Not sure if there is a disclaimer. But, anyone planning on running the SFR engine mounts with stock engine side brackets, prepar to modify the driver side engine bracket. I was fighting it for a while last night, then realized because of the size of the bushings that the small lip that protrudes just inside of the mounting hole interferes. Once I figured that out, and most of the dirt and stuff already fell on me, it was simple enough to swap.

Re: Johnnie Walker's MJ project

Picked up a new heim/associated hardware for my trackbar. And also hardware for my TB bracket and brace. Ordered a set of RK adjustable UCA's from a jeepforum vendor. Best price for a set of UCA's I found. Wanted to install the lift this weekend, but do not like doing things twice. So, I will wait for the RK UCA set to arrive. At the very least, I will relocate the front brake hard line lower and figure out if I need longer lines.
I still have my 2 coil prothane coil inserts. Also, have sone circular plate and other misc stuff ordered to add to that to keep them out of the bump stop towers.

Re: Johnnie Walker's MJ project

It will be better than no bumper, I suppose. And it's free, so no complaints there. Hopefully soon I can find a way to get it. Thanks again for helping out.

Re: Johnnie Walker's MJ project

Some more goodies.
RK Adjustable Uppers. Got a good deal from a Vendor over on JeepForum.
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B5G...ew?usp=sharing
Russ P is making me a pair of SS braided brake lines for the front.
For now, I think I will run the pair of V8 ZJ Upcountry coils I have, and an additional stock coil spring isolator. Buy the time I get home, it's typically dark-ish, so I will attempt to motivate myself to lift the front of the MJ this weekend.

Re: Johnnie Walker's MJ project

Got the front of my MJ lifted this weekend.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1-e8...ew?usp=sharing

RE XJ coils (PN unknown), that have been cut down some. Couldn't find the ZJ coils I had.
Synergy Suspension track bar mount and brace/Unknown adjustable TB with FK heim/Synergy mis spacers.
RK adjustable UCA/Stock LCA for meow.
My old IM4x4Fab tie rod
JKUR Shocks/homebrew BPE's
Straightened out the hard brake line for more travel. Will be install some SS braided lines when they arrive.

I initially kept the stock tie rod, but it it ended up being in bad shape. Had the craziest DW I have ever personally experienced. Every time I would come back home and check toe after a test drive it was off. I made sure that the adjusters were tight, but I should have just gone with my instinct to swap my HD tie rod to begin with.

Anyways, after it is all said and done, it drives good now. Just like on my XJ, the front end feels more solid with the aftermarket TB mount/brace. The coil are on the stiffer side too, which is fine by me.

Re: Johnnie Walker's MJ project

Got some "free to me" longer shackles installed on my MJ. Thanks to the help of Zac, and I gave him my stock MJ shackles.
Once again, I didn't measure but figure a quick search or if someone knows what "stock-ish" height is supposed to be from hub to flare.
Anyways, there is a noticeable difference.

Re: Johnnie Walker's MJ project

Installed ebay special headlight harness. Looks to be decent quality. The stock replacement sealed beams are way brighter. They actually put out white light and not some dim yellow-ish crap.

Re: Johnnie Walker's MJ project

Bought a used, external slave ax15 trans setup. Also, installed the front pair of LED cube lights I got on amazon. They are nice, white, and bright. Need more wire to install the rear lights.

Re: Johnnie Walker's MJ project

http://www.amazon.com/Putco-230004HW...YBTVHE7MZSQYA6

the odd relay is a honda part. so you can get it easy enough if it fails.
those and the hella housings with hella 100w bulbs is the cheapest way to get dumb amounts of light. The e codes keep it from blinding people. no one ever flashes us.
I kind of figured it would eat bulbs, but they're two years old and going strong. Spares are $11 on amazon.

edit:
price dropped on the bulbs.
http://www.amazon.com/HELLA-HLA-H831...P8RPPDJ5Y 760
$5 a pop.

e code housings
http://www.amazon.com/Rectangular-Ha...NY4RRJDCEBXBFH

it's the best $150 light upgrade ever.

Re: Johnnie Walker's MJ project

Ordered these H4 conversion housings, along with some Hella 100/80 bulbs.
http://smile.amazon....ailpage_o00_s00
I figured I would give them a shot for the price, I figure if they suck I can return them to amazon.

Also, ordered a set of the RE 9900 CAD-brackets from a seller on Amazon for LESS than the RC kit!
Hopefuly I will be riding in better comfort soon.
