    JeepinByAl will be phasing out the KJ adjustable coilover lifts it seems due to their spring manufacturer not being able to find good quality wire to produce the springs.
    Still will making the UCAs etc , no worries there , but also Jeep is discontinuing a lot of KJ parts for the suspension as well
    So keep that in mind

    Seems to me in a few short years it will be time to leave Jeep after over 40 years of owning them and going elsewhere!

    To bad as I currently have three of my KJs set up with his adjustable coilovers. Does this mean replacement parts will be impossible to get in the near future?

    JBA website shows out of stock on the coilovers as well as all the lift kit packages that use them.

    Sad day indeed. I was looking at those for a couple years down the road when I wanted to go up to a 4 inch lift.

    No more 4 inch lifts, since you can't go that high with OME etc

    So I’ll revise my down the road plan to 3.5” lift in a few years. Have some goals to hit before I do more work on the truck outside of wheels, and regearing, lift, and bumper are all down the road upgrades.

    Sucks. But won't stop me from keeping the KJ or abandoning Jeep. Got something else in the works so the Liberty will have another buddy some time!

    Coilover lifts for one, all of them, having a hard time finding the coil for springs I guess
    and then Jeep is discontinuing many products for the KJ so it will all have to be aftermarket from now on

    Well, there goes my plan for lifting. Contacted Marlin and he gave me the bad news also. Crap!
    Alright, Tom. What would you suggest we do then? Who makes a lift kit for KJ that compares to JBA.
    I had my eyes set on the JBA tommudd eco kit, it was exactly what I was looking for.

    Super bummed...
