So I'm putting a lift kit on my tj today and so far we have broken 1 pitman arm puller lets see how many more need to be sacrificed for the greater good

That looks like the 15 dollar unit from autozone. I have bent everyone cheapo Ive purchased. If you buy a pitman arm puller do not go cheap. Spend the money for snap on, proto, or mac tools. They are better built and will last longer.

Pitman arms do suck, very bad. I had to put a new steering box on my TJ, and the auto hobby shop on base didn't have a puller(it grew legs and walked off), so we had to use a hydraulic press to get the pitman arm off..took 4 hours to change out the steering box.
