    Yeah. I looked that up, but it doesn't seem that I wouldn't get the stability I'm looking for. I'm not really worried about losing flex right now, as the flex lost won't be that bad if I do it right.

    As far as the front goes. Clayton offroad makes a front half only long arm kit. can be found at northridge4x4 and 4x4rockshop. dave (northridge) and mike (rockshop) are great guys to get parts from. The clayton kit is pure beef and pretty bad ass IMHO. The mix of the clayton front and leaf back should be really strong set up. Thought you might wanna look into that. hope that helps

    This is true, BUT you can also call RE and they will sell you individual components and get you a better price as a "package" deal. (ie. you can get the front arms and the center mounting points/skid, etc.) If memory serves correct, you are already running theis SA lift...might be something to think about.

    Check out this site http://www.4x4xplor.com/tj.html the guy used air bags inside the rear coils with great success, you can seriously change the load and ride height for stability and still have good sag when you want. much cheaper than some other ideas
    Just a thought

    I do have the RE SF lift now, so I'd save money buy just going to RE for the LA lift.

    10th Mountain, I'm gonna look into that airbag idea.

    You might not need a track bar. There's a lot of YJ'ers that don't run track bars front or rear. I still have mine in the front because of my continued steering issues. But I don't have one in the rear.

    BTW, you on the outs? When are you leaving and where are you going?
