I'd love for you to actually tell us what all you did or installed. It looks like something to do with power steering, but it's not something I have any personal experience with regarding what all was done or why.

Did my first rear brake (drum) job. What an insane contraption drum brakes are. Didn't really have any problems since I used the 4x4xplor right up. It did get me thinking though...someone actually designed this and then someone else actually put it on a vehicle. Looking forward to my axle upgrade and then putting on disc brakes.

Nice. Is that a package deal, or do you piece that together? Do you have a link?

Were you having a hard time with power steering on the road? I know I could definitely use some more strength in the rocks...

Yesterday - Took out the windows and drove home! So glad it's almost summer!

Today - Heard a knock coming from the valve cover so I took it to my good friend at the garage. Figured while it's there might as well have them install my front Aussie Locker and replace the axle seals. Headed to Badlands this weekend!

You do know we're not intimately familiar with your Jeep, right? We won't necessarily know what "this" is. So, what, you took the back seat out?

So what are "these" exactly? Some sort of fixed upper or lower controls arms?

Picked up my new tires and wheels today! And since Firekite is the detail nazi today, they're 33x12.5r15 Cooper stt's with 15x8 American Racing chamber teflons. No camera and my cell camera wouldn't take the pic for some reason, so no pics yet. I'll try to get some though.
