    Don't we all have the best Jeep ever built overall including our own modifications? Whether it's the engine, drive train, suspension, lights, functionality or looks if you aren't upgrading or tweaking guys and ladies on here are passing you. A jeep is kind of like a house and yard, it's never finished.

    A word of advice at least for TJ owners. Find the two low points on your frame and drill a half inch diameter hole up through the bottom of the frame. There are plenty of slots and openings in the sides to let water, mud and salt in but no way for it to get out. Your thoughts?

    About that track bar......Learned this one the hard way as I do most everything. Since you have a lift it is an adjustable track bar, right? Since you have changed it I want you to measure the distance from the frame to the outside tread on both rear tires. They may or may not be the same anymore, after I changed the track bar Ronda's weren't. The right wheel stuck out about 3/4" further than the left. (Ronda is my TJ) I unhooked the track bar on the lower end which has the adjustment with the full weight of the Jeep on the ground. I gave the left side of the back bumper a little rocking push and they were within 1/4" of being the same. I bumped it again with my bum and it was dead on. I then adjusted the track bar to match the bracket so the bolt would easily slide in and out and torqued it down.

    If you already knew all of this....Never mind!
