do i have to sye... that adds so much money onto it
i heard that a kit, rubicon express, is around 300 for new, thick spring mounts and all the other little goodies involved in it, but the bare minimum for a sye is like 360 something with new drive shaft and all...bummer i need money, send me some, i am starting a donation pot,
there is a raffle prize for the winner ( or highest donater). they get ....my lucky boots, and an old pair of chuck talors, and possibly a 1963 Yamaha motorcycle!!! lol

d rings are fine, or hooks. i don't think it matters where as long as they're bolted to the frame or bumper that is bolted to frame
