Talking Re: Jay's 05 WK Build Thread

At the rate I'm going, who knows. I'm leaving for a weeks vacation tonight, so completion is at least 1.5 weeks out...unless anyone wants to come by my house and finish it up while I'm gone.

They ride much better than the stock ones after adding the additional height. I would also highly recommend the SRT8 sway bars as they will tighten up your on road ride and get rid of some floatiness. For 6" lift questions, Omelet, Valpacer, and Mr. Tosh will be great resources. They've done some additional things that I have yet to do. Good luck and keep us updated!!!
Thanks for the P/N! Got it saved. I'll definitely be going with the Bilsteins up front. I am also highly interested in getting some thicker sway bars since I had some thicker ones made on my old XJ with 37's and it made a world of difference.

I'll keep all of those people in mind.

Thanks again for the help and I'll continue following your build. Love to see other people's work and it doesn't hurt to see a TN Jeeper. NC here!

Cool! What part of NC are you in? I hang in western parts like Asheville and Boone a good bit.

I live in Raleigh, born in Greensboro, spent summers in Linville though. My fiance is from West Jefferson and her family is there so I am up in the NW corner of the state about 8-12 times a year. Once I have my Jeep built we'll have to meet up if it works out. I'd love to see your ride.

I haven't been to Asheville in ages but am planning a camping trip out there soon.

Cool! There are a few trails around the Boone area I've been wanting to explore. Get to building that Jeep so we can go!

No lift, 265/70/17's

My tire's are too close to the front fender to do too much. I actually have had the RC 2" lift for over a year, but I hate the way it makes the front end look like its higher than the rear due to the cut of the fenders.

I need to find a way to add an inch to the back part of the lift, then I'd go ahead with the install.
