what is screwed??

I put a 2'' spacer lift on the (rear end) and new springs (front end) my 98 TJ two days ago, and three times since then i have had a really bad vibration in the steering wheel and front right tire. It is sever enough that i have to pull over but it immediately stops after that. It does not start at a certain speed but seems to come randomly at speeds anywhere from 35 to 60. any help here would be great, cause the only lead I have so far is possibly the horizontal shock on the steerage links. I still have stock 30x10.5 if your wondering.

Do a search for death wobble, very common occurance with Jeeps and seems to show up mostly when the suspension has been altered, there is lots of good information on how to fix it here. Good luck.

Finished installing my 2" BB, now I need bigger tires!!

I also found a guy locally selling a Powertrax Lock Right for a Dana 30; was it coincidence that earlier today I was trying to go up a hill and failing to get to the top because I was losing traction up front? Friday I pick up the Lock Right, then soon I'll install it.

I also won an eBay auction for a brand new 20,000 lb rated military 4" recovery strap (OD green, not yellow) for $12...

My Jeep transformation has just started...

i can get some pics..what ya looking for..the way and where i mounted it underneath im sure..thanks for the flowers..
my dad has had this gold speacial edition mack dog for years,i allways wanted it..25 years later he just gave it to me..i drilled it underneath for a 1/8 inch line and hooked it up to my washer fluid resivoir if you look close and now he can piss on fords lol..little kids get a kick out of it.
i used 1/2 inch nylon spacers underneath and belt sanded to match the angle of his feet to match the hood..worked out great..thanks for the compliment.

i found out the other day the gold ones where seling for 100 bucks and higher..figure someone will break it off and rip up my hood someday..john

Took the top down. The wife and I took it out for some mud road fun. I told her that I would wash it so that her and my daughter could drive it. She said NO!! we will just get it dirty again. Really suprised me.

Thats a good idea, put a hood ornament on a Jeep since we have nothing to begin with we can be VERY creative

No no no no I mean nothing on teh hood of a Jeep to start with, not nothing at all to start with. I own a 01 Jeep, a 89 Chevy S-10 Blazer 4x4, and 05 Chevy Malibu, Theres no way I would EVER own a Ford, to me thats the F word.

My Blazer has 175k on it and will out pull any Ford with a standard V8 or under, my Jeep has a Brand new Crate motor (2.5) in it due to a Fram oil filter, the Malibu so far hasn't been with us long enough to need anything yet, but the Jeep gets all the TLC I can afford to drop into it.

Today I removed teh zippers from the 2 rear roll bar pads I took off and started looking around for new zippers, my wife said if I get em she can sew themn in

gone somewhere else
