I would have brought your thread back to life if I would have found it

Anyhow, if you would humor me...
After 3 years:
Is it daily driven?
If so, how many miles?
How does it drive compared to stock?
How much wheeling? What type (mud or rock)?
Any bushing problems?
Any other comments?

Is it daily driven?

-> Yes, to work, around town, and to off roading sites.

If so, how many miles?

-> 12 mile round trip to work. 13.5K miles since install.

How does it drive compared to stock?

-> I actually like it better than stock. We converted from a short arm setup. My wife, who never comments on Jeep mods, raved about the suspension on our first trip out. The occupants just don't get "beat up" like they did with the short arms.

How much wheeling? What type (mud or rock)?

-> We try to get out whenever we can. Mostly desert (Johnson Valley, Stoddard Valley) but also some mountains (Big Bear). Mud is evil. My daughter did find some mud out at Johnson Valley once. What a mess!

Any bushing problems?

-> Nope, none. But, we maintain them regularly.

Any other comments?

-> I was skeptical about the tri-link for a while before install. Really struggled back and forth. At one point, I actually placed an order for the arms to convert it to a non-tri setup. Jason at RedRock4x4 called me on the phone and talked me out of it. I'm really glad he did. We'd do it again.
