Here are my plans for it. I currently have the following which will be installed soon.

3.5 inch lift coil springs from Rusty's off road
3.5 inch leaf springs from Rusty's
new upper and lower control arms for 3 inch lift (Rusty's off road)
4 new hydro shocks with red boots
Rubicon Express 1600 adjustable track bar
extended stainless steel brake lines front and rear
Rubicon Express steering stabilizer

I'll post pics when it all gets installed. I have a full week of work, then next week is Jeep build time!

I just ordered some JKS sway bar discos. So those will be installed next week too! Can't wait to take this baby wheeling with all the new suspension components.
