Pair of (shortarm) Rough Country lower control arms. I installed Johnny Joints the first time the original X-Flex joints needed adjustment. They are freshly disassembled, cleaned and lubricated using Redline CV2. Jam nuts are loosened and ready to set to your desired length.

The fixed end has Clevite style bonded rubber and are in good shape. It's a stock size bushing so if you destroy it it's easily replaced with an OE style bushing or something like a Synergy DDB (I just did it on my other pair because I wanted to). The housing is welded offset from the body to help with lower shock mount clearance.

bump to add, the JJ's retail for $132 on their own so this is a pretty good deal for pretty decent adjustable control arms. The only reason I'm selling is because the 2" tubes rubbed the front tires a little too much with my 35s on 4" of backspacing. I still have a pair on the rear that I will likely keep on there forever. If you run smaller than 35s these will work fine in front, and they work perfectly in the rear regardless.

Would these fit my 05 TJR with only a 2.5" spring lift. I need to replace my front lowers.

yes, they should fit just fine as long as you don't go with 12.5" wide tires with any more than 3.75" backspacing.
 
I plan sticking with my Rubicon 16" wheels and I will be trying to stay around 10.5" wide tires.

I ran them with 11.5's with 5.25" backspacing and they made a little contact but weren't too annoying. It was when I went to 35's and 4" backspacing that they ate into my steering radius. i think you should be in good shape with a 10.5" tire and the 5" of backspacing on those Rubi wheels.
