Thanks it was good to get it out finally.. I actually had some issues with pitman bolt rubbing a bit so I just flipped the heim up top and gonna weld up a double shear style bracket on top seems to steer better on top.

Pretty cool you got the ORS bumper. So what the deal with the off center 14 bolt truss or did you do it like that on purpose?

The pumpkin is off set to drivers side so the truss is centered over the pumpkin I will still be able to center my upper link mounts no problem

well finally fixed my crappy steerng radius since i went tons.. did some research and found a wj pitman has about an inch more throw than the xj and only has 2" drop so i ordered one up got it tossed in but found i needed to lenghthen my drag link with the new geometry.. dont like having much thread showing on my RE.. so sleeved my 1.5x.25 DOM with some 2x.25 DOM i had around.. over lapped about 4" on each side and burned in some rosettes and each side should be plenty strong and turning is awesome once again even with the front axled locked up (which is sweet)



also been thinking about pulling my headunit out for awhile ive never had an antenna hooked up and pretty sure a cd has never been in it basically just use my ipod.. sooo being as that i used to be a car audio installer for 5 years had some stuff laying around.. wired my ipod up to a line driver to bump up the preout voltage then ran it to my 4 channel so now i still have tunes running straight from my ipod and i was able to get a rough layout for my switch panel..
first 2 are my cooling fans 3rd is audio system and the rest are for future
