Bringing this thread back with some updates.
Since the last post, I have been having some wheel balancing problems to say the least. Brought the jeep to my guy who did the original dynobead, wheel, tire install 22k miles back. He put surface applied wheel weights on the inside and out... He said it was the only way to re-balance them. Looks bad and was still wobbling till I rotated them a few times. Seems to work well now.
I looked at the steering since the alignment rack said I was a bit toe-d out. The currie correct-lync steering is designed to work with a ~4" lift, so at the shortest adjustment, I wasn't adjusted correctly, plus my wheel was at a 45* angle which was messing with my head while driving. This weekend, I took about a half inch off the drag link adjustment sleeve and half inch off the tie rod. I re-installed and did a 1 man alignment using the most random items to mark a line around the circumference of the tire in wet paint.
Also, in the last few weekends I have mounted the source tank in the "bed" of the Jeep and the first of two ammo cans mounted to the cage with some tube clamps. Drove the jeep last week with full doors, safari top and wrap around windjammer while it rained all week. I didn;t get to wet but love the "truck" feeling.
I have been thinking about selling the full soft top and running a modified hardtop or LJ hardtop for winters from now on, but need to find a top that needs work or a LJ top that the owner does not think it worth a brick of gold. I doubt it will happen for this winter, but we can hope.
I should be picking up some used suspension seats this week. Also, working on an idea for some inners fenders with a member on here, then new exhaust install (maybe fm 40 or 50) and get winch back to working and wheeling time will be here.
