I took the Sergeant Major out for a little exorcise today...Nothing to rigorous...Just a nice little trip to the mountain lake for some fresh air!

Your driver side tail light looks like it sits farther outside than the passenger one... or is it the angle of the photos?

Looks like the reflection off the paint. They look even to me.

That's interesting being that they had it in stock when you ordered it.

Even if it is on back order.. I ordered it from them because they told me they have it in stock and it will ship by friday the same week.. 7/23/07.. If they said no they dont have it i would have probably ordered other lift.. just a lie after lie man.. now i cant get my money back because they sent me the shocks so i gotta pay for shipping to return them..

nice setup. And I don't say that very often. Can you describe the lift characteristics to me a little more? Like ride quality, does it lean in corners, and stuff like that?

I can tell you that the ride quality is great, does not lean into corners at all, but then again, I am not drifting the Jeep. I also have a 1 inch body lift and MML and love the set up. When I put the kit on with the 1 inch body lift and 33 inch tire i ended up getting a total of 9 inches of lift measureing from the rocker guard to the ground. The Disconnects that come with the kit are OK, they are not great, but I have seen worse. I would suggest spraying a little white lithium grease around the pin to help with disconnecting and reconnecting.

That is just my .02

Thanks for the compliment MR. CLIFFORD. I can say that it leans a bit more in the corners than stock but I think that is mainly a function of the increased height. The ride is good but stiffer than stock but by no means harsh. Some of the ride stiffness I'm sure is from the change in tires from BFG Long Trails to Cooper STT's. I did the alignment myself afterwards and it tracks perfect. You can let fo of the steering wheel at 70mph and it is straight as an arrow. It feels like a lifted Jeep or how a Jeep should be.

I haven't got to take it to the trail yet. So that jury is still out.
