that artec industries w tj swap is awesome. just put it in mine. well built and fairly easy to install. they put alot of thoght into it.
only thing i would suggest is mount everything like explained, except the shock mounts. i mounted mine where they said, and the shock was too close to the rear. maybe due to the lift?? i had to cut back off and move upwards. if i do it again i will leave those brackets off untill bolt up of rear. bolt the shock in the bracket, and place it where i feel comfortable
imwill definitelly suggest this kit to anyone looking to do the swap!!! and the prce is right to!!
