Finally think I got the steering dialed in. Had an issue where it was hard to steer, turned out I had too much caster. I dialed it back some and now it drive great.

So I got showed up today on the RTI ramp by a TJ with I believe was a 3" lift and 33s. My leaf springs are holding me back since I pulled the shackle relocation brackets out. I am thinking of going with the liquid iron industries slider box to allow for more down travel. Also I am going to lower the jeep to 5.5 - 6" and trim for 35s, where I am sitting now is just too tall (5.5" leaf spring with 1.5" shackle )

My leafs do not flex well either. I may go stock leaf/relocations/1.5 shackle sometime.

With my old OME springs I ran the RC relocation bracket and 1.5" shackles and it had good flex.

I was thinking it was pretty much just a 1 inch lift shackle on an XJ? Could be wrong

So it appears no one in this city has a digital angle finder in stock... and people wonder why brick in mortar stores are having trouble...

Finally found a digital angle finder today...at HF... oh well. I set my caster to 5* from where it was at around 2*.
