    hey, why did you use the f-250 mounts???could you not have used 2" square tubing to make the shock mounts???and also how did you know your shocks were too short?? did you unbolt them and run it up the ramp or can you just jack up one side???don't have any Ramp's around here....

    ANYBODY LOSE THEIR JEEP????????[​IMG]

    Nice job on the review. What an inexpensive way to add flex to the front at least...........I imagine the rear couldn't be that spendy either.

    How long are the front brake lines?

    The reason the Ford shock towers were used is because you DONT have to make anything, just bolt them up and cut off the extra length.
    Brakelines are 6" longer than stock right now, and they were OK, but will need longer ones if I get any more flex.
