Picked up an anti-rock sway bar and installed it last night! Ended up shearing off a bumper bolt so I'll have to get that out so I can put my steering box skid and winch back on. Overall impressions of the anti-rock is that offroad it's a major difference! It's much more stable and I have better control. On the road is not as bad as I thought. There is a little bit more sway, but less that being fully disconnected. I suppose having a low center out gravity helps!

Do you have the ultra-high clearance ucf skid? If so how does the cat fit and how much room is there between the tub and the t-case? I'm looking at doing the same set-up but with no body lift, so just curious on how the clearance is on yours. Sorry for all the questions. Jeep looks great! I really like the flares and wheels!

I have the ultra high clearance UFC skid! I had to trim the heat shield above the cat, it would make contact and rattle. By the way I have a 1.25 body lift which helps a lot.

Added a skid plate to the Dana 35! Perfect for jeeps with small lifts. Any other type of cover would hit the gas tank skid.

Finally decided it was time to get new O2 sensors for the jeep. Kept getting check engine codes for the jeep the past year. I went with NGK O2 sensors because they are the OE ones. Install was easier than I thought. The hardest part was figuring where to find room for the ratchet.

The front was causing the codes


Back one looked okay but I decided might as well replace both at the same time.


Then took it for a ride to test the difference and I can tell I've gotten some loss power back (at least I think). Also it's much smoother between shifts too!


Also while taking it out for a test ride I took it up to 85 mph haha

Went to the 5th annual Matanzas Jeep Club show and shine. Awesome turn out and helped Badfish Powder coating display their work from my jeep! Also got to see Kraken in person, it's big... really big!
