since doing my SOA last summer I have not had the time/ambition to take the jeep out on the trail... well this springs I upgraded to the OTT thighsteer, and some new front springs so we finally got out on Sunday...

good day wheeling,

My daystarted with a rescue of a buddy out behind the university.... Crazy kids and their stock XJ with Blizzacks...

Heep and Gord have those pics. but it was DEEEEEP, towed out and prayed it did not suck water, and myprayers were answered... Gord was first stuck of day in the little open area.... playing around in the mud/rock/dirt..

that toyota is pimp and what are you going to weld on your high steer?

The OTT highsteer is a bolt on App..... you drill into the top of hte knuckle.... the old TR end is a bolt point and you use to of the hub bolts on the back, it IS tight, but Im gonna weld the bracket to the knuckle in a couple spots... nothing major, I know hte knuckle is cast, and it dont call to be welded unless you run over a 35 tire, but for piece of mind Ima weld it anyhow...

this may help....knuckle...

bracket on the knuckle...

http://i157.photobucket.com/albums/t48/giggityjeep/207.jpg

2 tapped holes in the top, 2 hub bolts on the rear and a huge 13/16 for the old TR end... when bolted it is snug, and reviews are good for the kit.... Ima just weld if like I said for piece of mind.

^^ OMG nite and day I posted on jeepforums that ppl complaining about bad steering with big lifts should basically STFU till they do a highsteer....

this made ALL the difference in the world. I tunr the wheel it turns, I hit a bump nothing drives straight and tru, and no wobble, no wonder,

fucking love it

ROFL LOL ROFL at the SFTU Dirka......


I just put in the S T F U letters and it pops up.... LOL IM ROFL omg
