G probably already knows about this but i recently saw a thread saying some 05 and 06 TJ's have an issue with the "OPDA cam gear". i didn't read through it all to see if there was something you could do to prevent the problem, but you might want to check it out: https://www.wranglerforum.com/f282/0...ar-148954.html

I know about it and called the dealership, they said there is no recall on my vin #. I will pull the OPDA and look at it.

G wrapped up all the work on the rear suspension yesterday. Here are a couple 'after' pictures:

No more curved springs thanks to ARTEC Industries Spring Relocation Brackets (fit perfectly without modification or messaging) and had a 1" stretch option, which G used.



No more binding crawler joints



The new Jeep was released from ICU and put back into the regular garage until it's time to tear into the front suspension stuff.

Hopefully George tightened up those crawler joint bolts.. Jeep looks great and sounds burly without the muffler.
