It's hard to say yet.

It rides great on the trails, far better than it did before. The extra wheelbase, better suspension, outboarded shocks, and vertical coils help with that. Should ride even better once I put some quality shocks up front. Very pleased overall from that standpoint

I can't really say yet how well the suspension performs as I have yet to do any hard obstacles. I'll be able to tell more once I do the ledges next weekend at the jamboree (didn't want to risk doing those since I was out there by myself, they've gotten pretty rough lately).

Biggest complaint I have about the Jeep is actually unrelated to the stretch, and has been present since I built the Jeep last year. The check engine light is on (dont remember the codes), and occassionally the Jeep will stall out when the rpms drop, usually when coming to a stop. On road it never really bothered me (didn't drive it much anyway), but offroad it stalls out often. Even in first gear, as soon as you get on an obstacle and the tires bind up and the rpms drop under a grand, it stalls. It doesn't just putter out like when a car usually stalls out, the damn thing just dies. I'm clueless when it comes to motors and whatnot so I open to ideas on how to fix it. While it is very annoying that it stalls out, it is even more embarrassing than annoying because it makes me look like a total newb with a clutch.

Does it idle low or rough? I guess throttle position sensor.

Got some good wheeling pictures from last weekend at URE. I omitted the best ones though for use in TJotM this month.

Not much really. I want to get some better shocks for the front and replace the worn out RC 2.5" coils and 2" spacers with the RC 4" coils I'll be removing from the front of my LJ soon. It also needs rear flares to match the front. I mainly just want to keep it in one piece while I focus on upgrading the LJ, so no more major mods for a while.

Nice photos man! Rig is looking great, nice and classy looking. Glad to see you out using it and it looks like it's working good. As far as your stalling issue.... the first thing I would do is pull the code, and look it up. One thing I REALLY like about Dodge / Jeep, is that the diagnostic trouble codes usually DO lead you to the problem. If I was making an educated guess though I would say you have an intermittent crank shaft position sensor problem that manifests itself at low RPM. Luckily that part is easily changed and inexpensive. If not that then as the other member suggested, I'd be looking at the TPS, although when I've seen them fail you usually get an abnormally HIGH idle RPM.

sweet TJ! do you have any specs on the skid after you finished it?

What kind of specs are you wanting? It's just a simplified copy of a UCF engine skid and is functionally identical.

the skid looks identical to theirs and I have access to a break so it would save a ton. Not one in my area has one to measure to copy so I didnt know if you did since you had one made

I had measurements initially but they have disappeared, otherwise I would've had more made. I'll try to get some for you later.
