Do you guys/gals think it would be possible for these lights to fit the front bumper location in any capacity? They are probably bigger then the factory ones but I was thinking I might be able to make brackets or mounts for them.

I have heard there are SPC uca on rockauto selling under a different name maybe "mevotech" something like that for alot cheaper then SPC.

So this is the what I found on Rockauto:

http://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo.php?pk=6556084&cc=1433009&jsn=410

After discount and shipping to where I work I would be looking at 206$

Ok dumb question, are these UCA or LCA?

Well I just picked up some OEM Pro 4X shocks (front/rear) with the Rough Country 2.5" spacers and some shackles for the rear. The OG owner took off the stock/OEM suspension at 42K miles and has been sitting ever since. Once I get a house and have a good place to work I will do a better lift...

The plan is to knock this out on Saturday morning before the wife wakes up. As she wants to go do something... Wish I put 2 and 2 together and seen the Clean Up for Saturday...

A big thank you goes out to Matthew of Gilbert for hooking me up and Stoic if you see this I still plan on buying your wheels.

So a little update. I have not installed the Pro 4X suspension yet. Looking for either someone with a compressor or an cordless impact gun.

Does anyone on here run any form of aftermarket headers?

I am looking at the following...

Doug Thorley long tube

A "No Name" long tube on 4x4parts.com

and the Twisted Steel tube headers on 4x4parts.com

For those that are running headers what are the pros/cons?

Replacing the front coilovers is a 3 hour job - 1 hour if you've done it before.  3 nuts up top, 1 on bottom, and the sway bar (times 2).  Torque spec on lug nuts is 98 ft-lbs - a 150 ft-lb torque wrench will handle that.  No need for impact wrench or compressor.  Dunno about the back - I've only replaced my shackles - not the shocks (yet).

This should be an easy mod-day event.  I would volunteer to help, but you live an hour away :(

Also, I'd be careful about 2.5" spacers unless you have weak springs.  I put in 700# springs (to support my 400# max carnage bumper) and had 1.5" spacer.  My UCA was hard up against the coil bucket and never moved - had to take out the spacer (H/T Eron).  So I've had some practice in front end disassembly/reassembly :) 
2015 Pro-4X with solar panel and inverters.  Skid plates.  Sasa Sliders. 2" rear lift.  ARB front bumper+10K winch.  OME front suspension. Front bumper camera.  Molle panels.

I tried breaking the bottom shock bolts loose using hand tools with no luck. I did not spray the bolts that could be the issue. The shackles are not the real issue it is more the shock mount bolts and the rear sway bar. Does anyone know if the stud that is part of the endlink and goes through the sway bar if that is keyed for an allen  wrench?

As far as the spacers and springs. The setup I have now is stock Pro 4x Bilstein yellows.
