    Swaybars...better in the front or rear ?

    Stole it from the net: "To put it simply, if you drive an all wheel drive car that understeers, install a stiffer rear sway bar. If you drive an all wheel drive car that oversteers, install a stiffer front sway bar. All wheel drive vehicles all handle a little bit differently, this means that...

    Low Gears

    How hard did you drive it on the trails? After more research it sounds like the pinion is small, as in less contact with ring gear and people seem to break a lot. I may just stick with the 5.38 gears, that seems to be a common setup.

    Low Gears

    This is for my Jeep/Truck project. It's mostly going to be for rock crawling but I will occasionally drive it to work on a Friday or to take the wife to Cold Stone for some ice cream lol. Maybe, get on 400 for one or 2 exits. I'm looking at running 6.17's maybe 7.17's with 42" tires. With the...

    Anyone running gears lower than 5.38's and driving on the street? Do you love it or regret it?

    Nice looking Jeep! We lived in LA for a while. Did a few trips out to Johnson Valley and Cougar Buttes. I regret not going to the Rubicon, now its too far lol.

    Converting 14 bolt hubs to studs and nuts

    I tried studs but still had problems. Switched back to grade 8 bolts with safety wire and didn't have any issues for 2 years. I sold the jeep, so I don't know if it still holding or not.

    I decided to keep it old school. Found an old, but rebuilt, GM crate motor SBC 350. Less than 10k miles and it was only $100. Also found a 700r4 tranny to go with it. I'll put a manual valve body in it to get rid of the TV cable and I plan on keeping the lock up function on the torque converter...
