No.

Did the brake system bleed dry when you took the lines off the MC? Did you bench bleed the MC after?

Could you snap some pics when you do? I'm not sure I completely understand the process.

It's real easy. They have videos on YouTube.

I also deleted my ABS Pump like I said before, My System was bone dry after about 8 months of sitting empty I didn't have to bench bleed and it works A-1 running the XJ prop. The electronics being disco'd doesn't affect the Master at all you just get idiot lights to answer other buddies question if that could be it, but it may be the JK master won't function properly without a prop? I'll be watching to see how this unfolds, I think Cayman was having a similar issue he with his TJ brakes (he bench bled and even swapped masters and props iirc) then in the end he had them vacuum bled and it all came together for him.

I've bled the brakes a couple of times. Bench bled the mc today. I still have a super soft pedal. The brakes seem to work good, just to much travel in the pedal.

I drove it around today. It stops fine even in 4 wheel low with a 4:1 case. I'm not sure what's causing this.

I got my winch today so i started working on a front bumper. used 2x4 square tubing and 1/4'' plate. Goal was to make it a small, stubby, heavy duty bumper just big enough to hold a winch. Also got a tab welded off my hydro mount so I can suck down the front end, cut off the end of an old pitman arm for that.

I went with the smittybuilt xrc8. Yah it's not a warn. That's just not in the budget and even if it was i dont know if i would unleash a grand for a winch.

Why did Daimler Chrysler put such a peice of shit motor in a heavy ass 4 door jeep?

I just got the 5.38s in and it's still a turd on the street. Crawling will be ok with a 4:1 case but anything other than low sucks.

I've had a motor swap planned from the get go but It will happen when funds are available. Prob do a 5.3 or ls.

So I'll have to live with this factory turd for a while.

My lq4/T350 was under $1400, it's everything else that costs. There are some from time to time on texas4x4.org locally. Keep an eye out for a steal you can't pass up and start gathering parts. That's what costs anyways.

Suspension Question? When im in low and put it in gear the rear end will squat way down, same in reverse.

I've got 8'' vertical seperation at the rear axle and only about 2.5'' at the frame. I'll have to notch the tub and cut out a crossmember to raise the uppers on frame.

The lowers on the axle are about 1'' above axle centerline to center of bolt.

I was told to move uppers at frame up and lowers at axle down a few inches. Does this sound correct?

I could be wrong, but I think you strive for as close to 6" at the frame as possible. I would start there. 8" at the axle should be plenty, could be wrong.

Anybody else? Will more vertical seperation at the frame help with antisquat?

Have you ran the numbers on the 4 link calculator? I had to remove a crossmember and will have to notch my floor as well. Mines still 3-4 weeks from moving so I can't tell u how it will drive, but I had to do all the cutting to keepy AS numbers around 100

I didnt use 4 link calc. I placed the links where i didn't have to cut out the crossmember or notch the tub. It obviously doesnt have enough antisquat.

I just ordered some adjustable upper link brackets from ruff stuff. Im going to mount them as high as possible, build a new crossmember, and notch the tub.

I should be able to get 5-6'' of seperation at the frame.

My set up is different but I had anti squat problems also. I'm running a independent 3 link with almost 5" seperation at the frame. I have a RJ in the rear and I was amazed how much difference it made just by moving the lower links down to the lowest mounting hole. I see your lower axle mounts are almost level with the tube. Maybe bring them down a 1 or 1.5 inches below the tube. I bet it would help tremendously. If you look at the way rock krawler 3 link front cross member is made, there is only like 2 or maybe 3" frame seperation I realize that's the front I'm talking about but the same concept. Also on that setup the front lower axle mounts are 1.5"s below the tube.

I'm setting up a Superduty for my front now and plan to place the lowers in the same position as the stock mounts.

Edit: took another look at ur rear mounts and they look above the center line of the tube. I really think that's your problem. They need to be below the center line. The way those mounts are angle up I don't see that axle being able to roll up which basically is your squat.

My rear lowers center line is about 1 1/2 above center of axle tube. I plan to move it down about 2" or so.
