It can be an option on any vehicle. Just depends on how much money you want to spend

That's the one! Oh, maybe you want the brand name? Well, you'll have to guess, it's black, with two bends in it, a heim joint on one end, and a bushing on the other.

JKS uses a Currie Johnny Joint with a 9/16" bolt. I always swap out my personal JKS track bars with the upgraded JJ and 5/8" bolt

The axle end is a factory rubber bushing.

Sorry we can't all be rich like you, it's a superlift product, since you had to know.

I'm not rich. I have 2 jeeps

Speaking of.....

I got quite a bit accomplished yesterday and today. It is nice when the weather is a bit warmer. Still a nice crisp 70 in the shop today.

I got my steering cooler hard mounted.


And my reservoir.


And the bracket I built for it.


Routing all the hoses really sucks. Don't touch this, bend this way, cut here, push locks are from the devil.

I also rewired my entire grill and now all my lights work and function as they should with about 5 pounds less of wires.






EDIT:I guess I didn't check my ISP.

You're a step ahead of me. I have cleaned the outside about 3 times and the inside of the windshield still has mud on it. It's hard to use that high pressure wand at the car wash on the inside of the windshield. Well... not hard, but not smart.

I installed some new rock light replacing the other ones
I cleaned my k&n air filter
ordered up another speedo gear to match my tires and gears
changed my oil and put in some more royal purple
washed it because I couldn't see out the back window any more from all the dust
buffed the side windows again to remove the desert pin stripe
