I bought the jeep in 2005 and it was bone stock. It's a 92 Cherokee laredo 4.0L. The picture above is the oldest picture I have of it and it and is the first lift I put on it. 4.5 in. Rough country with 33x12.50x15 federal mud terrains on black steelies. I'll be posting plenty more pics over the next few days since I have a ton of them and the jeep doesn't look anything like this anymore.

The jeep developed death wobble shortly after I bought it and lifting it 4.5 inches and bigger tires just made it worse. so I replaced all the balljoints first cause they had some play.

The stock trackbar tie rod part had some play also and I wanted to use the stock hole location rather than using the hole that rough country tells you to drill in the bracket so I replaced it with this beefy Iron Rock Offroad double shear adjustable tracbar.

Well after all that the DW was better but still there. So the next thing was to replace my worn out steering system. I replaced all the tie rod ends with moogs, moog drag link, and IRO HD tie rod.

After replacing everything in the front end the death wobble was way better but still there and now I'm frustrated.

Well after I inspected everything again I found that one of the bushings on the rough country control arms was wasted. Since Ive been wanting long arms anyways I started saving some cash.
