Currectlync HD. It's complete steering components from Currie. It is beef. They replace your original drag link, tie rod, steering stabilizer bracket. It makes it a lot better if you run larger than stock tires. They make them for JK's too. You should look into them.

Ordered my lift and wheels and tires today. Hopefully I'll get them installed saturday and maybe join you guys on your next trip. Btw, Theres a shop out in union hill (about 15 minutes from south hsv) called Victorys ATV and offroad that I highly recommend. My yota friends always recommended them to me but I hadn't used them until today. They matched and beat any deal I could find online for the wheels and tires I wanted.

Saw this the other day and wondered about the reputation.

Yj

I live in Decatur and just traded my 1999 4wd blazer for a 1989 Wrangler last night (plus I got $550 cash). I always wanted a Jeep. My brother and I and some of his freinds went riding up at Windrock, TN this past weekend, it was fun, but I wanted a Jeep so bad. So one of his frineds (who has 5) offered to trade with me so I would have one. We are planning to go to Tuscumbia in a couple of months and ride. In Decatur I have a couple of spots to go, and will be taking the Jeep out test driving this evening......lol. It has a hard top and I ordered a bikini top today and am ordering a 4" lift tomorrow. I should have that and either 33" tires or 35" tires by time we go to Tuscumbia. My brother has a 76 CJ-5 with 44" tires (not sure what the lift is), but it has about 48" of flex and runs on propane (360 V-8). When my 4.2L goes, I will most likely go V-8 and go more extreme with my build......baby steps.....lol

Welcome to the Jeep family! That CJ looks really nice.
Looking forward to seeing what you do with the YJ.

Figure this is the right thread to post up in. I'm 17 live in Decatur, drive a 03 green sahara with a costa del mar and golen stroker sticker on the back. Oh she also have a 4.6l golen stroker in her that i installed myself so just let me know if any of you would like to do some mild wheeling, or shooting. Also i don't know how you guys wheel at stony lonesome i rode my dirt bike up there and it was very treacherous i couldn't imagine wheeling it stock there.

You guys have any useful input for things I should plan for/expect/be prepared for when I'm lifting my jeep this weekend? I'm installing adjustable upper and lower control arms as well and I'm going to do my best to get it near to aligned as possible on my own. Gonna start soaking everything with pb blaster tonight so hopefully I won't break any hardware.

isn't stoney lone mountain that place off I-65S? If so, then yes I went there with my brother back in Dec, and we just went to Windmill Park in TN this past weekend, and plan to go to Tuscumbia in a couple o fmonths....as I mentioned.

Right now, I ordered mirrors that mount on top door hinge and a new valve cover. Just replacing the valve cover gasket on a warped cover, slowed the oil leak down, but did not stop it. I am not a carb man and I am trying to adjust the carb, but some how have it all screwed it. I will get that figured out, but once I have the oil under control and the engine running smooth..... I will be happy. I did not order my lift kit today, because I want to get the engine smoothed out first, but I have settled on the RC 4" nitro lift and 33" tires. I will get the kit, but not install it till I get the tires. Fun times ahead!!!!

Anyone have ideas on tuning the carb? It is a Holley 4412, PO said it is a 600cfm 2 barrel, but I am thinking more like a 500cfm.

Thanks,

Scott

Be prepared for it to take longer and being stressful. Unless, you install lifts on jeeps everyday you're probably not going to get it done in the time is says it shoud take. Be prepared for many trips to walmart/hardware stores. And I would suggest having at least one other semi-jeep knowing friend there to help. They aren't super hard but if it's your first one you will want to take your time. I am by no means a mechanic know it all. I mainly watched three other people put on my lift and learned as much as I could. But now that I have researched a lot more and done other stuff to my jeep myself, it's not such a daunting task. (not saying you are a noob or anything) Good luck!

I'm th guy who recommended he use them and they are all great guys! To be honest they are all jeep guys except for one.. He's a early Toyota 4Runner guy. They all wheel and know the sport in and out and love to help out where they can! So give them a call and if at first they don't beat it give them a try again and they won't let you down!

I've lifted several vehicles before, just not a jeep. So I won't be absolutely lost. I'll chalk it up as another learning experience. I've been soaking all the bolts that will be removed in pb blaster since yesterday so hopefully that will help out.

haha, that didn't take long. Take my advice though, finish the twin sticks on your truck first otherwise they will never get done once you get the jeep.

Alright guys, looks like I'm converting people and bringing them over. Maybe we'll have a bigger group before long.

I'm in south Huntsville. I'm definitely game for some riding. I have 33's on my 2006 TJ and haven't lifted yet so I am taking it a little easy but I am definitely game. Lets get something together.

I have a silver TJ. I was running around all week with her naked. It was a little chilly in the mornings (That's what sleeves are for).

I hated putting the top back on last night!! Looks like the storms are coming though........

Here is a tip that most people forget to do when installing a lift.... put a generous supply of anti seize on the shanks (not threads) of all eight of your control arm bolts as well as your two end trackbar bolts..... If you fail to do this, you will figure out the hard way why this is such an important step in the lift install process.
