After driving with no stabilizer for a few weeks I'm finally getting sick of the steering being so loose. So I ordered a teraflex steering stabilizer. Now that the death wobble has been temporarily fixed, I figured I could just as well throw one on and start the front end build and make sure it stays gone.

Control arms and track bar next


I don't get lost, just temporarily misplaced

After 4600km of driving with my jeep stock, i made the leap and installed a 2.5" teraflex lift and put some 34" goodyear duratracs on as well.
That should help get through the deep snow up here in Canada.

Yes, that dash mod was the cheapest mod I have done on the Jeep! Only $1.05 with tax! The foam was 8 feet, so, I cut it to about 54" then trimmed the excess when I got to the end. Yeh, Quadratec will take that idea and sell it for $14.99!

Excellent idea but will it screw up defrosting the windshield?

What are you guys putting on your dash that falls through?! Mine has a rubber gasket thing and the only place to put stuff is in the dash basket thats pretty deep.

No, defroster vents are separate, you can see them in the photo.

On my 2010 there is no dash tray, just a sloped top above the center section of the dash. This space is between the plastic dash and windshield, and on my 2010, which I purchased new, has nothing but a huge gap. I have had coins roll in the bottomless gap and a house key!! This solves that issue!!

I think it's brilliant! A lot I park in frequently has tickets to leave on the dash for the attendant to check and I've lost a few down there and also it will help keep branches and leaves and all kinds of stuff from falling back there when wheeling in the summer time with the top and doors off!!! Amazing idea. Thank you.

Put a stubby radio antenna on... love that I don't see it and it's so low profile but signal never changed.
