    No clue. That is how it came. Checked out their website and that is how it looks there too.

    This is what they have written for fixed front UCA's:
    The front arms feature 2 length setting options built in for minor caster adjustment even in a fixed length arm.
    My guess is that it's the same thing for the adjustables, but why would they put holes on them? Isn't that the point of adjustables (to be able to correct caster)? I dunno why they'd put the holes that close to one another though, doesn't look too smart on their part.

    I thought that too. But its pretty thick metal and they have been selling them for a few years now. If it was a design flaw I would imagine there would have been a change in production.

    They have yet to sell me a bunk product in over 3 years (checking old emails and I bought my first part from them in the beginning of 07) so I completely trust them.

    Now for the front:

    These are IRO high clearance Lowers with the Iron-Y cut off and I bought adjustable uppers from IRO and had them fab up some brachets and I have an easy adjustable upper setup. I mainly did this to fit the new extended bumpstops and drop brackets. The IronY bracket was contacting those parts due to the axle being pushed fwd 1".



    Installed the TB and PA drops and it has almost completely killed the bump steer. I need an alignment but it rides NICE.

    Sup guys,

    Merry Christmas.

    After a bunch of vm's and finally getting a hold of his employee via text I let him know I NEEDED it by Christmas or I needed to take it somewhere else he got it done Friday.

    He does good work, he is just crazy busy and short staffed with the loss of his fab guy. He is gonna hire a new welder in jan.

    Prob will use Aribia Overkill next time as they are 100% jeep and do mainly fab.

    They couldnt pull the old spring pads so I got some from Ballistic.

    It should be ready in the next week or two.
    Are they now offering this conversion? Or is this a special case scenario.

    Hey dude, just bought an 03 WJ and was browsing around and found your thread. I thought "that jeep looks familiar..." then realized I'm pretty sure I see your jeep every day on the corner of El Camino and San Antonio. Am I right? Can't be that many WJs on 35s in that color... btw I work in the small blue office building with red doors right next door to where all that construction is.

    Anyway, sweet rig. Coming from XJ land, I have a lot to learn.

    How is your steering holding up? Would you happen to have any advice or tips about tightening up my steering and get rid of the bump steer I have when I moved to Clayton's LA 6".

    The track bar drop from IRO looks like it will help get my drag link and track bar back closer to parallel.

    I'm also thinking about doing the tie rod flip, but since I'm running JKS/Kevin's HD tie rod and drag link, I'd have to flip both, unless I switch my tie rod to IRO's OTK tie rod like you have.

    What shox did you upgrade to? When I went from Rubicon express to Bils it really make the bumpsteer worse due to the softer shox.

    Yup it really helped my steering and bumpsteer, mine was even more accentuated due to flipping the draglink. It hasnt been this tight since I was at 4" lift.

    You can just flip the draglink, you dont have to do the tie rod, it just gets both up higher, if you have the access to a buddy who can weld do the flip, if not the IRO filp is awesome and as sturdy as I got it 3 years ago.

    I too am running the jks draglink.

    I hope that helps, let me know if you need more info.

    I'm running Bilsteins as well. I could have sworn I read that if I do the tie rod flip, I'd have to flip the drag link as well as the TRE on the flipped tie rod would interfere with the TRE of the drag link.

    The IRO OTK tie rod looks nice, but if I don't need to spend the money on it, I won't.

    Ah I misunderstood, I thought you meant the other way around.

    Yes, you can NOT flip the tie rod and leave the draglink in factory position.

    Our bumpsteer was caused by different issues. It may be a different solution you are looking for. I will tell you that flipping the DL and TB will only worsen you bump steer. That being said if you decide to flip the links then the IOR drops are a great solution.

    hmmm, more bump steer is not what I'm looking after. I'll look into the options more, but off the top of my head I am thinking if I do the TR flip, I'll go with IRO OTK, and possibly the track bar bracket to get the drag link and track bar back to parallel.

    Thanks for the help and for the build thread. Nice WJ by the way.

    Some fun news.

    So got a chance to hit the snow, Party and board a bit.





    Pops wanted to fix his bumper and replace the latch and went to Arabia's Overkill and was talked into a new bumper. Gotta say way BLING.



    I heard a clicking while driving coming from the back. Saw this and said WTF is it!!



    Learned real quick how to flatten a 35" tire with the quickness.



    Not mine, must have come off a work truck or something. Bastards!! Probably to big to use a plug.

    Not to my recollection but you would have to think I am pushing out some bad karma to have this shit happen. Oh well, life works itself out.

    Thats why i have a spare tire and an extra rimless 35" mtr sitting in the rafters of parents garage.
