Yeah i am a commuter. I wouldnt want to live on campus its not for me. You live pretty close. Is that where you stay for school or is that your home year round?

Its four coil springs. Ive never done anything like this before me and my dad are going to try and tackle it i dont think it will be too bad. Ive never heard of a club like that ill look into that. do you mean a garage like one with a lift? i have a regular garage haha

Yeah i dont get how they can run those. its just annoying haha. ok i park along the road or the dirt parking lot by the horse arena every day mon-thurs. i see your putting a lift on your xj. i just bought a 2 inch lift and im hoping to put it on one weekend soon im so excited. we should get a pic of our jeeps next to each other when they are done haha

Ive seen that TJ at the stop light down the hill from campus. It has a nice exhaust haha but your brunette must too. The rally is really good ive been the past two years. My major is turfgrass management and im minoring in landscape design. Im a sophomore. My name is Nick by the way

I dont have class on friday so im not there that day unfortunately. Does that black TJ have flat flares? I'm not sure if i have seen it. Awesome that would be fun. I live about 25 minutes from campus. Have you been to the Jeep Rally in Somers? I like less than 10 minutes from it and its very cool

Oh, and although I had made it just in case, I didn't need the t-case drop. I have MILD (usually don't notice them) vibrations at 45-46 mph, and that's it.

Hey! Sorry it took me so long to respond, I didn't know you posted, haha.

Anyway, you will not have to modify anything if you do the 3" lift. I didn't touch the steering or brake lines, and I have not had a single issue. You also will not need to modify the track bar. The front axle was shifted about an inch to the drivers side, but once I installed the adjustable track bar, that problem was solved.

Also, with the stock rims and 31s, you will rub the LCAs, but only at full turn (which I rarely run into, except on tight trails or in tight parking lots). My jeep is also my daily commuter to college, and I removed my rear sway bar, but got some disco's for the front. It works out pretty well.

As far as power goes with stock gears, the difference is barely noticeable. You will know you are on bigger tires, but you won't have an issue with power. She will still get up and go when she needs to :)
