This first picture is wierd because it looks like the GC is low in the rear but thats because I was parked on a curb. The second picture shows how well it balanced out better.





Handled surprisingly well. I will post up pictures of the brake controller soon. It was really easy to wire up...I think the previous owner had one. But for all the WKs, its pretty much already set up

You should consider Air lift or Firestone Ride Rite Towing air bags. They squeeze inside the rear coil springs and you pump them up to keep the rear end stiffer and level when towing. I have them in my stock wk and when at full psi (35 lbs max) It actually lifts my WKs rear end about 4 to 5 inches. They work great and only cost about $100. I have the firestone kit and others on JU have the air lift kit.

Thats actually not a bad idea. I guess I didnt even know they made something like that. Do you think it would have any affect on the jeeps offroad capability when not towing?

They shouldnt. They replace the bump stop in the coil spring. They compress almost all the way when not aired up and you can adjust how much they compress buy adding or removing air. So they can technically be an air adjustable bump stop.

They should, i dont see why a regular wk setup would not work on yours.

You might want to give Russ at 4xGuard a call. I am pretty sure he uses some kind of bag for his.
