I didn't even have to straighten the steering wheel. Unlike the TJ/zj/xj/yj's, the JK uses crossover steering. You don't even need to adjust your toe.
Cool, as long as it is only a camera issue. The camber can be adjusted, it's just a pain. Offset ball joints can be installed, but there probally aren't any out for your axle yet. Camber can also be adjsuted with the control arms by rotatng the pinion. But that process is tedious and does't yield as much of a result.

Anyways, your Jeep looks good. I would start looking for some new rims. Those stockers just don't cut it in my opinion.

Did you have a chance to check out how well does JK's electronic limited slip system work?

Electronic limited slip is standard on all trims. It uses ABS hardware. It works over open diffs. Need more information on it?

Yes, I saw the video. I was interested in his comments.

When running Toyota FJ, ATRAC engagement is rather noisy. And you could see more slippage of individual wheels. It does not work well at all when both wheels are slipping, and not in 4Hi. Was the video in 4Lo BTW? Did not have a chance to wheel a JK yet.

Doeas brake assist (BAS) work in 4Lo?

The BAS does work in 4lo. I was in 4low there. It's not very noisy, as a matter of fact, it's hard to tell when it's working. i did feel a slight "tap tap tap"as i was going up the hill. I'm pretty sure that was the BAS working.

In high range (unless you turn it off) you have full esp. Which includes the BAS as well as an anti-roll over package. That is turned off automatically when you put the tcase into low range.


Rmcnelly: i'm waiting on my videos, but i should have more of the swb jeeps getting owned at that spot. where i popped over that hump at the very beginning (that's why mel laughed), nobody in a swb jeep could get over. They would just slide to the left. I popped right over, got cocky, and ended up too far left and had to work my way out.

Famicom21: 10 psi in the tires. . . . 12.2" wide tire on a 7" wide rim holds a bead pretty well.

a little, but my BAS light was on (i think the tone rings were just so covered in mud that it couldn't read). So it wasn't working (no big deal).

i'm still going to do selectable lockers int he axles with 4.88 gears.
