PSC has come out with a new steering box for the jk that claims no hydro assist is needed with tires up to 37s and is quite a Bit stronger. Gonna look at that so I may not need to do hydro.

Well sad day. The jeep failed to start today. Had to call my wife and have the Tacoma jump start it. I knew the battery was gettin weak but thought it was better than it was. Went and picked up an orileys super start platinum AGM made by east penn. The jeep starts better than it has ever done. I also ordered my axles  from carbon off road and they will ship out after KOH.

Ordered a 4.88 gearset and bearings to go with it. I also ordered a lube locker gasket for the diff cover. Heard nothing but great things about them. Up next is an ARB

Should have gotten Ranchos...

I know it's just me all alone on this one.

Pretty much. I went cheap for now. I want to eventually run a coilover in the front.

I actually preferred the ride of the Bilstein shocks on my 4Runner on the street, but they didn't control it off road at all or when it was loaded.  The thing drove like a boat loaded up and bottomed out constantly in Moab.  If I was on the street running empty they had a fantastic ride.

Sounds to me like you didn't have enough shaft exposed at ride height.

Maybe, but the Ranchos I am running are almost dimensionally identical and pretty eliminated the issue. The Bilsteins really did a poor job of controlling my suspension at slow speeds. Lots of flopping back and forth along with bottoming out.  I have no doubt that a Bilstein could be calves to work well, but in my experience the 5100s from Marlin were not a good solution.

It'll be cool when I feel like I need to bring the 4Runner when we hang out.  The Civic handled itself well today!

How do you like the Hankook Dynapro ATM tires on the Jeep?  They are pretty affordable and very similar to the Cooper ATP

Pathfinder AT is basically a cheaper version of the same tire

You can go through life being scared of the possible, or you can have a little fun and tease the inevitable.

Give a man venison, he'll eat for a day. Teach a man to hunt Blacktail, he'll be frustrated for life!

I love them I ran them on my Tacoma as well. They seem to wear really well and have great traction in the rain and snow plus they ride very nice. I would not hesitate to run them again

Shafts are finally ordered. They are not selling them to the public yet since they need to test all aftermarket housings for length, seal surface and all that. Lucky for me I have been in touch with them for a while about ordering a set and they sold me the first ones available for my pro rock.
