    Thanks a million!

    One quick follow up: I dropped the pressures to 32psi. The weather hereís been 95 all weekend & Iíve noticed after they warm up Iím getting back up to 35-36psi which feels pretty good on road. Iíve noticed a bit of bump steer on the highway. I might upgrade to a Rancho stabilizer or the basic Fox one, but I donít think itís urgent.

    Nice tires! I was rolling beside a JLU, on the interstate highway. I actually saw it have a little of that pseudo-death wobble, people have talked about. It was nuts to see it.

    275/70r18 KM3 Sahara Upgrade!

    Yep looks good! I have yet to find an aftermarket rim I like better, not a fan of black rims and most are, so Iíll prolly go a size bigger tire on the stock rim like you did...

    Yikes! I hit a set of train tracks that weren't parallel with the road. Passenger tire hit first, caused the drivers side to steer a bit and then it hit, steered a bit more then the passenger tire rebounded from the hit. I could see how someone who isn't used to driving a solid axle might get spooked, but it wasn't dangerous. Half the reason I'm even considering the stabilizer upgrade is for the rare occasion my wife drives lol.

    I think Eddie found it to be the track bar. I may be incorrect.
