Stop it! Of course he did, but if we live vicariously through him we will not have to purchase another set ourselves. Besides, Pitbulls and Iroks were made by Chuck Norris to be extremely badass

I see you got your TeraFlex shock bar installed, I just got mine installed to. From what people told me a out putting the shocks on an angle it seems the jeep should ride better due to less valving in my stiff white shocks, my jeep actually seems to ride a bit firmer. Did you notice any ride quality difference with the shock bar installed and your shocks on a angle?

:EDIT: Oh, what shocks are you running?

Yeah I have only had the 35s for maybe a month and a half lol I sell tires for a living so its hard to say no when you only pay 10% over store cost! And with my shock setup out back my ride is actually a bit softer (which was welcome) and not only that I gain a good amount of droop for the shock bar. What Setting do you have yours set at? I have my on the middle hole!

I was thinking of doing the same thing with my trail pipe, my shackles always hit it when I flex out enough.

Hey compared to when you didn't have lockers how much better is your Jeep when offroading? I'm asking because this past weekend I was wheeling with some guys, one guy in a cherokee had a rear locker and another was fully locked YJ with 35s. I have no lockers and I was considerably more capable then the cherokee and I did everything the the fully locked YJ could do, rocks, mud, and sands climbs. I'm thinking now that a locker really isn't worth the money to me. Thanks for any input man!

It all comes down to where you wheel really, I would't trade my locker for anything! Sure you where going the same place the locked Yj was going but I am guessing you had to have a lot more wheel speed and momentum the bye did? Out here in the PNW you constantly have a tire in the air which is where it is really nice to have lockers! Plus they allow you to do stuff like this!

I wheel the same terrain you do, (we both live in Michigan) and I have a CJ that is fully locked on 35's and my Yj that is open/open on 33's, I'll tell ya, lockers are worth the money! My Cj will go places my YJ won't even think about going. I plan on front/rear lockers for my YJ here soon!

That's what they are there for lol fine tuning the shock setup! I have't tried any other setting on the bar because I was so happy with the out come!

Like I said I would't trade my lockers for anything! The only thing that truck might good for is towing the Yj long distances to new orv parks

Hell that's half the fun! Look at Jake: he has more fun then the both of us put together haha! Another bonus is not having a locker makes you think more and pick better lines.

Lol what? Since when? Last time I checked most of the pnw trails are a cakewalk because orv management is ghey...

Tires are to Zte87 what cake or beer is to Zte87 ;P haha

Yeah putting the shocks at an angle makes them less effective and softer. Also hotter if you are into going fast.
The only reason I can think that your shocks got stiffer is you have some binding. Are your mounts 90 out? Did you move the mounts further out on the axle?
Is it stiff only over items like speed bumps and soft on potholes?

Everything is cake to use because we have ran the trail so many times that we know exactly what line to take and what line not to take, we just need to bit up some new orv parks haha!

I forgot you have been wheeling the tj lately which would explain why you don't remember what it's like have air under you tires but I will give you the tire comment hahaha I am not out alot of money when I buy new tire tho after selling my 33 inch toyo's I acutely had left of money after buying the 35's

Yes I did turn my shocks 90*, but I did not move them from the axle much and yes it is rough over speed bumps. I'll have to play with it more.
