Thanks! Redbeard144 I just wanted a bit more clearance under the big 9" and figured since my 33s was bald it was a good time to upgrade and ditched my wheelspacers as well.

Had a friend fab these up today out of 3/8" plate with 1.5" spacers


Parked next to fathers xj



Fabbed up a new trackbar and installed highsteer


Next to friends xj he has about 5-6" lift


Gonna go get jeep out on rocks tomorrow and see how it does!

Oh I am in it quite a bit had to finish it for wheeling trip so I bought tera bracket and joints. It's the stock upper bracket drilled out with a tappered sleeve to run a tera 1 ton tre. I'm sure I'm around $200 in parts but its working great!! I've got minimal tire rub still but I can easily take care of it when I get back from my trip. I've also noticed the trutracs don't like to lock up as well with the bigger tires.

Thanks all! I'm happy with the setup in front nice having zero bumpsteer and it tracks straight down the road and feels solid. However its time to address the the area around steering box I've noticed some cracks where the two seams meet. And my driverside rear forward spring mount is tearing away and I have an inch long crack beneath rear seat. Knew it was bound to happen so time for some plating!
