I finally got to drive it last night, i drove it till i couldnt feel my fingers anymore (it was in the mid 30's), i still havent built the rear driveshaft yet so all i had was the front wheels pulling. It drives 100 times better now and feels way more stable at speed, it still needs a few more adjustments in the steering but nothing much.

How do you like those seats? I've been looking at them for quite a while but I've been a little leery since they are so much cheaper than other suspension seats.

i like them pretty well, they look exactly like the mastercrafts but i hear they dont hold up to daily driving, but as far as what i use them for they're great

If Keith doesn't get your thread moved try Eddie (Besrk) he's one of the mods that hangs out in the CJ section allot. Great guy and always helpful.

I'm subscribed now though so I won't be missing too much. Sounds like you like the shackle reversal. You did a nice job of fabbing the parts. After mine is finished I've thought of building a reversal kit and using it for the test bed.

Keep up the great work, and I love the color too.
