The install was pretty strait forward you will spend majority of your time cutting stock mounts off and making them look good. If you have a car lift then it will be much smoother of a process than laying under it cutting and grinding and much easier on your t shirts. with the exception of having to modify the rear truss to work with my 60 rear it took a full day to do with a couple buddies. Oh and I do recomend relocating the rear track bar fram mount a few inches farther back once the kit moves your axle back a full inch depending on your axle like mine it hits my diff on the 60 and is crooked. Oh and I do gotta talk to RK about this they sent me the instructions for a yj/xj not my jk so lucky I had them email me a set before hand so I coul take care of any exhaust mods before hand or I would have been SOL for the weekend of the install.

Nick, the easiest thing is to order the truss built specifically for your currie(from currie). That's what I did with my CRD60 and it worked out great, all I had to do was weld a control arm mount on to the top of the truss. Then you can always sell your RK truss to someone else.

Hey, don't overflex those springs, wait for a set of coil-overs.

hard to really show you with a pic now that its already welded on the axle. but its minor trimming nothing you couldnt handle with the right tools and a few :beer::beer:.. the truss fits the axle tubes snug so that is no problem you gotta notch the bottom driver rear side of the truss to clear the existing track bar axle mount takes less than a minute with a cutting wheel or plasma the real in depth part is the two inner cutouts for the tubes have to be cut out more to clear the edges of the center section since the rock jock is shaped that way. the only other thing I have yet to check on is to make sure I can get my diff cover off if I ever need to. I don't see it being a problem but I havent tried yet.

I didn't loose ground I actually went a foot farther up than that mark but that was max so i backed down to make it more stable while i was crawling around/under it to make sure everything was clearing and no rubbing issuse

It was cheap (like 48 bucks or something, I'll check currie's price, but theirs was very similar).
Here is a pic of the one teraflex sent me installed, I'll upload a better(on sawhorses) picture off my old phone when I get home.


edit: Here is Currie's it's more expensive than Tera's was... but might be able to get a better price from a vendor.

What length shocks & coils do you have? It'll be interesting to see if you gain anything with coilovers!
