you can triangulate both uppers and lowers or you can do just the lowers.

I going to order in the next week or two but when you get the lift could you take some pics of all the parts and post them.

thanks.

May I ask what the total was? I think I'll order from them too because I get stuff from them in like two or three days. They are close to me.

Find an online vendor who you can trust and stick with them. Even if they don't always have the cheapest prices. There's something to be said for being able to pick up the phone and talk to the owner of the place you ordered from.

HTH

My thoughts EXACTLY!! And have someone that has complete experience with what they are selling you. Remember, you may find the cheapest price, but dont get angry when the 18 year old kid on the "tech" line cant tell you WHY you are having a problem with your purchase.

Even though I am not a fan of anything From Full traction, its leaps and bounds better than Rusty's. Way better. You'll be MUCH happier being "Rusty Free"

Haha thanks man I ordered FT lift since it comes with a track bar while rustys ends up being 460+shipping 70 bucks so the price is around 100 bucks difference..

for those 100 bucks i get a adjustable track bar, front ¿discos?, and extended brake brackets that rustys dont give.

I think you will be happy with the kit, I know I am. May I suggest that you get a 1" body lift and 1" motor mount lift as well. Then you are likely to not have vibes and will not have to drop your transfer case. If you need help installing the kit, just let me know. It took me and 5 friends about 9 hours to install the kit. May I recommend: COIL SPRING COMPRESSORS, makes things much easier.

You would be correct, the directions are less than adequate and that is what caused most of the confusion on my build. I used the directions off of http://www.4x4xplor.com/tj3inch.html to assist with figuring out what tools I would need and where the parts I received would go.
I would also suggest having a complete set of metric and standard sockets and wrenches. If I remember correctly there was not a common size thru out the whole build. Also if there is an auto parts store close by, that is a bonus.

Good luck with your build.
