My winch needs to be fixed. Blown soleniod...I can spool out, but not in. I have wire rope in the back of the Jeep, just haven't installed it yet. Front bumper might come off to get blasted/painted, so not in a hurry to fix winch yet.

not really sure. I have RE 3.5" front coils in the rear. When they were in the front they lifted the ZJ about 4.25". I now have RE 4.5" front coils in the front, but they are mounted on top of the radius arms for a couple more inches of lift. So not sure how much lift is on there 7-8" with generous fender trimming and the tires are still going to rub. We need to trim some more up front.

See you this afternoon Mike, we'll get those brakes bled and the Flowmaster on and go for a ride. We might even do the toe in and tighten the tie rod
I just moved my track bar mount a little higher on the axle. I did not want to lower in on the frame and couse a strees point
