First trip to Moab with the 40's and the 4-link. I was not disappointed. Here are a few clips from Rusty Nail.

it sure stuffs those 40's up in the fenders. It looks good.

I'm not sure why it took so long to do this simple upgrade. Hydro assist is done. I was super nervous about how it would drive on the road, particularly on the highway. It actually drives better in every way. Looking forward to seeing how it handles the rocks.

Hope you went slow with grease on the drill bit. Then used a magnet to clean if you didnít disassemble. Metal shavings can wreck a power steering system. You will love the assist though!

We did. My friend that helped me drill and tap has done this many times.

Trail Hero was bigger and better than ever. I have added a few obstacles to my YouTube channel. I have been thinking of this one for over a year.

Thanks! The stretch is probably my favorite mod. Enjoy your jeep!
