UPDATE: The wobble persists. I now have James's Currie steering since his plans changed and it is very sweet. It has quite a nice feel to it and has improved the dead spot in the center. The steering is a little heavier but is nicer. But, clearly that wasn't the problem. Oh well, I have Currie steering a little sooner than expected. After evaluating everything else, I ordered two new Timken hub assemblies. There is some play in the driver side hub and that's where the wobble is originating from. Those should be here in a couple days and I'll report back.

Wheel bearing, like I've been saying... Hope you enjoy that steering man. I know I was going to. Hopefully doing custom steering won't be as much of a headache as I'm thinking it is going to be.

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

I don't remember man, been way too long. Just buy the set where the range corresponds with your lift height. It doesn't need to be exact. As long as they adjust to keep your sway bar within a 15 degree range from horizontal, then it's fine.

I have a 2.5 rc lift and the 1.25 bl and .75 spacer for up front. debating 33's or 35's. I know about regearing, she will be regeared a couple months after i get everything set up. If i go 35's and trim fender flares, will i need extended bump stops and can i get away with relocation track bar until i get money for a full adjustable one?
Thank you

Right now, I've got 1" of extended bumpstop in the front, which should work fine. The rear has nothing but will probably need somewhere in the neighborhood of 1.5-2". Thanks for the compliments

The jeep was just finished up and the wobble is gone. I'm heading to the Badlands friday morning for some good stuff.

If you have a stock D30 front and stock D35 rear with 3.07 gears I highly suggest not going to 35" tires. Run 33" tires for now, get a D44 rear axle, stronger axle shafts all the way around, regear it, then move to 35" tires.

33's will bog you down with the 3.07 gears but at least you wont be breaking anything.

True story. You will hate life if you don't gear for the tires correctly. 3.07s are terrible for anything over dinky stock tires. Do it right the first time and save yourself money in the long run. It's damn expensive in the short run, but it's worth it.

Thanks guys for your reply...i had a yj with 6in lift and 35's on stock axel and gears for 8 months before gearing it.
It ran fine and strong except for the gas milage. the power wasn't as bad as everyone saids and its most driven on street since im a college student, dont get much time to play. i think im gonna go 33's but i was just asking incase i find a good price on 35's. Thanks for your help guys.

Took her up to the Badlands on Friday with some IndyORV buddies....performed awesome. Tons of belly and diff clearance, bump stops were PERFECT (as you can see)....couldn't even fit my pinky in the wells. And who says under 3" can't flex with 35s....

Does it look like I'm lacking in what you call "flex?"
