Went to osceola national forest over the weekend and went on some of the trails there. It was a lot of fun, more pictures later on when they are emailed to me.

So I rememoved the Addco sway bars and just put the stock one up front and have no rear sway bar and it drives like a boat now. For some reason I kinda like how it drives now, taking corners is a lot more fun. If I didn't have the OME AAL in the OME leaf pack it would almost be scary going around corners with how soft the leaf packs are.

Well I was planning on installing the long arms this weekend, along with the new 5.5" coils but there is some hardware missing from the kit, bolts and such. IRO is going to send the missing pieces but I don't know how long they will take to arrive

Oh really, yes I would be interested.


So I installed the IRO crossmember today but the front driveshft is actually hitting the cross member so I am at a loss I tried shifted the xmember around but that didn't fix it since there is very little room for play.

Lookin great, but did you not get an SYE/DS?

If you don't stand behind our troops, feel free to stand in front of them.

My Build Thread:http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f177/...96-xj-1007038/

New Mexico Driving Rules...
  • As a general rule, the vehicle most in need of a significant amount of bodywork (for which the driver is most likely uninsured) always has the right of way.
  • Never use directional signals when changing lanes. They only serve to give away your next move, causing most NM drivers to speed up and not let you in. In fact, use of directional signals within most large NM city limits is actual illegal.
  • NM law states that at least 50% of all paved surfaces within the state must be under construction at any one time. In all construction zones, at least half of the available lanes must be closed, regardless of whether any actual construction is be accomplished or not. Construction signs shall be regularly repositioned in order to warn drivers about upcoming lane closures immediately after they pass the last exit before traffic backups.
  • Driving through constructions zones with upcoming lane closures is a popular game in NM. Itís called the "speed up and pass as many cars as you can, then see how close to the lane closure you can squeeze back into traffic before hitting any of the orange construction barrels" game.

That's part of why i am still @ 4" in the back But with a 1" tcase drop and 4* shim and 1.5" shackle it should be drivable.

edit: I was running 4" of lift with no tcase drop, just the shims and had almost no vibes at highway speed.
