Hey man I beleive I saw this rig on craigslist, decided not to sell it? Just looked at the profile picture and if it was your ad then you made a good decision because it appears to be a sweet zj. What part of NH are you in?

Doesnt seem to have an issue, The jeep is extremely stable for a lifted rig. I do plan to ditch them eventually.

Uploading photos now...
