Re: TJ's JT

So after Michael and I were done swapping control arms and stuffing a 37" spare tire under the bed, I came up with an idea to modify the Unistrut parts dune flag mount. The previous mount worked awesome with the factory Trail Rail system, but I had to run the flag with the tonneau cover open. N...

Re: TJ's JT

Finally got the Mopar 2" lift lower front control arms installed.

Then somehow, a set of 37" tires magically appeared on the Jeep. That's my story.

Re: Random Picture Thread

First snow run in the JT? Not really. Made it out to work in the middle of the night to get rid of snow!

Re: TJ's JT

I've been putting the dune flag on the front bumper through a hole meant for extra lights. PITA getting my fat fingers in there to put the nut on the flag. A trip to Lowes for $2 of Unistrut parts to make a mount on the factory trail rail. Problem solved, and the flag will sit a couple feet taller. ...

Re: TJ's JT

After a thousand miles or so after lifting it a little more, and some trips out to work along the heavily rutted river road, there is the slightest bit of squirlyness at hiway speed. The Mopar 2" lift that many install on these truck Jeep things gives about 2.5" lift on Rubicons, and 3&quo...

Re: TJ's JT

Did you adjust the caster and that track arm and draglink thing to account for the lift? If so, how? Surprisingly the axle doesn't seem to be too far off center from lifting it a little more, and the steering wheel is still centered. The Black TJ was off enough to bug me, so it got adjustable track...

Re: TJ's JT

Today was off with the Teraflex 1.5" front spacers, and on with an RC 2.5" front spacer kit. The front end dropped almost an inch after adding the winch and bumper. This fixed it. The RC kit also has extended sway bar links and shock extensions for the factory Fox shocks. Thank you Michael...

Re: Random Picture Thread

Last minute trek to Juniper with Mojito Jafo. Looked for some Putters on sxs's. Didn't find them. I did find out that all the fancy buttons in the world are no match for less than 10 lbs of air. :oops: Once I aired down, it even climbed hills backwards! Good to get out.

Unofficial PUAM/Litter protest 2020

As with all things 2020, this year's PUAM was officially cancelled. :cry: But, the PNW4WDA Region 4, and Gold Creek Station put on an unofficial clean up. I named it a litter/garbage protest, to lessen the guilt of attending a gathering during the Covid shutdown. :roll: I did not take many pictures....

Nice work!! I went round and round debating what to do for flat towing our JLU-R... MOPAR, Cool Tech, or the Hopkins diode kit... I finally took the easy (and cheap :oops: ) route and went with the Hopkins setup because I stalled long enough to put myself in a schedule bind, and simply didn't have ...

Cooltech JL/JT flat tow harness installed. This is a very well thought out and complete kit. It comes with an isolation switch, and custom under seat mount for it. Drain plug grommet to route plug wire under seat to front of Jeep. Was a little nerve wracking cutting the new rigs wires, but after the...

Whats your use case?


For right now, local daily driver, motorhome pull behind, and boat hauler. Campsite firewood hauling volunteer.
Mild spacer lift, 35's and light duty wheeler. Easy wide stuff. :oops:

Maybe later when the 35's wear out, a better lift, and 37's.
