Hello everyone!

My name is Michael and I am a freshman at VT! I drive a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I also have a 2005 Rubicon Unlimited with some goodies!

Looking forward to meeting new people and having a great time wheeling and wrenching!

Here are some pictures:

Sweet man the jeep looks great. I wish I could have made it down to the beach with my blazer this summer.

Thanks! I am fortunate enough to live in Chesapeake and am only about an hour and a half away from the drive on beach!

I love it so much! Had a rough time with it for awhile with some Death Wobble. It is pretty much taken care of except for some vibes at highway speeds and some bump steer. I do not know what to do to fix it either. It only has 35 thousand miles on it.

How much exercise have you given the front end? It's possible that the ball/socket on the top end of the front trac-bar has been over-flexed and causing your death-wobble. Also could be the tires scalloping. I had a set of M/Ts on my XJ for a while I had to rotate every 6000 miles side to side to even out scalloping that caused vibrations.

And welcome! :mrgreen:

Nothing crazy or anything like that, no rocks. The beach has been the most off-road it has seen and some mud. I THINK we may have over drilled the frame track bar hole when we got an jks adj bar because the bolt was bigger... we h ave made the whole TOO big.

I like my JKS bar, but I wish I had had the funds to get the double-shear version Kevin's Off-road sells. If I keep it, it will get one when I re-do the front suspension/re-gear.

Maybe if my dad lets me bring it up for a wheeling trip I can have you all take a look at it. Otherwise I am pretty much at a lose. There is only like a 2 inch lift on it. I am not sure why it caused problems in the first place.

Everyone says that you can get away with a 2 inch lift in the WJ's w/o needing a new track bar...

I don't know, I put a JKS bar on my Cherokee at 1.5" because the original was worn out and it was/is my DD. I wanted something I could depend on after a weekend off road. Odd to think I off roaded more when I didn't have a job and couldn't really afford it.... :confused2:
