Absolutely- the LTSA setup that I bought from MC came with new, pre-adjusted trackbars, so the axle centering was taken care of (although I did verify).

As for the toe-in, I am positive that it is in... I actually took the Jeep in to have the alignment checked, and the owner (40+yrs experience) said that the toe-in only equates to like 1/6 of a degree and would not be affected by the lift. He even took the time to put it on the rack to show me my concern was unfounded.

Since damiendrt didn't change any steering components, alignment is not necessary...only re-centering the steering wheel.

Finally replaced the O2 sensor that's been tripping my CEL.

Hopefully that will stop that code for more than a day.

Every review and personal account I have seen says they are trash and not worth the time or effort to put them. I am curious about what the difference will be with the auto lites!!!

I had split fires in before the app985 big difference.

Just curious, with a. Swing out tire carrier, what benefit is the drop down tailgate?

I really want to change mine to that style, but don't know what to do with my spare.

I just like it to sit on. A cool drink and a hang out spot. The ultimate mod.

Fair enough! Mount a bottle opener on that tire carrier and you've got a one stop shop.

That's on my list too... Even with a bumper that has a swingarm tire carrier, I whack the snot out of my tailgate on the hinge spindle everytime I open it.

Was it a PITA to install?? Is it 'slamable'? Or do you need to hold it closed, and secure the latches manually??
