then drilled the holes and welded some Grade 8 flanged nuts to mount the P/S pump to the bracket.

Now i got a heavy duty steel bracket that wont break like that OEM crap.

So I finshed my lift today and it looks great, but now I just have this erge to go taller and bigger. But here are some problems that Im having.

1-front wheels stick more left and the rear wheels stick out more right
2-rear wheels are not centered in wheel wel.
3-when driving in a stright line, my steering wheel is upside down
4-Jeep turns all the way left but not right.
5-Had to take out the mounting brackets and do some zip tieing to be able to drop all the way without no problems.

Hopeful an alignment should fix this all up right(except 5), if the guys know what their doing. Because I read other peoples threads and forums talking about this and ended up just doing it themselves and adj. the drag link.

Front

Rear

Before

After


Also about the shocks, this is what I was talking about and how I tightend them.

You drive a tj, we drive a zj. We have more power while you get more shower. We get the v8 while you get there too late. You have 2 doors well, we have 2 more. Ours costs a grand while yours has a price we cant stand.

Both upper and lower, would this be a fix it now before hitting the trail because it will rub the lower portion of the fender or can it wait?

It can wait. Tires move back as they move up. You could do the alignment yourself by measuring fnr of the front tires. Though I would start by adjusting the arm off the pitman arm to get it turning equal, and steering wheel correct.

As long as I dont rub while on the trail them Im good. I was thinking of doing it myself after I found this website that shows everything on it. But it looks time consuming

You lucky mo-fo haha I wish I had money. I am going to the bank tomorrow to see what I can get for a loan. It's a 2002 Dodge Dakota quad cab, 5.9, 50k original miles, not a single dent or scratch, no rust, things mint! If all goes well, girlfriend said she would loan me the money for the down payment and I would pay her back when I sell the Jeep. But I am probably going to wait it out, fix all that's wrong with the Jeep and sell it with nothing wrong so I can get alot more for it.

EDIT: that's if I do, depending on what happens in the next few months for moving out. I got a job offer that involves alot of hauling which is why I have been looking more at trucks. Worst comes to worst, I will tow with the Jeep and see how it goes.

Satisfaction of a job well done. Realization that it has to be done again.....priceless.

I can't tell you how many times I have done that with the bumpstop cups when I get so focused on getting the darn coils in. Derp.
