Saw that the front tires on my lil Jeep were starting to wear a lil funny.
Found to much toe in thought so. Oh well haven't messed with it since I straightened the steering components since my last Sledgehammer run 4 years ago. Found one loose control arm bolt. The used currie JJ's I bought 7 years ago, are still nice and tight after 7 years and 40.000 miles. Take that MC joints
Of to bubble balance and rotate tires. We will see how that goes. Thought about going wheelin tomorrow, but thinking about staying home and finish yet another remodeling project. It's been a long time since the lil yeller Jeep received any mechanical love

It's my putput to work Jeep. I want to ourboard the rear shocks, other than that I wouldn't mind making a proper 4 link for the rear.
The more I look at the sheetmetal brackets underneath, the less I want to take it on the rocks even though it's a very capable lilttle Jeep

I'm looking forward to having everything done so I can see what a true 4 link feels like over the stock setup

Biggest thing is to get the geometry right, will make the Jeep do things you didn't think were possible

Looks like I going to spend some time building a Landrover Defender, lil project a friend of mine took on. 6BT or a 6 cyl ISB for power some kinda auto trans, Atlas. Coilovers and 4 link rear. Rockjock 60's front and rear. Seems like fun to spend a ton of somebody else's money
