This post is full of win.


Incredible build man. I'm sure it was an incredible thing to step back and realize she was built and ready to wheel. My hat goes off to your creativity and fabrication skills.

You are welcome.
Drove the beastie to work last night and it was all over the road, did some adjusting as far as lowering the front an inch, centering the rear axle and moved the anti rock links 2 holes in and this made a world of difference.
Much happier, put a restrictor in the tail pipe to see if that helps torque a bit, since I have no muffler on it just the precat and the cat, will see how that does tonight on the way home. It's definitely spunkier, I can use top gear now

I do daily drive it every so often, but then it's a short hop from where I live to the airport where I work

Both Wranglers that I have owned have been 4cyls too. Offroad the do just as well as 4.0's as long as you have em geared right. Did you swap in the 6 speed yet?

Nope, the one I bought is for a Rubicon, doesn't fit a 4 banger so as soon as that one sells I'll buy one for a 4 banger.
It scoots along pretty good on 37's as it is.
Messed today with the rear upper control arms raised them up one more hole on the frame side which turned into an all afternoon project.
I guess in the next couple of days I'll try to see if that helps it climb really steep stuff better.
