Re: I'm back in a Jeep

I felt that way about the reg cab short bed 94 Dakota with the 5.2 that I owned for 8 years. The WJ is a close 2nd for me and I plan on keeping it as long as nothing major happens to it.:thumbsup:

I have the AT3s on my WJ and I will replace them with the same tire when it is time. They are excellent in snow (8" inches last winter was no problem) and great in the wet.

Re: The death wobble returns

The lower control arms on the front are prone to wear and often get overlooked. I would suggest going for those. You can press in the new bushings (get molar) or try "off the shelf" rebuilt parts.
