Oh Sh*t! I just realised this is in miles. I use that funky metric system in Australia and thought my 230,000kms (or 140,000 odd miles approximately) was getting there. I do take care of it so I guess it can really go more than I thought
I've been fortunate enough to not have the wobble. That was the first thing I looked for having had that happen in another car years ago. Using the Rancho Rock Crawler kit and it's been greatDid some major front end surgery this past weekend, thankfully I had a friend come and help out.
From the inside-out, new ECGS Chromoly Axle shafts, Ten Factory outer tube seals, Teraflex ball joints, painted the knuckles Rustoleum Hammered Black, Timkin Unit Bearings, Crown Dust shields, Black Magic Rotors, Calipers, and pads, Stainless steel extended brake lines, Currie drag link and tie rod, new factory spec pitman arm, Fox 2.0 steering stabilizer.
The main goal was to get rid of the death wobble, secondary goal was to drain my bank account. Both goals achieved! The Jeep looks and feels brand new. Did a quick and dirty toe alignment so it's drivable while I wait for my appointment to get a full alignment and 4-wheel balance done at 4WheelParts.

I haven't had my TJ very long so its hard to say exactly how it was cared for but she runs really good and doesn't burn any oil.Oh Sh*t! I just realised this is in miles.

Same. No oil loss whatsoever. I've had to replace a starter motor (oh no!), an oil pressure sensor and a dinged exhaust causing an error code (Gasp!). So far so good!I haven't had my TJ very long so its hard to say exactly how it was cared for but she runs really good and doesn't burn any oil.
I pulled the covers off of my Tiburon seats and installed Dorman seat heaters. They work great!

To further get ready for the winter, I switched out the Alpine radio for a stock MOPAR radio. It's nice to have a radio with big knobs and buttons that I can work with my gloves on.
I run my 31’s at 20 psi all the time while in the mountains. Even on the highway at 65. No problems at all! Normally I run 28 psi when not 4 wheeling.Ok, so we were probably only doing 10mph max at any given time. Terrain was mainly dirt with a few rocky areas but not super rocky. So I was probably good at 20.
Did the Teraflex give you a true 2” lift? I want a 2” lift but hear people saying they get more like 3” out of some springs. I don’t want more than 2”.3/4 install of a teraflex 2” suspension lift.
not Fully installed because I broke all four of the bolts holding the rear shocks in. So for now I have a super bouncy ride.
Thanks. I didn't want to do anything with that panel that would make it stand out too much and I think it turned out OK. I like that size and style of switch … nice and simple. The other 2 switches are for lights on an over head console I'm building. I have 14 of them in total and hopefully none that look out of place.Best use of space of that empty spot. Looks factory. Well done!
