Curious…how much did you lift your Nitro?
2.5 in blocks plan on going a higher when it's not a daily might even combine the ome 2.5 suspension lift with my blocks for a 5 in lift maybe then I can get some 33s

Wow, that’s be nuts….. you’d basically have to have the whole suspension….brake lines….and more custom made lol. Not to mention the CV’s. If you didn’t trim out the hole for the UCA mount, you have to cut it out down to the bottom of the lip or it will hit. The flaw of the JBA control arm…I can’t tell by the pic if yours is. Then paint it back… or seal it to prevent rust somehow. —-should’ve done the suspension lift when u did the UCA….. that fuse box is going to have to come out again. And another alignment. Otherwise good work!!! And def worth the investment.

Can you use the JBA UCA for stock ride height or does it necessitate doing a lift?
From what I've read it's made better than the stock UCA so could be a good choice for a more durable replacement--but I want to keep mine with stock ride height.

It is better with the lift because it angles the ball joint to be happier with the lift you could they are stronger but I don't know how it would effect your suspension geometry
