Fixed the steering wobble, it turn out that tie rod end boots are important and the only one that didnt have a boot was worn out. Other than that the jeep is going good. Trail rides a few times a month, it is fun being the only cherokee. Next event is jeep beach.

Jeep Beach was awesome. Tons of cool jeeps and then a lot of Jks where there too.

Clayton 3 link front and 4 link Rear. I am 100% this is the 3 link I will buy when the time comes. Huge skid, high clearance, square arms and knowledgeable sale staff.

I didn't do the obstacle course as I didn't want to wait in line and I didn't really care about it. But lots of cool venders and free stuff

The jeep is back home and has had a few things done to it. It need new brakes all the way around, wheel bearings were shot and one of them I don’t think was every replaced as it was very hard to get off, the track bar crapped out so it was changed to the cav fab track bar, and a new set of wheels and tires. Also ordered iron man 4x4 rear shackles to get some more height and adjustability and take a little of the squat out.



Cav fab track bar. Angles are much better



33 12.50 falken mt tire on American racing alloy wheels




Next items to get done is new transfer case shift linkage, a under hood relay box for all the knic nacks, a lighter weight roof rack, and some new bumpers as i no longer like these. They don’t seem to hold up very well and the rear tire carrier has a broken latch.

Installed my shackles and the angle was way off so I bought the relocation kit and fixed that issue. Getting it mounted was a bit off work, the bumper mounts need to be changed a good bit. Once it was all together my shocks where maxed out at ride height so i got some longer skyjackers to replace them. I am making upper mounts to get rid of the bar pins.

A lot closer to level

Next things are a new roof rack to mount lights to and lighter weight. Also I may do a acos spacer up front and new shocks. I am working on getting a Dana 44 rear axle at the moment but donít know if the guy will sell it to me yet.

I am liking it as well but there are some weird things about it that I didnít notice till it arrived. It doesnít use jam nuts to lock the arms in place it has bolts that clamp the links tight on the joints. And the joints look maxed out at ride height. I donít think it will cause any issues though. I would still buy it again.

Nice jeep, i'm in the process of installing the same long arm kit on mine.

Noticed 2 things in your pictures 1 your crossmember is installed backwards. (The text side faces forward)

2 the Flex joint on the LCA bolt at the crossmember not the axle. That maybe why the joints look maxed out.

That makes sense. I just went on there web site and saw the picture of it put together and mine is wrong. Thankyou. It makes a noise when you hit a bump ant it must the the joint maxing out and hitting the lca.

Havent posted in a while. I still have it and i am still doing mods. I have installed a acos coil spacer to get the jeep sitting how i want it to, new roof rack, new 1/0 power wire for speaker amps and accessories, relay box, interior lights, and just general cleaning up wiring.



I built a new roof rack out of aluminum tube and used 8 inch kc hid lights.

Small quadratec led lights on the rear of the rack


I had a large storage system in the back and i decided to remove it along with the rear seats.

Rough country relay box, speaker amp, and power distribution.

New seats i will be putting in. The drivers seat will have a seat heater and the passenger seat will not.

Next things are making the floor in the back flat after i put the new seats in. Then i will buy some new shocks, I still have the front shocks from my 2 inch lift. I have been eyeing some 12 in short body bilstein 7100 or fox 2.0 shocks but havent decided yet.
