Your rig is grossly awesome. It makes ME want to drive over ****.

It obviously flexes like a beast. How does it ride on the road? I would expect it to be like riding on a giant water balloon. How are those heims holding up? I ask because my buddy used heims for steering stuff, and went through them like crazy.

on road ride is actually pretty nice. there is obviously a fair amount of body roll when cornering. ive adjusted to it, but there are plans for mocking up a rear sway bar.

steering feels nice and night, could be just the quality of the heims. i use all ruffstuff heims for steering and suspension.

Is it the pic that makes it look like the rear does more work than the front?

What was your separation for the front frame and axle?

The rear does work a little faster than the front. And that's because of the weight difference. One reason I'm considering a rear sway, to slow it down.

Axle is 8.5-9 frame was 5 or 6? If have to measure again.

possibly, the $500 for the universal kit is a little hard to swallow. and i would just have to fab a way to mount it up. which i think i could mount it under the framerail under the gas tank

I'm finding it hard to find people with modified XJ's around Warwick/West Warwick. I'll have to go check out his build right now!
