just finishing up my tj and my buddys tj(wheelsofsteele). he did a 60 front w 60 rear out of a 79 ford. had a rubicon long arm so we changed the upper links in rear, tossed the rear trackbar and built a 3 link for the front. i did a 60 front 14 bolt rear,3 link front, leaves in the rear. streched to 103. i built new arms for the front and 2.5 currie joints. will post up pictures and more detail when i figure out how to get these pictures in photobucket. we started mikes jeep july 29 sun night and finishing it up today. his tj is a 1997 mine is a 2003. there is some diffrent stuff between the years.i will give detail on what we ran into.

I originally did this with my RE LA when I went to 60s. The rear upper joints did not like it. I ripped them up within a year. Keep an eye on them.
we will thanks. rubicon express told him he could just angle them in and make a brace over the axle. well no way. we had to cut the upper mounts off the skid and make new ones. would not allow the arms to come in far enough. didnt want that bind anyhow.
