Last time I putted up it I had H2 wheels on my Jeep, would be about the same width as you. It's a fun obstacle that asks for a good line to get through it

Lol that's what I was talking about, I kept catching my rear diff on that big rock that had worked it's way down from higher up. It does pretty well for a short arm kit, it climbs even better with the new tires it seems. Thanks for compliments. Means something coming from someone like you

I am looking for a 2012 or newer 2 Dr JK so I can start all over...I love my TJ and it will be hard to part with, but aside from stretching it or doing a mid arm build its pretty much built and that it half the fun.....

JeepHerz So Russ broke his D60? He broke the D44 and then upgraded to the D60 right? And broke it on the Gatekeeper?
Gunner- we only made one prototype sub. and I need to keep it around for testing when we get the new one. Sorry!

I will have to check that out. Its been aligned twice and its close to being true but its not to where it should be. Thanks man. Maybe the aftermarket trackbar is all off...?

Gunner YUP on 35's. How about one of the mockup ones you did. Would you sell that?

I'll try and do that. He is in a JKU on 35s right? Does he have anti-rock that you know? I'll shoot him a PM.
The sub box isn't for sale yet. We changed the design just a smidge and requested a new prototype- but my father-in law has just been too busy with his regular business to hound the factory that is making it. We also held off a little over concern about the 2015 sub design- which happens to be in the same spot. We're still going to push through but David is probably best to go ahead and buy one though it pains me to say so. We're many months before we have production.

I can add that now for not much more money and probably will so it takes load away from the sector shaft. They charge $375 to do the work on a gear that you provide and ship.

I think the biggest thing you get is the increased flow and volume. The size difference is quite a bit. The pump and reservoir were about $540 and the cooler was another $115... Etc. I am fresh with most of the prices because I'm getting ready to sell it and have been jotting down the upgrades...
Bill is right, as usual. PSC makes several levels of steering improvement with their kits. I just have the reservoir and box for better volume and fluid cooling. I'll have my stock box re-built by PSC and swapped out (since I mangled the one in the Jeep.) It won't be that much more work for Stan to then add the Ram cylinder/assist.
This may sound strange but I bought a 2 door JK because I like the handling and tight turning radius. My JK (did) drive just fine on the road so I don't need any improvement there- it would just be so I can turn my 35s on the trail easier. (How many times does Dan say "turn passenger"- and I am. Just in tiny increments....) I am not sure I want to add the assist to the detriment of my daily driver....but then I read that David's drives better on the road. Yet some people say its flighty when you turn.
Argh.
