Well I got my Currie Anti Rock today now to find some garage time to get it installed before the Toys for Tots ride at Rock Run which is their last trail ride for the year.

I hope this anti rock will cure my body roll when wheeling, off camber hills are very uncomfortable, especially on the low side. Lol We will probably have to modify the links. As the way we have the axle setup one link is shorter than the other. Do to a couple skids we build to deflect rocks off of the control arm braces.

So I put on a set of 35" BFG M/T tonight wow what a difference is power and ride. I definitely like the ride and power but don't know if I will like the lack of traction on the trail. If so have thoughts on this let me know. I do have an option of buying these tires in 37", uses about 500 miles. Let me know what you you guys think. Thanks

Well I usually go mudding in my 84 ram but. But I find on the trails no matter what size tire it is all about the pressure. Size dose matter but if you have the right pressure you should do fine.

Yes I think you're right, I ran 15 lbs in my 36" for the jamboree and had problems. The next day I aired down to 10lbs and the difference was amazing. I'm not a mud loving person, I prefer rocks.

I'm just not sure how BFG MT are because the guy that runs them say they are terrible. Could be the driver. ?

The bf are a harder compound they last longer. For rock climbing you should find a lower tred war number. The lower the tred war number the softer the number.

On my car the tire is a Z rating it goes over 150 mph. The tred ware is 200. On my Durango the tred ware is 500 they don't stick to the road but they last a lot longer.

I think I may have known that but it's been along time since I used it. Thanks for reminding me.

Are you going to be posting your tire carrier build on here?


My understanding of the Antirock is that the torsion bar running through the crossmember twists when the front end articulates. As it twists, it actually pushes the axle down on the droop side. This gives more control, rather than the axle just flopping down as when completely disconnected. The AR applies some force to the axle which increases your traction through the flex range.

....bad way of explaining it, but that is how I understand it to work.

So I've been out shopping for a beater jeep so I can park my TJ for the winter. I hate to have the salt and grime on all the JJ's for them to rust. What I have found is a bunch of Cherokees some with rust and some in excellent shape. One is rust free with a bad head for $1000, I think this is the way I'm going to go. I'm not 100% sure though. Any opinions are welcome.

Well I bought an 01 Grand with a new long block and 4 1/2" lift. I definitely know why I went with a LA susp. this thing rides like a buck board compared to my TJ.
Oh well I guess it's just my winter beater to keep the real jeep from getting coated in these PA salt covered roads and my jeep from rusting to pieces. Pics to follow when we get out of the tundra temps, we're having here.

The winter beater!!
Well another great find this evening. I purchased a brand new never been used Currie 9" front and rear high pinion axles complete with disk brakes and Warn hubs in the front. Not crazy about having to buy new wheels because they are 5 x 5.5" spacing but I saved over $7000. The only thing that I have to purchase is a compressor. Pictures to follow when I get them home.

Well not much work going on with the jeep but I have been busy gathering some parts. I aquired some Currie High 9" fr and rr with ARB lockers and disk brakes. I also got a Viair comp with tank. The axles are 63.5" wide so they will be 3" wider than my stock axles. They also have the 5 on 5.5 spacing so I will be looking for a set of rims. This also will help with my rear drive shaft binding since it's got a shorter pinion length so I will be able to have a longer DS and now I will be able to lengthen my limiting strap. Which should allow me to flex a little more.

Well air system is bought for the ARB's and I've upgraded to 37" TrXus MT. I didn't want to go to 37" until I had the axles installed but the price was right.
Now to go over the jeep before the Jeep Jamboree at Penn's Woods and do any last minute fixes I may find.

Made it back in one piece. My daughter (13 yrs old) had a blast!!
We dented one center cap on front wheel and bent the rocker on pass. side about 4" long.

I aired down to what I thought was 10# to find out my Currie deflator was off by 5#. So at 15# had to work a little harder til I realized that and aired down to 10. These TrXus worked great when aired down properly.

I rub the fender flares a few times but no metal. So I guess our build for 35" was enough to run 37" without issues. I did run the frame with the inside sidewall but that will be fixed when I install my hi9's. My axles are in the shop ready to truss and weld the perches on. Hopefully more progress in a few weeks.
