Going back to stock? Probably a good idea. Makes wheeling more fun

The ones who know how to drive in it here stay home to avoid the majority that dont

It really doesnt matter where you live, people in CT that have lived here their entire lives still dont know how to drive in snow

I'd love to see some of the snow you guys get in CT, I live in SW Michigan so I get a lot of lake effect snow, but nothing compared to what the NE US gets. I just wish I lived closer to any form of mountains so I can do some serious winter wheeling. I was stationed in Jacksonville, NC while I was in the Marines. I miss hitting Uwharrie on the weekends.

Just head up north 3 hours and you will be into the deepest snow in the Midwest. Most the time there's 3-4 feet at my house. We've already had a storm that dropped 6".

This is from last weekend.

I think it's time for my front track bar to retire.....too much play in the bushing on the axle side, and honestly, it's been preventing me from taking the Jeep on any long drive. I am open for suggestions for a decent replacement.

Looks like a good setup, however, I'm not sure if I want to stick with rubber bushings at all. I think I am going to try to aim for something with a heim joint.

You got many miles out of your stock setup though, eh? Rubber bushings are a lot cheaper to replace too.

But there's this: http://www.ruffstuffspecialties.com/...anhardtrackbar pretty good deal on quality parts, but you really have to know your stuff to get it right (and safe). Since all your angles looked decent iirc, I would probably lean toward an out of the box product. The only one I have experience with is RC, and you know how I feel about them lol.

I think I might have to do a little more research on a panhard, not exactly sure of the pros and cons of this type of setup. Looks good too, and yes, my front trackbar is still the original OEM one. Many miles on this sucker
