I made a trip to AOAA last week, where I bent the replacement ZJ tie rod. I'm now convinced that the ZJ conversion is a good street upgrade, but that for wheeling, something heavier duty is needed!

Dang, I'm still on the OEM tie rod and as far as I can tell, it's not bent. I must not be wheeling hard enough. :ROFLMAO:

Where did they bend? Same spot?

Sometimes it's the simple things. Dashlights are now a patriotic red, white and blue. And yes, before anyone says anything, I listen to Glenn Campbell! ;)

I have an excessive amount of brake dust on the driver side. Any ideas what's causing that? The first picture is driver side. Second picture is passenger side.

You are not placing your foot in the center of the brake pedal, you are pressing to much on the left hand side…

🙂

Glad to see the death wobble in your rear view.
