put all new rear brakes on the jeep everything is 100% new but the drums nice having rear brakes again! lol

so the steering is still sloppy. feels notchy to me. and has like a flat spot, have new tie rods, alignment, ball joints... only thing i can think of now is the control arms, or the steering box? any thoughts? still getting a shimmy around 45-50

put some reverse lights on it. just wired them into the stock reverse light wiring. drilled the lights out and ran some hose clamps through it and tightened em to my hitch. there are about 1/4" higher than the bottom of hitch so they wont get smashed... hopefully lol
