    Guy down the road has the MOTO wheels for about a year. They are nice. Costly. Being discontinued! must be recent.

    Got seat covers. Had to. So much White Labrador hair!! Ordered Rugged Ridge Ballistic set for all seats in black. They fit well. I'm happy. They don't slide a round. Stitched well and made strong. Top and Bottom are separate pieces. For the front I got two passenger side tops! and no front seat bottoms!! UHG!! Working out the details now. We will see.

    This is the brush I use to clean hair off and out. It works fairly well dry and better if damp.

    Looks nice.

    Are the rear control arms lengthened properly?. The rear appears to be further forwards than id expect.
    Maybe the anglf or lighting.

    Good Catch!!
    Yeah, I struggled with knocking out the Tabs on the Front & Rear Control Arms. I figured I'd have a Pro Shop make the final adjustments. I want a good ride with no problems. I was pondering on making the adjustments myself but have know idea what angles to shoot for!

    You bought this lift correct ?

    Rubicon Express 3.5" Progressive Coil Lift Kit with Twin Tube Shocks - RE7142PT

    I forgot where we left off discussing long arm/short arm.

    So what do you mean by knocking out the tabs?

    Re: Swapping a 94 YJ for a 2018 JKU. Time for the mods!!

    Yes. That is the Kit I bought/installed. On the lower? rear control arm and front control arm when you remove the bolts at the axle the bolt holes have small "knock out tabs" on both sides. The instructions said to knock these out so that the control arms can be adjusted by sliding them foreword or backward. Hard to see but in this pic there is small tabs to the left and right that when knocked out make elongated holes. I could not knock these things out & I figured since to be safe I was gonna take the jeep in to have the angles checked anyways.... I would let a Pro do the knock outs. I'm pretty handy.... should I do this myself? Check the angles? Your thoughts?

    Maybe, Control Arm drop down brackets vs adjustments?

    Never heard of knocking those out.
    You want the suspension parts to have no play.

    Well i guess the new JKs allow for it with cam bolts. Starts at 11 min.

    Id still rather invest in longer arms or adjustable ones.

    Turned out well. Slight rubbing in front from fenders when turning above 80%. Tech checked axels and various alignment and angles and said if I'm not rock climbing.... I'm all good. Smooth ride up to 80... so far. Good braking, no pulling or odd vibrations! Swapping a 94 YJ for a 2018 JKU. Time for the mods!!-20200530_090308.jpegSwapping a 94 YJ for a 2018 JKU.
