Well, I had erslll from Links4Jeeps build a swing away for the wife's XJ last December and I just now got around to installing it. Confused Nevertheless, he did great! I'd like to say it was easy to install...but dang, that is one heavy motha'!!! Thank God we have the recovery hitch on there so we could rest it. Rolling Eyes

Nevertheless, OME 2" lift, 31's, and now her swing away.

Well, I had to do it at night so they wouldn't see me. The hard part is avoiding chiggers while wiping my ass on the grass. Embarassed No cops showed up (yet) so I assume that worked okay. eyebrows

Thought about having a "fertilizer party." Wanna' join us?

I'm in. I'll eat half a dozen microwave burritos the day before and I should be good for 5 pounds or more. Mr. Green

They are nice to have. I got mine off a earlier XJ, factory Mopar. Good up to a 32", just make sure you get all the brackest etc. When I installed it back on mine I didn't use pop rivets, I used grade 8 hardware, adds more strength. Just another option to look for, Good hunting!!
