Brown Santa Dropped off 500lbs of goodies today. Clayton's 4" Pro Series Long Arm Lift Kit, Front Axle Truss, and High clearance skid.

The skid is freaking beefy, it is 130lbs by itself.

I reclaimed the garage spot last weekend, Jeep is on the jack stands and the Clayton's kit has been unboxed. I also ordered the SYE and the 2Lo kit today. :rock:

The instructions don't say anything about removing the rear upper control arm brackets but they don't appear to be used anymore.

Has anyone removed those as well?

It would be really embarrassing if someone was checking out your undercarriage and saw the brackets you didn't cut off :f2:
