The ride is phenomenal with the Bilsteins and long arms. It was pretty good when i had the front sway bar on. Took the sway bar off and started driving around without it and it now drives better than ever. Definitely more body roll but it rides very smooth. I am very glad I went with this set up over getting cheaper shocks. I would even go out and say that it rides better than my sisters new 2014 WK2. No where near the same road manners but the way it absorbs the bumps is just ridiculous. At highway speeds, 50+, I barely feel any bumps in the road, and I'm sure you know how Oklahoma highways are, lol. Overall, the Bilsteins go great with my soft suspension. RC coils and OME leafs are very soft and make my ride very, very good.
Thats awesome man! oh and yes i know how these highways are, Tulsa has some of the worst it seems, i like your set up its pretty much how i want mine long arms and bils good to hear that IRO set up works great! keep up the pics you guys should be seeing snow on the ground right about now?? i know we are up here in Tulsa soon.

I can't really say anything about the snow. I was in Muskogee all weekend hunting and just got back a few hours ago. Most of it is melted. What's left is frozen over.

Thread Update.

Nothing has been happening with the jeep. Had the bolt on my front passenger side bar pin eliminator break or fall out. It was no fun while I was driving.


Snowed in OK last week and went and had some fun but I didn't get any pics. It was mainly just donuts.
It was also finals week and I had to take advantage of the free parking spots.


Then today i cleaned my Jeep of all the sand/salt they had put down on the roads.

I am aware of this. Pretty much the first thing on my "Buy for jeep" list. Next summer I am sure I will have new, bigger, tires.

Thread update.

Went wheeling the other day to the usual Big Red Offroad Park. Had a great time and really tested my jeep. And I didn't break anything luckily. But I did come away with some trail damage.
Trails got a little thin and rocks have started poking out from the sides. Got some new dents on my doors.



Didn't get many photo's but I did get a lot of video that I'll be pulling pics from. Here are just a few.

If you want to watch the rest they are all on my Youtube channel.

Hopefully I will be going wheeling again later in February with people who will actually follow me. The Mall Crawlers were too afraid to follow so there were many things that I didn't get to do because I had no backup if something happened.

I'm sure you would. There are plenty that would follow me but when I was there nobody wanted to. It was very disappointing as they had some modified rigs as well.

Forgot to post 2 pictures that a fellow jeeper snapped.

looks great! loving that park i have never been there, only to little areas around here and lately ive done nothing, so after taxes get here it will be nice to be able to give some love to the keep! im really considering going IRO long arms i love them... but then again for what i do with my jeep i think just some new short arms will set me up just right, we will just have to see. i mean should I skip the short arm stage and go straight to the IRO LA's?
