  1. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    My steering box is the AC part number because I bought an early production JL. It’s build date is 11/17
  2. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    It has to be the steering box, unless there is something else slacking within the steering column, the only slight variation in steering input occurs there at the steering gear box
  3. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    Yes, the tires don’t move. I really should have my wife take a video reflecting several different views of the dead space; the wheel which I’m turning back and forth slightly until I hit the resistance of the steering gear, the steering gear’s slop not reacting perfectly with the steering shaft...
  4. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    So I adjusted the steering box 1/4 turn a couple weeks ago, but it did not eliminate the dead space. All it did was make steering resistance more severe and it was harder to return to center on its own. Since I’m really just wanting to eliminate the dead space, not make steering stiffer, I...
  5. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    I just posted it! I need to also take a video of how far I’m turning the steering wheel back and forth, but I forgot to. It’s about 1 1/2 - 2 inches, before the pitman arm reflects the change
  6. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    This is a video I did demonstrating the turning back and forth of my steering wheel about 2 inches. (Dead space) you can see where at a point, the steering shaft is sawing back and forth a little, but the pitman arm is not moving. It’s miniscule, but on the larger scale of driving and turning...
  7. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    I did use a ton of heat, and it was still tough to turn! I’m assuming Jeep doesn’t really want us to adjust it. I took a video of the steering gearbox dead space today so my dealer will see what exactly I’m referring too.
  8. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    I have a 2 1/2 inch budget boost with adjustable lower control arms on my JLU sport with 33 inch milestar Patagonias. I have about 3 inches (1 1/2 either way) of dead space in my steering before the wheels respond. The lower control arms corrected the wandering all over, but the dead space...
  9. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    I’m very pleased with how well the plasti dip is holding up! I’ve gotten into bugs, and then taken it to the car wash, and they washed right off without chipping the plasti dip! I put about 12 light coats, to make sure there was even application and had a thick coat. It’s been through ice, snow...
  10. Loose steering feels like it has play and drifts

    Installed some RoughCountry Lower Control arms. I adjusted them 1/4 inch longer than the factory arms. I must add also that they are quite a bit beefier than the factory ones. I improved my caster angle and that fixed my wandering issue. I can now take my hands completely off the steering wheel...
  11. Rusty’s Adjustable LCA vrs Rough country

    Thanks for the input! I actually just ordered the Rough Country. was running 10% off sale with free shipping, making it $180 out the door. The Rusty’s with shipping were $252, so For that cheap of a price, I’ll try the RCs
  12. Rusty’s Adjustable LCA vrs Rough country

    I’m looking to get some adjustable lower front control arms after lifting my jeep to correct my caster. Since I’m hoping to spend less than $300 on a pair, I’m torn between Rusty’s and Rough Country. I’ve had rough country parts before and never had a problem, but with an important part in the...

  14. Headliners and Sound

    I got the Hot Heads with the sound assassin strips. I did notice a much better regulation of temperature in the cab! Kept it cooler in the summer, and now it seams to keep it fairly warm in the winter. However, even with the sound assasin strips I didn’t notice any change in road noise.

  17. What did you do TO your Jeep JL today?

    Plasti dipped the front grill today. Grill removal was super easy. 5 minutes to get if off and put it back on. Took 2 cans I also have been shopping around for a roof basket for my mopar roof rails. I didn’t really like anything I found online, they were all either to small or too tall. So I...
  18. Wichita

    Hello Wichitans! I live in west Wichita near Central and 119th. Here’s my jeep. Give me a wave if you see me and my Ninjeep.
  19. Hard top wind noise

    I’ve been thinking about doing the same! The sun rider convenience would be an added plus as well! Let us know how the wind noise from the sunrider is when you get it!
  20. JL Sport Steering stabilizer vrs Rubicon

    Is there any difference between the JL Sport steering stabilizer and the Rubicon stabilizer? I upgraded to 33s on my sport. I’m assuming of the stabilizers are the same, I should be fine without upgrading as the Rubis come with 33s stock.
