work great to quiet down draw bars. aids in towing as the trailer won't "wibble" around behind you, or sound like it just fell off and hit an IED. I especially like how it keeps the bike rack from swaying.

Installed all 4 new caliper, brakes and rotors and also installed both new wheel bearings, it also had a belt squeal when the ac and defroster was on so I installed a new belt tensioner, worked like a charm!!

how hard is the 4.10 swap? I have heard many stories like yours about it just being better. Is it better for off road only or will I gain something on road. Since my wife primarily drives the KJ on pavement, that has to be the number one concern...

The roof is coming. I built this without plans and figured it might be a good idea to actually measure out the roof part.
