178k is nothin for the 4.0L. Don't let the fact that the ****ty rough country stuff makes your jeep shake and creak keep you from buying more stuff for it.

Thats how I see it with mine. Worst case scenario the motor blows, then its some CL hunting and like 400 bucks away from living again.

Take off the Rough Country parts and leave them on their doorstep with a note saying "here is your **** back".

Trust me I would live too lol put new tre on the jeep today and got it aligned. Drives so much better but still has a shimmy at like 50~ I think its the Rc arms. And the fact that the leaf and shock bushings are toasted doesn't help. Ugh lol

Yeah the bushings are the worst parts from them. I saw in the XJ thread you put on a new steering stabilizer... is it Rough Country? I have the same one. The bushings wore out in about a month. I ended up putting poly bushings in it to keep it from making annoying noises.

For the amount of time I spent taking it off and putting new bushings in it I would've rather just bought an OME stabilizer in the first place.
