Picked up a set of wheels for the 33s today. Hopefully I'll have them mounted soon.

Loving the lift. Rides so much better now! Still haven't put the sway bar and track bar back on, haven't felt any crazy body roll yet so they may not go back on. I did realize that the Brake light was on on the dash. Without my brake on. My dad said he drove it once and let the brake off after backin up with it on. The light never went off. Any one else have that issue?
I had a CJ7 that I drove for a couple of years without the sway bar. Granted, it wasn't my daily driver but I never had any issues with body roll or anything. Please pay attention to the handling and put it back on (with quick disconnects) if you feel that it is unsafe.

As for the brake light, it might be worthwhile to crawl under your Jeep and check that the cables are free of corrosion and mud. If they move freely and are adjusted correctly, you might have a sticky switch. I've never experienced this on a Jeep but I did have a Nissan truck that had the same issue. It turned out to be the switch - it got stuck in the 'on' position.

Good luck, let us know the outcome.

There is a button at the top of the brake pedal lever that is released when you step on the brake pedal. If the switch slides out of its mount, then the brake lights stay on even if you are not stepping on the brake pedal. You may need to reach up and remount the switch.

I believe he's talking about the indicator for the emergency brake, not the brake lights themselves.

Today was a semi-successful day. Wheeled it out at TW Alexander. Had an awesome time! Had two Tjs and a stock Jk rubi with me. They certainly helped me out


The rubi almost did better than us all out there without the lift.

Got myself stuck a couple times but the guys had winches that got their share of use today.



Noticed this when I got home. Tow strap ripped my grill caught it.


Hit a nice hole at some point and bent the passenger side front leaf spring. It put everything in a bind.




Guess I'm calling four wheel parts on Monday. That'll be fun.

We hilifted it and used a winch to pull the inverted shackle down a little.

It got me home okay.

Another trail pic


And while I wait on another leaf spring to arrive, I had my guy whip up some more stickers. Gotta represent the Teenager With a Dream thread.
