I hate the stock system too. hanks man. Enjoyed the read. Subbed and looking forward to more. Hope I get to wheel with you sometime! I have a YJ guy, my best friend, Sparrows, when he wheels make me feel like a total puss as well! hahaha
Ha i was debatin trying to make the yj trip he said you might go! I'll get pics if the strips tonight. The rubi locker mod Essentially bypasses the locker relays and let's you control them with a switch and activate anytime. I dont have a writeup for that i copied one online. To me all 2 doors need to be stretched or converted to long arms... I wheel with mainly yj and tj guys. Only a few jks out here...

Yes! That would be so dope to wheel with you! And trust me I agree with your signature. But being in a jk isn't all that bad. Granted I wish I had the newer motor but creature comforts are definitely nice. Hahaha I'm so glad I have yj and tj guys around or I probably would have never drilled holes and cut and welded parts of the body of my rig. Haha
Did you find the write up on jeep forum? I'm going to look around and see what I can find. My bully dog tuner allows me to do but even with the tune you still need to use the factory switch. Would love to bypass all of that.
Such brilliant ideas man. Really.
Did you weld the basket to the top of that e-auto bumper? Just wanted to make sure I got that correct.
Thanks! Hope to wheel with you soon!

That 5/8 bit you got me did fine. My drag link heims are 3/4 with a 5/8 bore and my tie rod heims are 5/8x5/8 bore.
