What size did you go with? I ordered the 3.5" and should be in tomorrow. I'm crazy excited 👍

Yeah I'm unable to install mine until Wednesday because of a complete lack of tools on my part. So I have to have my mechanic do it. I'm pretty bummed

I might do the install tomorrow. Doing so means solo. I'll at least install my trailer wiring while the kids are in school. Got Tuesday off.

I should be done with it by our next meet so sure.
Also do you like fire hydrants? I have a Muller in the back and an extra Kennedy that I can give to a good home.

Just the one Kennedy. Should be an early 2000's model.

Hey guys, I just got my 2012 jk lifted and I just got it back from my mechanic. I need to get it aligned. But the ESC light came on and hasn't gone off. What could have caused this?

How's your steering? Is your wheel straight? As I have just learned you may need to adjust your draglink which is the main control arm coming from your steering to the wheels. There's a coupling just right of center to adjust. Should take about 5 min to fix. There's a few write ups on the forum.

Steering is pulling to the left and my steering wheel isn't centered. But I need to get my alignment done which will be tomorrow morning. Could I fix at home or should I take it to the guy that put the lift on?

Yeah everything's good now. I got the steering wheel straight but the light was still on so I went on a dirt road that had some sand and it went off instantly
