Ride is good, was shakey at first but realized lower trackbar bolt in the front was loose. Now it is a lot better but still a little shakey at over 50mph or so but nothing bad. the shocks make it ride nice and smooth. I love the way the jeep turned out.

You should replace them with proper sized shouldered bolts. Jeep undersized the trackbar and control arm bolts and they tend to lead to vibrations and ovaled out bushing sleeves.

Looks good!

The rust under that thing looks terrible for 2010!

Synergy and Northridge sell complete suspension bolt kits with shouldered bolts that you should check out. I would strongly considering sleeving and gusseting the front axle with those heavy steel wheels and 35" mtrs.

the rust looks worse in the pictures than it actually is. and rust happens pretty quick up here in New England in the winter. They use a ton of salt on the roads. May take a rattle can up there and give it a little coat so it doesn't rust anymore.

do they sell sleeving and gusseting kits? is it hard to do? Im not super new to the jeep world but am to the wrangler world and I am learning as I am going.

Your Jeep really turned out nice.

Even a “little shakey” is bad; it will only lead to bigger problems. If I were you I would find the cause early on to avoid more costly repairs down the road.

It is only a tad shakey in the steering wheel when I go like 45 to 50 mph. Steering wheel feels tight though. What might be the cause? What should I check?

Sounds like a tire issue or a tire balance issue. I would rotate tires front to back and see If steering wheel shake goes away. If it does go away at least you will have it down to just two tires or wheels.

The tires and wheels are brand new and just got balanced. Could this still be the problem?

Could still be problem a quick rotate would be a good diagnostic step. They might not be balanced properly or one of them could have excessive road force. One other possibility did you remove the little speed lock rings from studs that hold rotors on during assembly. Most all aftermarket wheels are not recessed for the rings and that will not allow wheels to mount perfectly flush to hub.

Did you make sure the air pressure is the same in all 4 tires?

I don't think I saw any speed lock rings. What do they look like

If u don't remember removing them then they are most still on vehicle. They are round and they twist on the wheel studs to hold rotors on going down the assembly line. They can be stubborn to get off so you would remember. They are about as thick as 2 sheets of paper and as big around as a nickel or quarter.

What is the correct tire pressure I should inflate my tires to?
