The rear shocks were sitting at 80psi and only about 2" of up travel. We upped it to 120psi and got the desired 4" of up travel. The passenger side was a hair lower so we went up to 128 on the passenger side and that evened it out.

Noticed 2 things on the way home. The ride was much smother which meant I had been bottoming the rear suspension.
On the bad side, it feels like it needs a sway bar now especially during right turns. I'm guessing the increased pressure in the passenger side is trying to unload.
Any help here would be much appreciated.

The motorcycle mirrors worked out really nice. I use motorcycle fender lights on my fenders since I cut off the side markers.

I've had those mirrors for a few years and I swear I get more comments and" where can I get those" than anything else on this Jeep.

Got the 4tire balanced today. The first three took about 3-4 oz. the last one Took 16oz. Wheel looked strait. The tire was hoping on the machine. Not sure if it needs to be broken down and spun or what?

Since I have the new tires and the air shocks are set I thought I would take some final measurements.
Approach angle= 70deg
Skid pan clearance= 18.5"

Only two days until I head out west across I20. Anyone know of any long stretches between gas stations I should be aware of. Never driven through TX. I should get 150 miles on my fuel cell and another 50 with my gas can. Taking the Jeep to a local shop for a once over at my wife's request today.

650. That's a good day. The Jeep must be working just fine.
