found that out as the day progressed when I went for the first time back in November, but I was pretty nervous when I saw my buddy struggling so I figured I'd just use the lockers, although I didn't need them (like I said after doing the rest of the trails I found that out pretty quickly)

But anyways Jankoid, I was looking at your profile and saw you had a couple things I was thinking about picking up over the summer... How impressed have you been with the currie steering vs. the stock? What springs are you running?

Currie steering is awesome, I have it on my TJ and my LJ. I wouldn't consider any other bolt-on steering. Stock steering blows. You won't see any change other than a huge increase in strength, which is a good thing. I currently run RC springs in both Jeeps, though I did have MetalCloak coils in my TJ for a while and I'm a big fan. I'll be putting MC coils front and rear in my LJ at some point.

I thought about it before I posted, knowing full well you'd say that, but said **** it.

That actually worked out pretty good on the MC coils because I was really looking into those. I already have the control arms from them and they're pretty sweet and not to mention their cs really is awesome. So once my savvy under armor is on and I've recovered from that I'm probably going to invest in the currie steering. It's pricey, but when I get my next set of tires they're probably going to be 35s and my brakes are already prepared so thats all ive really got to worry about is steering for now.

Ask Clay (JCJeep97) what happens with 35s and stock steering. Throw the Currie on there and never worry about it again.

Haha alright I'll do that, can't imagine it was too good at the time. But yeah I'll definitely install that, or the savvy ultimate, when the funds allow it. Gonna definitely take some time to build up the cash with an engagement ring on order though

But that wasn't stock steering. It was an upgraded tie rod with stock size TRE. Had it been stock, it probably would have just bent and we could have pulled it back with the winch. That said, Currie is the best bolt on. (Custom Hi Steer FTW)
