I swear I just saw a brand new pair of black JWSpeaker lights in the pirate classifieds yesterday or day before. I just checked really quick and couldn't find them, they may have sold.

Maybe, I need to get to Missouri to see my family next weekend.

Got a pair of clear Led turn signals for the Jeep. They are JK replacements. Guess I will see if I can smoke them this week and get them installed by the weekend.

Nope, just was raining when I shut off the Jeep.


The wheel balance seemed to help, she drives smooth other than the hop from the bent shafts in the rear. Another week or so before I can order those. Hoping to regear at the same time. Maybe some lockers next year.

Sorry if you've been over this but this thread moves fast. What tire pressure are you running? I could see that being just as important as the shocks or springs in regards to ride quality. I see that your axle is bent but as a tire man I see wheels bent as bad or worse than that on a daily basis that get no ride quality complaints after balancing. (to my surprise in a lot of cases). With the light rear end of your rig I would think something as low as 20psi could be your optimal street pressure with those tires. Just a thought I had....

Edit: I just looked up the load index and speed rating of those tires and it's 124Q, with each tire having a load capacity of 3525lbs @50psi. I would say that you are safely running less than a 1/3 of that per tire.

Very valid point

I run 20psi in my 35" kevlars. My jeep is pretty light. Any higher and it rides like crap

And I have no funny wearing at all after 8,000 miles and not a single rotation

I have been running 28psi, I will try 20. Is 20 psi safe, I do drive lots of hwy miles at 70-75 mph.

26-28 on my kevlars for 22k mileage. It was the best wear when I did the chalk test for my relativity light LJ.
