What does that mean? I always thought both were the same size.

They are on stock steering. This aftermarket steering requires a 1-ton tie rod end taper. The passenger side knuckle tie rod end uses the same taper but it can't be as deep as the driver side. It's a smaller diameter shank.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Saturday I hauled the jeep up to The SHOP in Marion, NC. Payed my $20 and rode into find a group running "Pebble Playground" with rigs built bigger and better than me. Made it past the point where I got denied, about 3/4 way up, and then something let go i the front. Got it off the obstacle and hung out for a while and watched a MJ break on the same spot I did. It was lunch so I went back to the parking lot and loaded up and went to Mica Brewing in Downtown Marion, NC. Hung out there filled the growler and went home. Got home about 5:30 Saturday. Sunday Deanna and I went down to visit her Mom and Grandma in Summerville. We took Molly with us since it was her 1st birthday. We ate lunch at this place called Dog and Duck. Great little Bar/Restaurant that allows dogs on their patio. We then went to her mom's house where she did some cleaning and I had to look at the riding mower to see what it needed. We got home about 5:30 and I hooked the jeep back to the truck to bring back to Hartsville today to tear into the front and see what is broken.

Well, I just bought my lift. Let the money pit start draining my bank account.

I'm doing the disc brake conversion on my 8.25 as well. Are you going with ZJ or Liberty brakes?

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

I started a new build but of the 1:10 scale variety. A local hobby shop had this 2 door body and I had to have it. I'm currently designing the drivetrain layout for it. So far I've moved the motor and trans forward. I'm working on a transfer case and I converted the rear to leaf springs.

Moving forward with the Liberty swap, but may change if I stumble upon something I donít like? I think it will end up being a game time decision.
