Thanks man. It sure has come a long way. Sometimes I just look at the pictures I have of it when I first got it and then look out the window at it. Its like watching a child grow.

I'm REALLY debating buying the JKS track bar with Kevin's bushings very soon. The frame side bushing on the stock track bar just seems really soft in my opinion. When I reinstalled the track bar today it seemed like it had more give than it should. Maybe I'm crazy?

Reason I'm thinking about buying the JKS bar is if the stock bar still ends up giving me death wobble, I'd end up paying for 2 alignments instead of 1.

i bought my jks track bar from kevins when i had my bb. When i ordered the tb i also ordered kevins super duro bushings just in case i needed them. I went two years on the jks bushings, they finally went bad when i moved up to 4.5 in of lift and caused some dw. I dug kevins bushings out of my jeep parts tub and put them in the tb and it was an instant cure. Id buy another jks tb in a heartbeat if i had to so go for it. Only thing is, most alignment shops wont adjust your tb for you. Unless its a 4x4 shop that knows better. But most alignment equipment wont measure axle position compared to body position. Its something better done with a tape measure and a buddy before you take for an alignment. Oh and you have another pm.

That's good to know. I mean this stock track bar has 140k on it and has gone through MANY cases of death wobble. So I could maybe see why it could be soft and giving me trouble. Good logic or no?

yeah i would say thats good logic. I had about 50k on my jks bushings and they were fine up until the point I had a tre go bad and cause some dw. I delt with it for 2 weeks then replaced the tre, but still had slight dw. thats when i replaced the jks bushings with KOR. So I think its safe to say that in your case with 140k and "many" cases of DW that your stock tb bushings have seen better days. Plus im sure you plan on getting a bigger lift at some point. So the jks tb is just one less thing to buy. That was my logic.

Only thing I'm worried about is if I'll still have at least 1 inch of lift with these bumpers on. The JKS bar is from 1 to 6 inches of lift.

Should be able to check your hub to fender measurements and get a good idea. I can't imagine the bumpers would have dropped you that far...

Yea, I don't think the bumpers would make me lose an inch and a half of lift. I actually just ordered the JKS bar and bushings from Kevin's about 10 minutes ago.

Yea, no more job after this week though. So no more jeep parts. All the money now is getting saved for what I need at school. I'll have a little over 1k saved up for my last semester after my last check.

Got everything installed on the front. Been watching my temp gauge real close as well and it hasn't seen past 210, so I guess its good to go.

Just got one simple shot of the front for now. My girlfriend just went out and bought a new Canon T2i DSLR, so I'll probably take some good pictures of everything with her new high dollar camera. Can finally get some good night shots to show the light output.
