First I heard of using bar pin eliminators on a JK

but I'm no expert. Adjustable track bar, I can see that.

Now I need more stuff if I go for 35's, LOL. Those axle seals look like they would be very useful.

You should contact Chris at Jeep Add-ons or Truck ad ons (vendor here) and see about the axle tube sleeve kit and inner c-gusset kit with lower control arm skids. Seems like a good deal to me.

JeepAddOns.com - Nitro Gear & Axle

Now to make up my mind on doing all this to my rig, or waiting and doing it to the JKU I'm buying the wife next year.

Ahh.

The "bar pin" goes trough a bushing and must be removed to use the BPE.

. Jk's only use a bar pin in the rear up top.

No, that is proper orientation for a JK.

Should also note I know 2 guys with 35's and 2.5" BB's. Both use the shock extensions and have had no issues. One RC kit, the other Teraflex. I suppose a little extra insurance can't hurt, especially if you play on the rocks a lot.

Nice rig, btw Bob

Can't wait to see some pics of your rig with Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn.

Hope the Gecko's don't gang up on the Silver rig, but would be a cool pic.

The 1st pic confused me, I was thinking I was looking at a quick disco of some sort.

The pic the OP posted on page 1 has me confused. I understand the purpose of the bar pin eliminator but it doesn't "extend" the shock. To me it isn't the same as a shock extender.

It isnt a substitute for a shock extender, but technically it does give that extra extension. Its intended use is to eliminate the frequently noisy bar pins and give a more secure fitment. Each to there own.

I got that. The link that kjeeper10 provided shows the extender/bar pin eliminator as one. Looks like the best of both worlds. But the OP posted a pic of a BPE that provides a very modest shock extension of maybe 1/2".
Just wondering if the OP ordered these thinking they also extend?

Not thinking about extensions with the pin eliminators, just a stronger connection.

Pics aren't reading on my phone, so gonna have to reboot. But I do have pics of the poison ivy... stay tuned.

With 2.5 you would not want to lose shock travel or worse, bottom out if that's possible.

Bob you'd be surprised at the shocks pave put in Harley and how good his ride is. Theyre just the desert rattlers from desert rat. Actually ticks me off bc mine are more expensive.

I think it was kj though that highly recommended the rancho 9000's. Gonna try those as soon as the wallet can afford another round of upgrades. Skid plates are next on our priority list though. He's afraid we're gonna knock a hole in an oil pan next time we do something like chimney rock again.

(my fight with the parking lot sign yesterday morning may or may not have caused the oil pan scare.). Lol
