Retired from Corrections....I have stories.
Overall, just a lot of bolt on stuff, hate the grill, and for fuck sakes, can you even see out the windshield with all the decals???

I do like the color and the way it is accented in the Jeep. Like the seats. Would be a great Florida Jeep

Please tell me I am looking at this wrong, But isn't the duel shocks bolted to the same rod on both sides?

your seeing it right, that’s how they bolt on, the center bracket is bolted to the axle, even though it looks like it’s connected to tie rod in pic....:)

It ain't the worst thing I've seen done to a jeep. Ain't really good either.

Why? Seriously, why? Are these builders all 14 years old, or do they think we are? That has no reason to exist except the hope that people will look at it.

I was going to ask as I noticed you run that setup with Fox IFP's. What made you go this way versus a through-shaft single Fox?

I’m old school...lol. It’s how I’ve always run my stabilizers. I never trusted a shock on one side of my steering components, I don’t have any first hand experience, but have heard others complain about pushing or pulling with them. I’m a firm believer in equal force ss. These new through shaft ones are nice and they’re equal force so I’d probably run one some day. But this is setup I have, I know it and am comfortable with it. It’s high and tight, out of harms way. It’s just not cool these days to run them....lol. But I believe some day they’ll be cool again, like white letter tires and mini skirts....:rock:.......:)
