    My welder I use at my work(industrial and heavy equipment ) is bad ass and has a TJ but he’s in Westford MA, might be a bit or a drive.

    Myself, steel only though, and no fab equipment.
    Don't know if Jared is still too busy or not?
    John from Pipe Dreams in Rochester, which might be too far for you as well.
    Chris seems to be very handy too ;)
    Thought you already had a thread going about this Scott?
    Traction, articulation, and gearing make a good off-road rig. Just a big lift, wide mud tires, and a winch simply do not ;)

    Well I wish good luck than, and hope it comes out nice for you.

    I did mine. It was not as bad as I thought it was going to be to do, and they came out good :)

    This is the Rusty's(ironic, I know) kit that allows fore and aft adjustment of the springs, to fine tune the angle. I started off with their recommendation on placement, which I ended up staying with, and the springs are perfectly straight with no [common] bend(that TJ's usually have) from their own advanced 3" suspension lift kit. Lift height stayed true afterwards and the ride dramatically improved!

    Jeff did mine a couple years ago. Was better than new. And couldn’t even tell he did it. Looked factory.
    It's all gone.
