I see in your write up the the shock reservoir is mounted to the frame, how I personally like it also, but from the pics it looks like your particular location you may get some tire interference, or is that just how it looks in the pics.
BTW great write up.

ohhh, not my write up....this is the Edmunds.com site (think it might be the site owner actually) write up done in 2012....wasn't posted here and is a pretty good accounting of most of the steps.

Guess I should have put that in the original post as I'm not trying to take credit for this for sure!!!

Can you use stock sahara 18's with this kit? I think the kit requires some backspacing so I'm not sure...thanks!

In response to nitrz680's question......what makes this stage three kit not allow the use of factory wheels and tires? Are there new control arms involved that will interfere with the factory wheels and tires? I know my Stage 2 kit I ran the factory wheels and tires for 7 months with no issues.

Correct, specifically I believe it's the rear lowers, but I never tried to fit my stocks to verify.
