Adam,

I've done a couple of these and never actually documented it because I assumed it was already covered elsewhere.  FWIW, the main reason I did the mod is to eliminate the annoying 4.0L hot start issue (i.e. engine stumbling when you start it after short stops).  I've never experienced any issues like Frank mentioned, but my Jeep is so noisy I'm not sure I could hear it anyway. 

I can't get to it now, but will try to pull some information together over the next week.  In the mean time, here's a link that gives a little more detail.  The hardest part of the entire project is getting the firewall hole placement correct.

My wife now refers to this as project "do over", but I think I'm going to call it "whiplash".    Duh  A sick child at home has slowed progress, but I'm closing in on wrapping it up.  Progress thus far is:

 - stock front and rear bumpers are back on
 - stock gas tank skid is back in;
 - Dana 30/35 combo is in place
 - stock control arms are back on
 - new H&R 1" springs are in place
 - stock shocks are back on and
 - a super nice set of stock Rubicon wheels, with like new 31" tires are on

I've never seen H&R springs before. How do you like them?

This is the second set I've had and they are a quality German made spring.  They ride nicely, being just a little stiffer, are thicker than the stock springs and aren't as susceptible to sagging.  They're only available in a 1" lift, but they also help take some of the factory TJ rake out.  It's a great alternative, if you want to run 31" tires.

Ahh crap. I was hoping for 2"+ I need to replace my old worn out springs and shocks. They look nice though!
