That's what it looks like. I will be installing on my JK next week and will take pictures.

Picture showing the difference between the stock and SSBC.
What an amazing difference in stopping the JK with 35's!
I would recommend this upgrade to anyone who needs to stop quicker.

Amazing, what a huge difference it made.  I would recommend anyone who has a JK and wants to slow down faster with big tires to get this kit.
