chase at ECGS...were their prices pretty good?
