Now that I have a few miles driven my initial impressions are as follows:
1. Gear selection of 4.56:1 seems perfect. At 70 MPH (GPS verified) the engine is turning a happy 2550-2600 RPM. In stock configuration I was at 2450-2500 at 70 MPH. Highway drivability is near perfect.
2. Concern over Detroit locker in front axle seems to be a non-issue. I haven't totally ruled out concern and will not until I can make a run in 4 high at moderate speed to be sure the computer doesn't have a problem. But, on the street, no issues at all thus far.
3. 4" Evo plush ride coil springs. These things are awesome! I have never rode in a Jeep with such a smooth, soft comfortable ride. I love them so far, interested to test them on the trails.
4. Currie front Antirock swaybar. I can feel it is not as ridged as stock but not to the point of uncomfortable. Took a little getting used to going into turns but I'm sure this is not just the antilock. Tire pressure, springs, etc all weigh into the equation. Over all I'm quite pleased with the road manners and am thrilled to have it back on the road.
Closing thoughts...Damn does that front bumper look naked without a winch. Fenders were at the top of my wish list. However, I may need to adjust my priorities.
