Boat =I usually hang out on boat forums!
Yes the Jeep is SO MUCH cheaper to operate than the boat. Gets more use too!Boat =
Gary, if you are satisfied or convinced that your Currie SUA set-up has not provided you with enough travel & articulation, there are a few things that can sometimes help in fine-tuning it to get a bit better, but I wouldn't expect huge improvements if you have already done some things.
Better greasable shackles, better bushings, different spring rate, better shocks, better swaybar set-up, better tracbar/panhard bar set-up, better steering set-up that allows for the steering links to "twist" more freely & without bind, plus a few other things is about all there is for a SUA set-up.
Unless you are possibly looking to go SOA, the above is about all you can look into for potential improvements. Sometimes the shocks are limiting things & often if the tracbar and swaybar are still in use, those will hamper travel & articulation.
What types of improvements have you done to the Currie suspension?
Are you still running the F&R tracbars & front swaybar? If so, are they stock?

Quality is like buying oats. If you want clean, fresh oats you must pay a fair price. If you want oats that have already been through the horse, those are a little cheaper.
I know of a couple closer to me (San Diego area) but John is as good as it gets.
Did you just turn a YJ into an XJ?!I went with a RockKrawler coilover kit on the front and kept the rear sua leaf. It gives you a bunch of travel and drop out in the front to maintain traction, but retains some stability in the rear on the off camber stuff. So far I'm really happy with it and would recomend it to anyone. Here's a link to my build to see what I'm talking about http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/my-5-0-coilover-build-931241/
