There's a free fix for the brake lines too.

That right there is some of the best advice offered here tonight, near as I can tell we're building these for off road abilities, not speed. If speed and handling are what you're after you're not going to get it out of a jeep, plain and simple.

Most retard crap I have read posted all night. If you can't drive the speed limit safely and feel comfortable doing it sell your jeep and buy a honda, other wise take to someone who knows what they are doing and have it put together correctly. If everyone lifted their jeep to run offroad you would never seen one on the road ever. That statement is retarded.

I've got no problem doing the speed limit or over for that matter, no trac bars, or sway bars and the local roads aren't straight or smooth. If you can't do the speed limit with yours then perhaps you should build it right. Point was they aren't race cars. Retard

Lol, that's what I tell everyone. As long as you drive like an adult and not a 16 yr old who just got their license, then you shouldn't have a problem! I will start with some of these solutions and see what i come up with. Thanks

You assume it is the guy driving his Jeep irresponsibly. Its the idiots that pull out in front of you, cut you off and swerve into your lane that you're protecting yourself from. Common sense and situational awareness will only get you so far, the idiots are everywhere.

I most certainly did not assume anything. Responsible driving starts at the driver. The awareness of driving a lifted vehicle goes way beyond what outside conditions warrant. On average, there are three lanes to the freeway, You don't have to be furthest left all the time and try to keep up with the vehicles going 80 mph. One can utilize defensive driving anywhere by increasing stopping distances, constantly checking mirrors and using turn signals 200 ft before you plan to turn or merge. Letting other people know what you plan to do far before you do it will allow their small brains time for it to sink in and hopefully avoid an accident. When all else fails, install a train horn and wake them up from their car coma.

So essentially what I'm saying is don't drive it like a ferarri unless hou understand the cost of the ferarri and don't have insurance.

You DO realize there is a difference between speed and handling, right? Just because you can do the speed limit down the highway with your 4.5" lifted springs DOES NOT mean your jeep can handle corners like a Miata, Honda, minivan.... (pick the soccer mom ride of your choice).

I have lifted my YJ to run off-road, and I drive it on the road every day. Do I expect it to handle like a Ferrari? No.... and I drive it accordingly. Saying his statement is "retarded" indicates a certain lack of intelligent reasoning and deductive abilities on your part. So, if the shoe fits....

I kind of like mine to handle like a Ferrari. A bad one but handling is nice. Low and wide with sway bars is what the cool kids are doing g

Probably sent from under my broken heep
