Weekend is over...what did you get done?

That's the plan.
With that being said I've know loads of ppl who have broken synthetic lines... I don't know 1 person who has broken a steel line...

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Good day at the junk yards. I hit 5 of them today. I was able to get new window shades that actually retract for the Commander. New windshield washer nozzles for the Commander. Got a new axle shaft for the XJ. Mostly got some fresh air in one of my favorite settings.

This weekend I'll start working on getting the XJ ready for the Shamrock Shakedown next weekend.

So random (stupid) question.... Has anyone ghettofabbed a small diameter sway bar up front on the xj to help off-road? Something like a cheap antirock... Never heard of it being done...

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Maybe I'm not understanding your thought process, but most people remove or disconnect their sway bar to help off road with more articulation.

I looked at their website and it looks like maybe Antirock is an articulating sway bar? I don't quite get their set up.

It's to help have equal ish flex front and rear. My front goes to full flex before my rear really starts doing much. And that seems to be somewhat normal for an xj. So slightly control the front to force the rear to act right.

I made a cheap antirock bar a few years ago. Someone on started the thread. Use a torsion bar off of an Isuzu rodeo and weld the key ends onto some arms. It worked pretty well. My arms coming off of the torsion bar were 0.5 inch thick.

Speaking of breaking winch cables, this vid is always worth watching...

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Visiting the Pick and Pull for break parts for my rear JK transplant.

The Dodge Nitro 07 to 11 and Jeep Liberty 08 to 12 uses the same rear caliper and bracket as the JK. The rotors are the same diameter but different lug spacing. Time to get that 1/2 inch drill out.

If parking brake cable was that easy,...

I believe it is 1 inch diameter. It didnít limit any suspension articulation. I mounted the bar with some basic poly energy suspension sway bar bushings. No issues.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

I think registration ended a month or so ago. I was just curious if anyone else had registered. Rain will be there tomorrow morning, but supposed to be clear on Friday and Saturday - the two trail days. Yes, it will be muddy though.
