It’s done and I’ve used it !

Works well no problems which I’m pleased about, flex and lockers all work well.

Looking good Mike. How did you find it was with the extra height?

Weirdly enough, I didn’t really seem to notice much difference. I don’t know if it’s because the weight is all down low in the right place or what really the only thing I did notice is how much wider the front is because before the front axle was 4 inches narrower than the rear, so it’s bizarre to drive now with them both being equal.

Well that's good news, jobs been done right and not just your typical lifted to moon SJ that rolls ever at the thought of a slope. I'm expecting the same with mine about the front width, more width can only be a good thing

New compressor fitted as three fine the size of the old one

Twin fans now fitted also to rad.
