King front shocks... I am in love!

I will finally have my matching King set! Well, not to deceive, I have not bought them yet, but these are on the top of the Christmas list now.

http://downsouthmotorsports.com/i-23...25001-162.html

I will have the reservoir lines extended a bit to make sure they reach an install location on the crossover bar in the engine bay. I will also have them built for the 6" lift so I will not have any extra parts for the lift.

Looks like some of my lift will be for sale soon... OME struts, OME HD springs, and SL 4" bracket mounts, and the cheesy rear shocks that came with the kit.

King Shock part number: 25001-162

Why?... because my favorite color is blue.

Nice! I might be interested in your old OME struts, OME HD springs. Need something to tie me over until I can get carried away too

It will be around February when I rip everything out. I will keep you posted.

Nothing wrong with my kit, I am just going to the King setup and some anodizing for color that my daughters want.

Blue is always attractive, those seems a good choice. Can't wait to see it installed.

So I'm curious, did you get this done. We would love to see how you mounted the reservoir. This is how I did mine. https://www.jeepcommander.com/forums...28-173608.html
