The madness begins as i use my day off to install my "piece mail lift"

All the bolts that I have been soaking in penetrating oil at random for about two weeks has paid off,no broken bolts or torches needed.

Here she is off the hoist but still under slight preload from the hoist,stance is much better!

looks good, you can get russle brand braided brake lines from lordco for a pretty good price, and you can get them and length you want as well, piece of advice, get the rubicon express track bar and track bar mount, then when you decide to go bigger later on, no issues,

what kinda tires you planning on running?

31x10.50r15 KM2's
Dont want to go any higher in lift or bigger tires than that. She's still my DD as well as my trail rig,would like her to be streetable for long hauls.

yea I said the same thing lol, then came 33`s, then swapping axles, locking axles, bigger lift, then another lift, lol,

but best thing you can do, upgrade the trackbar and trackbar mount like I said, swap the rear diff for a 8.8, get rid of that d35 crap diff, lock it as well, and swap the thin Cherokee steering out for v8 grand Cherokee steering, its solid, and will last longer as well, especially if you have a tendancy to not pay attention to what when your driving lol, and a slip yoke eliminator, then you will go pretty much anwhere you wanna go,

The rear brake line usually has a bracket to lower the steel line
Down as the front lines are just undo the bracket holding it to body pull down on steel lines and use a self taping screw to remount it
That's how the instructions for up to a 4 inch Cherocar lift say to do it

Fronts have already been relocated,rears are ok for now I just ran out of time,but it will get worked on.
