Full Traction Lift, Spicer Drive Shafts, Bilstein Shocks, and some skids...

Finally got some (crummy - sorry) snapshots of the new stuff. I'm super happy with the FullTraction 3" Premium Plus Lift, also, Bilstein 5100's, front and rear drive shafts, and skid plates (powder coated). It works for me Now I can't wait to get out off the pavement...

The ride is so great. No tip (as before) accelerating around turns... rock steady, firm, but comfortable.

I know the skid covers the *other* oil pan pro I put on, but I just chalk that up to experience. I hadn't intended to lift... but when I got all the steel on it I have, and then loaded up (gas/water/gear etc...) I lost about an inch of clearance from stock... and the break-over point for me was waaaaay too low. Entry and exit were still fairly do-able, but because of the added length (4 door) my break- over was ridiculous. Kind of glad though, 'cause the new lift gives me much better springs/shocks and now dis-connects... much better ride/handling... etc...

The folks at FullTraction are simply the best to deal with. Their product is solid, hard parts guaranteed for life - Thanks you guys!

Awesome! I can't wait to install mine...still waiting on backordered tires.

The wait gives me a chance to see how the stock ride handles, so I'll be more aware of the difference.

Your Jeep looks great!

Thanks kbwwolf. Be sure to push it hard around turns before and after.... you'll be amazed at the control you gain.

Four Flusher... bet you are excited. I know I sure was... The drive shafts are Spicer brand. Here's a link. Thanks!

Very sweet!! Love the rack and the rest of the mods. Do yourself a favor and just cut those black rubber boots right off those shocks. You honestly dont need them and your shocks will last longer, and look better.

Keep up the great work and please keep posting pics!

Maybe its all my time in Africa, But I just think those Garvin Racks ad so much to a vehicle. That is still my favorite mod for both looks and function.
