I think you’re okay. You can always shorten it if you have any interference.
You might want to start with the links in the 3rd hole until you get used to the feeling of the anti rock.

I started mine in the 3rd hole and have never changed them. Moab trails , Rubicon, Big Bear trails, no issues.

Thanks. I'll adjust to third and go from there.

The Currie AntiRock replaces the sway bar. Provides more articulation over the factory sway bar.

So just to finish off this thread, here is the end result of what started out repainting the frame that turned into a weight reduction and refresh of the front and rear of the jeep. I gained an inch in height and the jeep does not feel as sluggish as before.... and the seats of my pants tell me that it feels a bit nimble and more responsive. I still have to wire up a couple of lights for the bumper plate and figure out a place for the antenna. I ended up with a new cat-back exhaust as the prior shop that did the work just welded the support coming off the muffler and pipe straight to the frame. I had to acquire the original brackets and bushings. I went with the Banks kit. It was a perfect fit and a rather painless install. Thanks for all the good discussions, everyone.

Looks good. I’d suggest that you get a thimble for your winch line so the end isn’t continuously exposed. You can mount your hook with a D ring when/if you need it. Rarely use a hook.
Only time will tell if your KC lights are in the “damage” zone. If you ever wheel in Truckhaven they will be gone quickly.
