    Ideally for the front, but there's a few options.

    Basically ill need:
    Shackle or new leaf pack for the rear
    Ext brake lines
    SYE or drop
    New Coils or spacers for the front
    Ext shocks all around

    I furgot about leaf in the rear. Just link the rear and swap completely out for air shocks, adjustable ride height and comfort. Boom!

    On a more realistic note how does the pack feel in the rear?

    Too easy.

    They're worn. Was a bitch and a half getting the aal the last time I lifted it. I do want the benefits of flex with the shackles tho

    supercharged with lots of midtravel bling.
    Whent wheeling yesterday. This is my buddies Rubi. The long arm kit flexes great but it was closr to going over a few times because the springs are so soft.

    After the front rebuild of the cherokee's changed out the rustys tracbar for the Iron Rock doubleshear. Seems like a nice piece.

    Also I would deffinetly get the adjustable arms. You are really only adding adjustability, but you will kick yourself down the road when you dont have it and cant get setup perfect.

    Nice pics. The bumper looks like it held up perfectly, so it sounds like Kermit is no worse for wear.

    Shitty Facebook pics but we hit up Apache Trail today to get out of town for a little scenery. It was pretty rough this time... all the rain had it very washboardy and rutted up bad in spots.
