I agree with taylor ham, outside of Jersey it's called pork roll. And as far as the State of Emergency I've never seen someone get pulled over for driving in one. They're jokes. I drive to work regardless of weather and road conditions because I have to. I have a "New Jersey Essential Employee" card, but I have never been pulled over in the years of State of Emergency driving in North Jersey. That's crazy they break balls about that by you.

Gonna do a write up? Let me know how that goes, the VC gasket on the driver's side of my wife's rig is leaking again, and I'm thinking if I'm gonna pull the covers again, I may as well do the lash adjusters/lifters.

Here's pics from the bb I installed yesterday. 2" Crown/Rough Trail, 245/65-17 Nitto Terra Grappler AT





Rear links are too short and it rides tight with the Addco rear bar. I just measured and 3" links will fit perfect at 12“ in length bringing it back down to stock geometry. Other than that it rides just like stock and I'm totally pleased. Just wish my lifted zj rode this well lol..

Edit: forgot to mention I'll probably need an adjustable front track bar. The axle shifted to the driver's side about a half inch.

I have the same issue. Need to get a track bar. Gonna have my buddy fab up some link spacers out of solid stock aluminum to drop the stock link bracket 2in. like I have seem some do on here. Do you have any tire rub on bumper cover or the inner fender shields?

Yeah I wasn't expecting to need a track bar at all. Found Zone Offroad rear 3" links for $40 I'm gonna to try. Don't want to rip the link mounts off the body with that addco bar. No rubbing that I've encountered yet, although my tires are just shy of 30".

I never knew that. I thought it was a standalone in Lynn

The zone extended sway bar links won't work with the addco rear sway bar AFAIK That's why people use extenders.

oaklyjeep what happened to the metal mulisha emblem?
