That's crazy. Mine is good now though zero flex back there when I pick up the Jeep from the receiver hitch.

Leaning towards new XJ packs with an added main leaf and a shock tune in the rear. Some 5:13 gears and Ten factory shafts. A locker if I can swing it.

Then a pair of 150 lb springs up front on top of my 200lb springs and a shock tune. Then some 5:13 gears up front. No locker because I plan on putting a Jk44 up front sometime next year.

Still debating JWSpeaker headlights. 700.00 headlights hurt.
Still need to purchase another 37 for a spare.

Other than those big purchases I am pretty much finished buying parts for the Jeep. It's just all about getting them installed and making everything work together perfectly.

All that does is add weight for very little strength gain.

Have you thought about doing some HID lights?

A guy retrofitted some projectors into TJ housings and it looks pretty cool. It can be done for ~$300

Yeah, I also looked at the new LED bulbs to fit in H4 housings. Just don't know if they actually work.

They have a LED that fits those housings now. Thinking about testing those. They run about 150 a pair fir the bulbs.

Yeah, watched the YouTube video on those. I know some people have not had good luck with them.

The next gen are supposed to be better, but they are half the price of JWSpeaker.
