The wind drag with a tire on top is the biggest difference I noticed... the jeep would slow down much faster just lettin off the gas than it does now so that means there was a lot of drag to it........I guess and If you can build one....It would be much CHEAPER I believe. I got mine pretty cheap and that was what I wanted at the time. Been there done that got the T-Shirt.

Welp got the frame back somewhat straight today on my lunch break..

Installed the new crossmember and made the t/c skid Ive been using work. So all in all its comin together decent. I have to pick up some longer bolts tonight for extra security the ones I pulled out only had about 4 threads engaged into the frame......thanks JJP
