The missus' 2009 Jeep Wrangler project

First, thanks to all who came down and turned a wrench. This was the most complicated lift I have installed. It would not have been possible with my friends. Jason, Rich and Ashley, Tom, and Michael, the missus, and the kid, everybody came down and helped.

Here it is wearing my tires....








The kit is the Rubicon Express Long Arm 4.5" I got from Don't Fear the Jeeper.

The front lower arms attach to a customer cross member. The front uppers attach to the lower arm.






The rear lower arms require drilling the frame and welding in threaded slugs with a support plate on the back side. The bracket is mounted pretty close to the door line. The upper arm branches off the lower arm. Just like the front.






The front trac bar has a drop bracket on the frame side and the adjustment at the axle side.



The rear trac bar just has a bracket on the axle side.




The kit came with extended brake lines. And shocks. Ride locally is awesome. She loved the ride and now wants 37's. Would I do this lift again? Heck yea. Bring it. I can't wait for Anne to get this thing on the trails. I still have the snorkel to mount up.

Not sure just yet. We have to get Anne her own set of tires/wheels. Doing the shopping for those now. I want her to drive it around locally to see if any issues arise. So, it's still a ways out right now.
