sh**can and replace dude lol

FYI you probably won't be able to get it to do it by hand unless its completely FUBAR. There's an aweful lot of force on that joint. Its essentially the achilles heel of 5 linked front ends.

It still needs some wire wheel/TLC, but overall not too bad.

I haven't weighed the removed parts, but I doubt if its the ~100 lbs folks claim.

Like mentioned from others, its not too difficult, but it certainly shouldn't be super easy either. The up & down as depicted in the post by Jason is a no-no.

Gotta run.......

I ordered the track bar this morning. $60 including shipping. I figure there was no point in upgrading parts while its a dd and stock.

I did lighting and sound when I was high school. Definitely not that hard or technical but it was fun. A lot of plays and the occasional concert. I miss it every once in a while when I'm at a concert or something.

That's pretty cool. Did you continue what you did in high school, in college? Or was it something different? I'm not entirely sure how that works. One of the reasons I didn't keep going with it. Didn't know where I could find the info I needed

I did the ROP program and now I have some certification for "Stage Craft". Not entirely sure if its good for anything anymore or even if it was to begin with haha.

So my baby sister turns 50 Saturday, big birthday bash much booze consumption catered thingy Saturday night.

She has an '05 TJ on 33's basically stock. Some of you have met my oldest sister (Yellow '05 LJ) and my little sister out at Anza Borrego.
I want to get her an off road related gift but not too expensive so as to make others uncomfortable kinda' thing.
I was thinking an air down tool like the one I have. They are only about ~$35.
Any other ideas, besides giving me crap for waiting until the day before the party? I'm already getting that from HQ.

Lights, a Hi-Lift Jack, Offroad extraction kit (shovel/axe/hammer/straps/etc), a good comprehensive First Aid kit, a sheep blow up doll for the passenger seat..........wait that's for secret santa.....never mind. Something useful to keep her safe or to get her there is what I'd suggest. Body styling and stuff is too much of a personal step for each Jeep owner.

I never use the app on my phone. its a real POS. i just use the website. works fine for me.

Things to check for Death Wobble:
track bar upper and lower
control arm bushings
caster angle
ball joints
tire balance
Drag link rod ends
tie rod, rod ends
sloppy steering box
stabilizer and brackets


While a stabilizer might mask the problem, it won't fix it. if suspension and steering are properly setup, you won't need one

NICE illustration!! You've got all right, Jason, except you have the acceptable axis reversed. Many TREs are made with what is called a "gusher" bushing, which is spring loaded in the B axis. It may be compressible with a big pair of pliers, even when new. ANY movement in the A axis, Buh bye. I have found, over my 40 years in this biz that any TRE that you can move by hand is no match for the forces encountered on the car.

Charlie's book."The Guide to off road trails...." of something like that. Or a magazine sub. Or, a soft-side cooler.

I like the air down tool idea. Maybe some paracord grab and door handles? Spare u joints?

I enjoy extra parts for my Jeep but I really appreciate when people get me every day maintenance parts. I got a thermostat two Christmases ago and windshield wipers every year. It's allows me to be enjoy my Jeep a little more when some of the little things are talking care of.
