What about exhaust, will I have a ton of issues to deal with when to comes to finding someone to bend the pipes properly and give it a good look that won't break the bank?

The Dana 300 is an excellent transfer case. I recommend you use it. I would see a reliable muffler shop to get a proper exhaust made.

Unfortunately a little thing called CAFE probably prevents that from happening...

How about a rephrase? What do dealer service shops put in the AX5/15 of a YJ when it is in for service and needs fluid? I do not believe there is a GL-4 Mopar fluid available.

OK, thanks. I just did a quick look on-line and it appears the bike carrier shipping weight is 37 pounds. Is that about right? If so, then I should be able to put on a spare that is up to 37 pounds more than my stock Rubicon wheel/tire, correct?

Scanning the JK section here shows I'm not the only one having this issue with completely stock jeep. How this can develop so early on completely stock jeep, and what do I do to get the dealer to fix this under warranty. I'm sick of hearing "it's steering stabilizer" and "all jeeps do this"...
I am sorry to hear that you are having continued issues with steering shimmy. It is not a Jeep issue it is more of an issue related to the fundamental architecture of a solid front axle suspensions system. If you have had your steering stabilizer replaced multiple times and have verified that your tires are in balance then it is most likely contributed to your steering stabilizer. There is a new improved steering stabilizer service fix that should be out by years end that will resolve your issue. Another option is to install a aftermarket stabilizer that is larger than the current production

The JK Dana 60 is taken from the J8 military Egyptian vehicle. it uses a conventional D60 carrier and gear set.
