Figured id give alittle update..

Been having some pretty bad issues with the death wobble lately after the lift. The first thing I found was a loose track bar bolt. Tightened it, death wobble almost went away completely but theres still a shimmy around 55. It wont go into full blown death wobble unless I hit a bump PERFECT and its very rare.

Things Checked:

-TREs
-Ball joints
-All bolts
-Alighned
-Tires balanced

Not really looking for a solution at the moment because I dont have the money to fix it anyways but if anybodys got any ideas im all ears.

Many of us replaced the track bar bushings in our JKS bars with KOR bushings. That could help you out...

Picked up a double cardon driveshaft, gas cap, tcase skid, and tow hooks today for 60 bucks. Score! Whenever im not broke im going back for the DANA 44, the 242HD, the grill and the rear drive shaft. All of it came out of an 03 Overland.

I'll post up some pics later when im not on my phone.

Its been a busy weekend, I replaced my tie rods, cut my fenders and destroyed another rzeppa drive shaft out on the trails!

These are kinda halfway through the process pics. We grinded them down to even and then used auto trim to make the edges look good.






A few pics from the trail..














The aftermath..
