The anti-rock isn't really planned, I think it will be somewhat stable w/ the leaves in the rear, so I'll have to wheel it a bit before I feel the need to get one.
You'll learn this the hard way, but I'll point you in the right direction. If you get leaf packs compliant and flexible enough to work well, they lack the so called "inherent" stability of leaf springs.

I've worked with leaf sprung rigs a bunch and if you get them where they articulate well, they need swaybars. It's just about that simple.

Yeah, as I was typing that post I was thinking about that. I would be able to pretty easily fit a rear swaybar if I need to.

I ripped off the factory tire carrier, took off the 3rd light, made a angle bracket to mount the 3rd light, hear some squeaking ~ turned the stereo up louder and it went away

Made brake lines for my TJ today

For info on the line lengths, hoses, and sizes of everything check out my build thread... I'll be posting that info there shortly.







Used all pre-flared hard line so I don't have to trust my life to my flaring abilities(or lack thereof)

Destroyed another set of RE superflex bushings. That's 2weeks of DD, and one wheeling trip. I'm on the 3rd set in 3monthes.
I made the jig to keep the arms uniform for a set of JJ's to replace the RE bushing sleves.

That is exactly why I replaced those RE Arms. Clean 'em up, sell 'em, and get something better

Made an ipod touch holder also downloaded a kick a$$ app for it. Made the holder out of aluminum with a waterjet cutter and painted it with acid etch paint. Anyone know how to boost the wi-fi with this thing because i would like to get better reception on the mapping/gps.
