not a big fan of high roller but i know someone that has a connection there so that might help. they usually overcharge anyway. getting to lowcountry 4x4 isnt that big a deal to me and id trust them more.

dont want to go straight axle, no need for it and pricey.

do you have any pics of the upper mount of the coil-overs, the mounts of the new bars on the lower crossmember and the other end of the bars (where they mount).

close-ups and full view photos would be very appreciated. ive been searching all day (had a half day at work) and im very close to making this happen. just need some comfirmation pics.

one other thing, having trouble finding coil-over shocks. ive seen kits but dont know if the stock shock can be used. someone wanna help me here as well? very much obliged.

ive found just about everything ill need. only one question for now. if i put coil-overs in and eliminate the t-bars, do i have to replace them with something that will stop back and forth movement or can i keep just the coil-overs there and not have to worry?
