Came out to my jeep at lunch at work to find a TJ on brand new 37s" parked next to it. Had tons of lift, some horrible long arm. no t-case skids, funky crossmember, d30 and d35, wheel spacers, ZJ tie rod, super wide flares. Total mall crawler.

Guy came out to leave while I was looking at it. So I tried to talk to him, he didn't know what gears were in it or if the axles were beefed up at all. By the way it jumped out of the parking space I would say 3.73'a at best.

I didn't even ask him If he wheels it.

His only saving grace was that he's only had it for a few months.
Waste of 37"s if you ask me.

Can you explain this? Never knew you could identify gears in a certain way...

I can tell but the amount of skinny peddle it takes a jeep to get going if its regeared or not.
From there its knowing what was offered in them stock.

Just a complete guess. In first gear he jumped off the line. If he was geared lower, he would have came off the line slower.

I tightened down the front trackbar drop bracket. It still makes a pop noise when turning though. I need to weld that thing down. Brackets shouldn't be bolted.

I also corrected the rear axle thrust angle. :-)

Front track bar drop bracket? The one on the axle end? You can take that off, and ditch the dpa for better steering(unless you are running some other kind of setup, then forget I said anything)

The first use was on a full sized suburban buried to the sand up to the frame. It was under a bridge and I had to use one of the bridge posts to anchor the Jeep with a 30k strap. Jeeps are not heavy enough to just pull one of those things out. Winch did just fine, though.

while removing the CAI to ship to its buyer i noticed my stock harness has the pigtail for the cruise control servo. I then pulled my airbag and found that I also have the correct clock spring for cruise control. Now just to get the servo and switches. Been wanting this for quite some time and finally got around to checking.
