They're in. Scale of 1 to 10 they were a solid 8... I never want to do that again

I've read the zj seats are a little easier to get in.

Got the replacement coils and shocks in



Re 5.5" vs IRO 3" + 2" spacers

The OME shocks are a nice improvement as well.



Note the brake lines. I got that fixed ASAP



I've got all new lines. I'm procrastinating

How do those RE springs ride? I'm torn between RE and clayton springs and i think the difference is like 5-10lbs in the spring rate lol.
