i have plans to ditch the IFS with a real front axle. and i'm not sure if i'll keep the rear axle or just go to a 9".

traction control sucks. but i love the rest of the jeep.

theres just nothing around here to have an extreme crawler, but this fits my family and does very well on the highway.

Even for mild wheeling, you might want to drop a tube off that bumper to protect the bottom of the radiator/condensor. It looks pretty low and exposed

i'll be building a skid plate for that part. i'm actually proto-typing the bumper for production. i'll be selling them by the end of the month.

i've got plans for rocker gaurds, and some sort of rear bumper. eventually i may just go with coil-overs up front, and some different coil springs in the rear.

jeep should not really call the commander or GC trail rated. the rear control arms hit the gas tank at full drop. i'll probably build some different control arms with a bend in them.

i guess if i ever want to go hard-core, i'll get an old wagoneer. i really like those, and they can be built pretty cheaply.
