Do you have any idea how many people have broken his track bar and track bar mount?


I would say all of the stuff he makes in house sucks. Everything else is ok.





Good job on the MJ! Time to trim those fenders and swap in the 4wd.

Re: 1989 jeep comanche build thread

I personally like the rake of the truck, thats the way trucks were meant to be. My GF runs 4.5" coils and soa rear and I think it turned out real nice. I had a lifted super duty that sat level, I hated it, every time I hooked up a trailer it made the truck look dumb squating down in the rear!

I also don't think i'd change the front end on an MJ, they are old school and look cool. I don't think i'd want it to look like a new XJ and those 2500 clips looks like someone puked up ass matter... IMHO :P
