An AT tire will usually come with a thinner sidewall than a typical 3 ply KM2 so the ride will feel more plush at the same tire pressure. The holes are for studding them...not that a Floridian will...

I wonder if the 3.5" kit included anything in the way of a high-steer (flip kit, whatever) to help the steering. At 3.5" of lift, a high steer kit and something to fix caster (preferably the...

When I did mine, it was difficult to keep the bit from jumping around. It wanted to bite into the cast iron which made it pretty tough. Then I was told that the tapered step style drill bits...

Me too. It triggered an education that I never cared to pursue. Some tires have issues that are hard to diagnose.

I suspect he said that because many of us are able to recenter our steering wheels after a lift. If you are doing a lift that doesn't offer some way to adjust caster, it is set. The camber is set by...

I went through this for several years myself. It started with the installation of new 35" Coopers.

I checked everything I could. I looked at calipers, I changed the tires side-to-side, I played...

I didn't cut the shield off because I wanted to reuse it with a new manifold. I purchased a manifold that included a shield, but the new shield was nowhere close to the same appearance or quality of...

Had the exact same thing happen on mine. I figured that rust is hardly the fault of the shop (dealer shop). They didn't even offer a free replacement, so from my perspective, you're doing better than...

My left rear did the same thing. I ended up replacing it. I never saw anything wrong with the caliper and I did try lubing the guides. But it would stick and heat up every other trip. The new one...

The thing that tipped me off was that the clicking sound on mine was definitely louder on the driver's side. While it still could have been something more serious, It seemed that with the frequency...

Removing that heat shield requires the removal of some of the manifold bolts so care is needed here. The only thing to be sure to avoid is breaking off a bolt. I replaced all of my bolts with the new...

My 3.8 made a ticking sound as well. It was a crack in the driver's side exhaust manifold. This is pretty common in 3.8s. I had to remove all of the bolts holding the heat shield in place to see it....

One follow up. I assumed he was referring to the rubber bushings in the track bar and control arms mostly since the stock TREs don't have rubber in them (none that I've ever heard about anyway).

The reason for the rubber bushings, according to engineers, is the reduction of metal fatigue over the long term. Without something to absorb the vibration, metal fatigues over time and leads to...

Not as bad, but I used to own a Toyota Tundra TRD. Seems like Toyota should have reconsidered that one. While TRD stands for Toyota Racing Development, what American ISN'T going to think "turd"?

I am running a kit from Synergy. It seems to be a good kit. It definitely improved steering feel + my Jeep leans less in corners due to the lift of the track bar too.

AEV's kit works similarly. If...
