We have made it to our house in Athens. This is the first time ive been able to get online. Im sitting in front of lowes using their wifi. Ive seen some nice rigs but I havent had my comanche out yet. Looking for a job tomorrow and getting my license and heading to the pistol store. Picked athens becauuse it was one of the only places we could find a house to rent. I am down to have beer and a fire soon. Bring your rigs!

I'm off all next weekend. It's supposed to be mid 60's too. Glad you had a safe trip. What kind of pistol are you looking for? A good place to check out is Fugates on Highway 11 in Calhoun.. If you need anything or have any questions give me a shout. 423-464-1476

If you get stuck looking for a job peytons in cleveland off the last exit is always hiring and would hold you over until you could find something better. Just let us know im up for a good fire!

Have you got adjustable lower control arms in front? Are all your TREs in good shape? Caster is usually the leading cause of Death Wobble.

How big of a lift are you thinking about doing? Also i have a good stock trackbar and a adjustable one i could give you deal on if interested.

Look into the v8 grand cherokee tierod bar upgrade that way you can get a stronger tierod bar while your at it. My buddy had wobble out of his and he went threw jcwhitney ordered the crown draglink with v8 tierod bar to fix his.

I will look into it. I crawled under the , amche and notice the bottom of the panhard bar moves just a touch, and the drivers side tre was loose. I just went and bought an air compressor and I am gonna tighten it all up and see what happens

Sounds good theres a guy in cleveland that does cheap alignments but idk if you would save much by driving from athens. You could also look up how to do a home alignment on it. Its really easy on these things.

Yeah so turns out I didn't need an alignment, even with the new parts. One of the BFGs in front had a busted belt. I had been barely able to drive it so I couldn't diagnose it. But the guy on Congress Prkwy slapped a new tire on the front right and she'll do 55 now, smooth enough for a Jeep anyway. Meanwhile I found a set of 32x11.5x15 BFGs for $900. way to much but they looked great.

Chris, next time you get some free time I could come up and we can figure out exactly what to order for a lift. I will be getting out of work by 3-4 pm most days
