You know how all the rock competition guys unlock the rear of their rigs with their twin stick transfer cases, smash the rear brakes and pivot around a corner in 4 low/Front 2wd?

Well, it works AWESOME! You can turn on a DIME!

I forgot one thing.....

Nolen, did you screw up the tie rod I sent you? I thought you were out of order with the rear third member.

Yeah,
Rebuilt it to the tune of $300 just to wheel a couple more times before my new axles are ready.

Hell, can't pass up all the fun can I? <IMG SRC="smilies/jeep1.gif" border="0">

Yep, birfs are for kids.
Hopefully in a few months I will no longer be a kid.
At least on one of the Toys.

Ha!

They are Newfields! Trust me, that is not the answer to 100:1 and 38.5 Swampers.

As for the lift, it is a single large shackle (3" over stock in front/2" in rear) and 7" Alcan Springs with 2 leaves pulled out.

As for on the trail, I have NO complaints. I don't like the long shackles messing with my approach angle, put that only happens occasionally.

On the road it is fine. I am trail only 95% of the time.
