I just re-read your original post, are you still getting better MPG in the Jeep than your 6.4? My jeep is worse by about 1.5MPG over my 6.4 w/ 37's. I have a TJ on 35's w/ 5.13 gears, someone changed lanes into my truck so I have an rental 18' JKU and it seems worse than the 6.4 and the TJ, so I'm just curious

Crazy how big of a difference 2.5s make! I run mine on soft while wheelin' and about midway for street. They soak up the bumpy roads like crazy

These are the 2.1 non adjustable. The lift is 2.5. They are way better than my fox2.0’s. I can’t imagine what the 3.3falcons are like.

Gotcha, didn't notice that. Have heard the Falcons are a nice shock

I did the adjustable trac bar and all adjustable lower A arms from Teraflex. The front axle was 1/2 an inch off. I will say the Teraflex trac bar design could really be better with a jam nut that we did add. I added 2 degrees of castor in the front. These changes made a significant improvement to the driving manners.

How do you like the Falcon steering stabilizer?

My adjustable lower arms helped a ton. I got the OMU track bar and yes they should have a jam nut. I put some lock tight on and I check it allot.

I need a rear bar. My back is off almost an inch. And the right rear is about an inch lower than the right with full fuel. Which I guess is common.

I have nothing to compare it to but it seems to be great. My rear end is still square with the stock trac bar.

Don't need a new rear bar, just a relocation bracket will fix the problem. Just had to do this to mine.
