    2.5" TF kit installed!!

    I'll try and get pictures tomorrow but I got it installed with the AEV Geometry brackets, man it rides great and it's not darty at all. It rides better than it did when stock. I'll put about 500 miles or so on it and go back over the bolts and check the tq again but going to get the Cooper Discovery Pro STT 295/70/18's on this evening after work. Can't wait to see it with the tires.
    I got the $748 kit that came with the TF shocks etc. and I added TF stabilizer shock, added the AEV brackets for good measure and glad I did. The steering is just a hair to the left but a quick trip to the alignment shop will cure that.
    Now my friends hollering detachable sway bar links, do we need them?

    Depends on what you plan on doing with the rig.

    If it's strictly a daily driver, then you don't need the sway bar disconnects. If you take it off road, it helps a lot, especially in situations where you are crawling on rocks.

    Congrats on the new lift!

    Also, if by "steering is a bit to the left" you mean the steering wheel is off center this can be easily fixed by just adjusting your draglink. Although an alignment is never a bad idea after a lift.

    Not really required but adding a detachable swaybar endlinks make a huge improvement when tackling bumpy/washboard roads.
