So as some of you guys know, I moved out to Southern California with both my Jeeps and started a new life.

I have been doing a lot of AWESOME wheeling adventures and hanging out with LOST Jeeps SoCal people all the time. One of the founders of LOST and the moderator of the SoCal section is someone I hangout with all the time! They are a great group of people as all LOST Jeeples are! :BANANA:

I have been to Moab and going to Black Bear Pass next year. I love it out here, but I do have to say I miss my Northeasterners, especially my Long Island Jeep family. I keep in contact with some of you on Facebook, but I barely go on the forum anymore. Been too busy with my move.

BUT ANYWAY, I have great news! I don't know if any of you guy heard but All J Products here in Big Bear Lake, Southern California and I have decided to bring in my Libby to their shop and have them build their FIRST EVER Franken lift for a KK! They were more than happy to use mine for the guinea pig! They will be lifting her, (my old lift has had it's time and the ride with my lift that Luigi gave me has been killing me), and they will be taking pictures of Libby and possibly putting them on their website! Soon enough, the Franken lift that will be installed on my Jeep will be ready for all you KK'ers! :POPCORN:

I will update pix when I get my Jeep all done. They are taking it on July 16th 2014.

I hope you guys respond so I can update all ya'll on my travels and adventures!

Happy Jeeping guys!!!! :JEEPIN: :JEEPIN: :JEEPIN:

So what are the benefits of the Frankenlift over a normal OME lift?

Gotta get at least 3". OME 927 and 731 springs alone get 2.5". Doesn't the Frankenlift come with a custom top plate for an extra bit of lift over just the springs?

Honestly, I don't know much about it, but what I do know is that it is just above 2" and it uses a lot of OME parts but will ride a lot nicer.

I do not live in either the Northeast or California, and I drive a KJ. Nevertheless, I am very, very happy for you guys. Looking forward to the results of the experiment! :JEEPIN:

So here are the picture of my Libby all done....

Here are the before pictures: Image

Now here are the process pictures:

ImageImage

We had some difficulty getting the old bushing out on the passenger side.

Image

Image
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Rust much?
Image

Ended up getting a new bump stop!
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

The had to cut my old clevis fork from the RK lift down to 8.25"
Image

Image

New bushing!
Image

Image

AND THE AFTER FINISHED PRODUCT!!
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

It sits around 2.5" - 3.0".

Any other questions, don't hesitate to ask!

What do you measure from the center of the hub to the fender? It looks about 3" of lift. Might be slightly less.
