It's in the original thread, so it's possible to miss.
My friend Jason knew someone in Vermont that had it. The guy bought it in 2008 and never used it, so Jason went and asked the guy what he would take for it. When he told him $200, Jason couldn't get money out of his pocket fast enough.

Got a dropped track bar bracket from Fat Bob's Garage, installed that and new rear driveshaft U Joints. The front axle is now centered!



The wheel is turned like this, until I go for an alignment


And a quick pic of the H4 conversion AutoPal housings with Putco harness and 130w/100w Hella Yellowstar bulbs

Wheels and tires are here today!
Alignment at 6pm (friend at big name tire shop doing it for $20)!

The rear end has settled down some, so it doesn't look ridiculous anymore.

Yessir. They will be on later, but I am having the alignment done with the wheels on it now, I don't want the alignment arms to mess up the new paint on Canyons!

Stock track bars blow! I went threw 3 on 31s, Add a HD adjustable track bar and bracket to your list.

Lift your jeep up on jack stands
2 5/8 bolts and a pipe wrench adjust the drag link sleeve till your wheel is centered.

Profit.
