Ohio Feeler

Here is a feeler for all you Rubicon JK owners. What I am about to say is sacreligous, so dont burn me to bad. I have a 4dr JK with 3 inches of lift and 35's. This applies to 2 and 4 dr JK's. I am trying to see if anyone is doing a straight up suspension swap. your stock rubicon (if 4dr) suspension and tires for my suspension and tires. If you are a 2dr Rubi owner you must have a BB.

here is what I have:

Black Diamond 3" suspension lift
Black Diamond Adjustable front track bar (Jam nut is rusted, but it is set correctly)
Medalist Mud King 35x12.50R15
Wheel spacers to clear rims or I can show you where to grind to clear rims (very minimal)
Pro Comp RS9000 shocks.

The Lift has about 30k on it. I drive the jeep daily. The tires are good and still have alot of tread left.

I have stock coils, shocks & track bars if that helps out, already off the jeep. I can probably get ahold of stock rubi wheels & tires, but the tires have 27k miles so would need replaced soon, but I'd have to ask my cousin.

I have to ask....why?

It is more comfortable for me, in the long run, to be rude than polite.


08 2dr x model (Because I'm cheap)
Some dark red color....no it's not purple
Bigger than stock tires, winch front bumper and some other expensive sh*t to make my jeep look cool...(sold my children to afford it all)

I am planning on giving the JK to my fiance who's car is literally about to fall apart. The frame has gone soft on it and I worry everytime she steps on the gas. So by giving it to her, she now will have a reliable daily driver. She is afraid to drive the jeep with the current setup because it has a case of DW that I haven't figured out yet. Also by lowering it back to stock its easier for her to get in and out of when/if we have kids.

I bet your death wobble is your ball joints. I had a shimmy/vibration that started to get worse. Then I had the exact same problem wrong with the death wobble. Did ball joints this weekend. Problem solved.
