OP: LJ looks great. I'm jealous of the wheelin' without the windshield, but I don't think I'd have enough luck to get it to bolt back up easily once I was off the trail. Can't wait to see more pics of it!
Thanks. I really like driving without the windshield. I am hoping to never wheel with it up again. Pics to follow.....

I have been researching pricing on whether to replace me worn out bushing on the front fixed control arms (RE Superflex 3.5" lift) or whether to replace the front LCA with savvy/currie adjustables...

I just bought the Currie front LCA/UCAs. I'm happy to mention that the hype is all well deserved. One vote for them

Thanks. I am still waiting to find out how much a set of bushing cost.... But The tool to change them is 1/4 of the cost on a set of two new arms..... So we will see soon. Also, It would be a great upgrade for adjust ability sake.

I like them a lot on every terrain that I have tried them on so far.... except mud. To me, you have to get a lot more wheel spin to clean them out than my old KM2s. But in every other respect, I love them. And they are quieter (on road/interstate) than the KM2s. I would purchase them again.

They have a Seachers 4wd sticker on them (just like my cage). I believe searchers is a jeep company out of Baton Rouge, LA (who goes to/participates in a lot of jeep event in LA). Either way, the rockers have held up very well to my driving and the only damage is a loss of paint.

Just booked my ticket to the cajun jeep jamboree in Beautiful St Francisville in April. I have heard about this jamboree since I was in college and have wanted to go since I have had a heep.

Anyone else in the south in?
