Axles geared to 4.88

Re: 1989 jeep comanche build thread

Sounds like a good plan, but why not a full locker in front as well?

Not only do they cover you, they don't get in your way like other kits on the market. When properly installed you should be able to use ALL your handles and knobs (pre-98 models have some obstruction on the glove box). Precision bending allows for massive amounts of head room and a 100% usable rear seat (for kids AND adults).

That is copy from both websites for the same product. DandC Extreme did copyright their site

I'm not sure how a Business can protect themselves from copyright infringement, short of court, if the offender pays no heed to copyright notices.

In another thread, JCR Off-Road claimed infringement by this same company. After seeing the proof as posted above, it appears what everyone says about this guy is spot on. I wouldn't by from him.

If you like the cage, take Cal's advice and buy it from DandC Extreme. It looks like a nice product and they have the install instructions on their website at http://www.dandcextreme.com/product.asp?pkID=126
