Re: 98 XJ build help - Armor & Lift...

Does DPG actually make good stuff? they have super low prices, but ive never seen anyone use it. I've been eyeballing their bumpstop plates for a while now, and their transfer case skid. but I'm Leary about ordering it.

I don't know that Dirk makes anything, I've bought several lift kits from him though, great guy, I went and visited him about 10yrs ago!

I don't think I saw longer shackles on this thread yet. One inch straight or boomerang is plenty; not adjustable, though.

If you go adj shackles, id do Ironman4x4fab, ive seen them in person, they are beefy. I personally have DBmetalworks boomerang shackles and they are well built. Boostwerks has their comp shackles too, dunno how well they work, but they look good

I scored a ZJ gas tank skid plate for $15 from the JY. Does anyone know if an install thread exists with pictures? Everything I've found has dead photobucket links.
