It looks like something is wrong with your allignment or something because your 35's look crooked from the front.

Yep. Alignment is all screwed up. I am going to fix that tonight.

quick question for you guys

I have a little DW from my 2.5" BB will an adjustable track bar solve the issue?

I have my eye on the JKS one.


Also how hard is the install?

it finally stopped raining so I put on my spiderweb shade top. This top fits great and feels very secure and makes no noise at all. I also took the doors off for the first time since the lift. Dang rain! :

I am now waiting until I have the money to make a big order from LOD.
New tire carrier, front stubby, and maybe sliders...

I spend all my jeep money on my dang mountain bike :

You are making me jealous. I am still unable to take the rear section of my top off. I have a pile of parts sitting at the local four wheel drive shop waiting to be picked up and installed and I still have not had time to go pick them up. In the mean time, I drool over your naked Jeep.

You like the TJ over the JK or do you just miss certain things about it? I know ever model of jeep has a certain feel to it that is unlike no other.
