If you Private Message MG Metal Works (he responded to you earlier in this thread) he is the MG. if you want to see detailed pics of the kit and a little install stuff there is my tan hot dog build thread (under home builds) and MG has a thread about his kit on here.

I thought the UJOR kits are bolt on with no welding required.

No, gotta weld the upper shock mounts and the front leaf spring eyelet hole (rear) in the frame. The video on Ujoints website shows the details.

Where are you in PA? Pretty sure I have possibly the only UJOINT kit installed on my SMB in my area (southeast PA) although it's a 6" not 4". I'd be willing to meet up if your not too far so you can give it a gander....

Having done a UJOR kit myself in my driveway last yr - incredibly straightforward and simple to do. 2 minor weld locations - shock mount and shackle eyelet.

I'd do a conversion myself again. After 10k of mtns, baja, snow etc... super stoked how planted the UJOR conversion rides. Chris has to date, the most dialed and proven DIY conversion out there. Will be curious how MG's kit does once he gets more traction and kits out in the field in comparable #'s

I might have a mountain bike ride out there at French Creek in the near future now that it's not insanely hot out. I will PM you if I'm heading your way.
