JK Rear Seat Install

I decided to install a Wrangler JK rear seat as it is the widest fold and tumble seat that fits between the wheel wells. It is only set up for two passengers at the moment but I may be able to add a third seat belt in the middle. I really like that it easily folds and tumbles forward in addition to ...

Bent inner C AKA inner knuckle

Looks like I bent my inner C when my u-joint exploded on Cadillac Hill this summer. I can’t find specific measurements for the Inner C but the ball joints don’t fit up right. I am thinking about using a large bolt through the upper and lower ball joint holes to bend it back to shape then add a gusse...

I ran a Detroit for several years and hated it overall. The slop annoyed me all the time and the clunky locking/unlocking sucked on pavement, it was really bad when towing. Off road it worked well but not being able to unlock it on side hills was not fun. I now run a ARB in the rear and a TracLock i...

Stan, based on your description I believe you are not dealing with bump steer. I agree with the alignment guy, with the much larger than stock tires you should have a bit more caster and toe than the stock specs call for. You could dial in a little more “toe in” and see if it improves the tracking s...

Paul nailed it! It would be helpful to know what the real behavior is so we can help diagnose the issue as many folks suffer from bump steer due to poor trackbar - draglink geometry. I installed along arms years ago and it took a lot of effort to get my on-road manners back! I had to install stiffer...

Wow all kinds of interesting modifications on that one! I like the dual shocks mounted above the axle to control wheel hop. It is stretched and has a very custom dash also. Other than the rust it looks like a great project. You will have lots of fun with that!

For a quick fix you can get an plug or a flush zerk so it won't hit. I had the same issue with mine when I had the f150 box installed, the clamps rubbed the tie rod... I have since built a custom track bar that is longer and provides more clearance. You might be able to actually pull the axle back a...

RJM EFI Harness question

Hey I installed one of Ryan McCormicks (RJM Technologies) EFI harness many years ago but I have lost the emails from him that explain which relay and fuse do what. Also, I have a mystery green wire that is terminated in a loose Weather Pack connector down by the transmission that I believe is for th...

Aux Tank Vent Modification

Thanks to this post/thread I decided to add a vent to the aux tank so it would fill better and maybe hold more. I drilled an undersized hole and threaded the fitting in. Next I used JB Weld's WaterWeld to ensure it will stay put and not leak. I also unthreaded the fill fitting from the tank, cleaned...

Here is where I am at right now.... The suspension is at ride height with the bracket and lower slipper mount tack welded in place. This setup should allow full compression of the suspension and not limit down travel.

Thoughts?

Soon, very soon... I am still working out the position and calculating loads. If I put the bags right over the axle it will limit the compression by 3.5" so I am going to mount them forward of the axle on the spring to decrease the motion ratio. however I don't want to go too far forward and cause t...
