Been out of the loop for about three years. I have some questions for the masses here. Please chime in with any opinions on this stuff.

Are OME shocks still considered to be high quality?
Does OME still help you tailor your shocks based on the equipment load you have on your jeep?
Is the big debate still over Johnny Joints or Duroflex Joints?
Is Savvy still one of the top producers of stuff?
Is Currie steering still the gold standard?

What are the current "hot" lift kits for both high-end and budget builds? Used to be Currie or Metalcloak at the top and the Zone 3"+1" budget lift was champ on the low end.

Have the PCMs finally become an issue for everyone? They were starting to crap out on a lot of people about three years ago and a few companies were starting to offer rebuilt units.

Who are the current big names in SYEs and driveshafts? I have a Tom Wood shaft and the Teraflex Extreme Short Shaft Kit. I am assuming that these are still respected components.

What about the Savvy tummy tuck and gas tank skid plates? I have these and love them, but I know they are probably old news by now.

No fighting, please. No flames. I don't want to know what everyone thinks is best or why. I want to know what is currently popular. Just curious. Not shopping, but seeing how "out of date" my TJ has become, heh, heh…

Someone please get me up to speed. I am clueless in regards to what is available and popular today on our TJs.

Thanks!

The 4 Litre Jeep aftermarket is now at a stand still, so in general, the answer to all of your questions is "Yes, still applicable".

Thanks. Also, I just realized I posted this in the Tech forum. My apologies to the mods. Please delete this. I can repost later (perhaps worded a bit better) in the General Discussion forum.

OME's Nitrocharger has been replaced by the Nitrocharger Sport and it is a LOT stiffer than it was with the original Nitrocharger. Guesses are they made the Sport version stiffer for the newer heavier JKs. The original Nitrocharger that was so superb on the TJ is no longer made.

Few would dispute the Johnnyjoint being significantly superior to the MC Duraflex rubber bushing.

Savvy is still going strong, I'll upgrade to their midarm suspension when I win the lottery.

And yep, Currie's Currectlync HD Steering Kit is still at the top of the heap IMHO.

There's a new company that has come out with a PCM that apparently fixes all the big problems with the 42RLE automatic transmission in the 2005-6 models. First reports are all very positive. If you're interested in the name, PM me since I'll have to go dig up the name.

Savvy and Currie are still the best of the best.

5.38 gears

The Savvy Mid Arm might be the most significant development in recent years.

We now know how to properly fix the gas tank over flow for free.

Tuned shocks on relocated mounts might be more popular than it was several years ago.

Mopar radiators might be getting harder to find.

JB conversions for the supershort SYE. Tom Wood is still recommended often.


As stated, Savvy and currie are still the top manufactures for anything TJ related.
