    Nicely built Jeep. Grand National (turbo-less) engine, but not one photo of under hood. Just an even-fire 3.8? Another “rare” hardtop. Strange choice of powdercoating the whole body. Hope it was done well, prep is everything. I’d like to see more of the steering box setup. Not doubting what they have in it, but the price is a bit steep to me.

    Is that tie rod set up kosher? Looks a little hokey but maybe it's okay.

    Mostly gets a like from me. It would never pass PA state inspection without adding some atrocious fender flaring.

    Looks like a lot of time was spent in the build, but why no engine pics? All that power and no highway driving? Looks good though.

    The cage welds make me a little suspect of the rest of the build.


    I’ve seen worse, but heim joints last about two weeks on the street before they develop play, and using them in that fashion at the knuckle without a double-shear design is putting A LOT of stress on the knuckle arm.

    that seems to the CW around here and on other forums, yet a lot of suppliers seem to promote them...eg rough stuff, WFO, etc....why? I know they have them around for coil over set-up with links etc, and they are 'easy' to build and customize lengths etc - is it just availability and ease of assembly?
