Technical Advice and Questions / New Lift issues
« on: August 25, 2013, 09:14:26 am »
installed a Iron Roc short arm kit last week. Now when i pull out from a stop there is a banging coming from the rear. Its hard to explain in writing. it is not just a single bang or pop but more like a series of them occurring rapidly only when i initially start pulling out. Any ideas?

Technical Advice and Questions / Steering Stabilizers
« on: May 27, 2013, 07:49:47 pm »
Ok lets get some opinions here. I will be installing my new 4" Iron Rock lift soon and then need to upgrade the steering side. i have been looking at doing the whole dual set up. I am running a 99 tj with 33X12.5's on the above mentioned 4" suspension with a 1 inch body. i know the dual set up may be unnecessary but i will be stepping up to 35's at some point and figure i need to replace the current stabilizer so why not just upgrade now. Any recommendations on Brands or maybe some feedback on what ya'll are already runnin.

Product Feedback / Bulldog Winches
« on: April 10, 2013, 11:02:53 pm »
bought this winch sometime ago. it is a Bulldog 9500lb unit. i had only used it a few times and seemed to work well enough. then it sat idle for a year when i went to use it, it did not work. so more time passes when i decide i am going to fix it. i opened up the solenoid box (which is built to be weather proof) to find it half full of water and everything rusted beyond recognition. i would definitely not recommend buying this winch as you will not get more than a few years out of it considering the poor construction of the controls. the only good thing with this winch company (unlike other economy winch builders) is that they sell replacement parts online. So i will be rebuilding the control box but i see that i will have to relocate it under the hood as to not have a repeat of this crap.

Technical Advice and Questions / Smittybuilt Rear Bumper
« on: February 21, 2013, 03:56:43 am »
Has anyone run one of these smittybuilt rear bumpers with tire carrier? I am looking to get one and these are quite a bit cheaper than the rest so i would assume that means they are not as good. I do not have 600 to spend on a top of a line one so ia am considering risking it but would like to hear some opinions first.

Introductions / hello from York
« on: November 06, 2012, 03:40:30 pm »
just joined up. raised in central PA but have not done any offroading here. Got into Jeeps while living in Phoenix and recently moved back to PA. Looking forward to getting out on some trails. Just started building a 4.6 stroker for the TJ, although i suspect it will take some time before it is ready to drop in.
