Its funny it took so long to find one to do side by sides. WK's are literally a dime a dozen around here. Must make yours stand out even more!

I wanted to but I had to start off slow. The didn't want another beastly Jeep to drive around everyday. And now even though they look similar height, the WK is easier to get in and out. The XJ has a lot more undercarriage clearance and the bottom of the door sill is a couple inches higher compared to the WK. Plus I wont be rolling on the 35s all the time.

Well same here. They are everywhere! It is finding one parked (with no one in it ) and room around it to park and take good pics that was a challenge. We pulled up next to one the other day that was in a perfect spot for comparison pics, but once I was beside him realized some one was inside still

I haven't had a chance to upload these until now. On Thursday after finishing up changing the fluid in the front diff (which is a little more difficult now with the SL crossmember) I took the fam out for a late afternoon ride.






I found a pile of rocks where I was finally able to flex this thing out to the max!















At full stuff in the rear I still have some wiggle room. So as I was hoping I get to chop down these massive 4" bumpstop extensions. I think I will go 1/2" at a time until I can stuff a tire like I used to be able to. What sucks is having to remove the coils to get to the bumpstops. Also once I swap put the 11" rear shocks for a set of 12" I will has more down travel which would have kept the tire on the ground in those shots. I am looking for a good deal now. I found a guy in LA with a brand newish set who wanted $300, bit they were the wrong valving. I really want to find a set with blue parts like I have now, but that might be hard since all the ones they have made for the past year or more have been black. So let me know if anyone finds some please!!!

Nice flex Nate! Was that with both sways connected? The front diff should be easier now with the SL drop. If you look right above the crossmember you'll see the fill plug. I use a spout with a 5/8" plastic tube and squirt it home.

The rear was connected but I am not running the sway bar up front. It seems to be a very nice combo. I still want to get my JKS quicker disconnects back into the rear.

The front is easier to fill now, but the fill plug is more difficult to reach with a wrench. Before I was able to reach and work the allen from below, but now the crossmember interferes and I have to come from the top with it. Not sure that makes sense without seeing it. I will grab a pic or two I was thinking that for the next service I world cut a 1" piece off the allen and use an end wrench. Then I can reach from the bottom.

Nice! Yeah I use a 14mm Allen headed socket and use a 14mm or 9/16" open end wrench to loosen it. Have you undone some of the rear ELSD diff waiting yet? I've disco'd it a couple quick connectors and its still kinda tight when flexed.

Not sure what you are asking? Have I disconnected the rear sway?


On another note, does anyone know the PN for the isolator bushing on the front of the diff, you know the more expensive one that bolts on?

Great looking shots as always!

For the P/N I believe it is: 52114354AA - I just ordered one from http://www.justforjeeps.com/fraxmobr.html last week, hopefully gets rid of the clunk!

I'm talking about the wiring to the ELSD connector on the rear diff.

Hey Nate, how did you take the antenna mount off when you put your stripes on?
