Even with beefy axles and shackles are there any mods to prevent the whole lot from parting company with the frame?

well i have drove it a few times now not as much as i would like still open headers. still nothing over 160 degrees on the temp. my wife said it was like riding in a parade everybody looking and waving. it has a bad tierod end im going to finish the steering with 3/4 hiems anyway but it really drives and rides good. last night my and my buddy unhooked the swaybar and flexed it some to see what it would do and it did as well as his yj. i need to redo my shock mounts the shocks were bottoming out to soon i get that done and it should do really well after that i let my buddy take it down the road and back last night he came back with bugs in his teeth...lol first thing he said was he was amazed at how it road and drove. said he wished his
yj did the same as mine. i am really happy with the out come of this project and i cant wait to give it a test
