Its not quite that simple. You'll need an inner clevis to adapt the rack to accept a heim, you'll have to build your own tie rods and then figure out how to adapt a heim on the single sheer outer clevis on the spindle and then keep it there... You're better off just buying a preassembled kit or having a shop build one for you to ensure the geometry is correct.

I think to alot of people it is, the extra droop is nice, especially when paired with 35's

Shit, I destroyed the stock fenders with 33s on my first dune trip. It'll definitely happen.

Just finished my AP LT install today. Did it myself. Took about 17 hours with no help. Granted I spent way more time than anticipated getting the half shafts out of the birfields.

You will still need glass with AP LT. With 33's I beat the hell out of my stock fenders the first time I took it offroad. Knocked off both of the fender flares and was scraping the fender all the time. Plus it looks way better. AP sells glass that matches the width.

AP is one of those kits that understates/does not exaggerate travel numbers. My tape measure puts travel at closer to 13'' than 12''.

Remember that track width isn't the only thing that determines travel. Heim joints vs. stock ball joints, heim steering, and a longer coil over (and the angle it is mounted at) will all influence travel numbers.

I believe you that it might be closer to 13 cuz mine droops till the half-shafts rest on the cv housings just a tiny bit. Needless to say limit straps are on order.

I don't want to run glass because they are a pain in the ass to mount and get everything to work with like lights and crap. They don't mount as clean as stock don't looks as good as stock and I just don't want to run them.

And like I said, do not expect to retain your fender flares if you use the LT. Expect tire damage from the sheet metal as well.

Well that's blows for me. I didn't want to run glass it's 400 extra plus paint and they don't make glass for the 2012 yet so I can't run glass even if I wanted to witch I still would prefer not to.
