Went to moab over the weekend.

Its good to see some other Utah based MJs out there. I am still building my first comanche, but the end is in sight. There are a couple of us that frequent the NAXJA website (current or former Cherokee owners), but we are interested in getting an email list going with fellow Comanche owners for local trail rides and such. Email me anytime at dbarnhisel@yahoo.com

we did the same thing to the old XJ when it was on 33's

 

go for the JCR 1-ton steering and don't look back man. its BEEFY the jeep is now on 35s and someone's coughcough(MY) bad spotting landed the full weight of the front end on the tie rod... bent up an inch and i had him back off the rock... and she straightened right back out. :cheers:

 

the JCR steering is a must have

So, after shopping around and looking at different steering setups, such as the JCR, I've come to a decision. (with the help of a call to ben hanks) And I ordered the CURRIE steering system, which can be seen at this link http://www.currieenterprises.com/cestor ... px?id=1219

 

So my question is, should I be upgrading anything else? Any and all advice will help.

I personaly think that the currie setup is nice but not as nice as the jcr and on top of that the currie dosnt even use real 1 ton TRE as does the jcr stuf. though i have not personaly run the currie setup i know enuf people that do and would not recomend it for anyone that was gona use it off road as i don't feel it is rock friendly enuf. i personaly run the jcr (in an otk configuration) and wouldnt trade it for anything . but thats just my opnion

as fer other upgrades get cromos and quality u-joints

:cheers:

Yeah I know that the currie set up doesn't use 1 ton ends, but the thought of reaming stuff out scares me. And, I've got a buddy with the currie setup, and he says that the currie components have out lasted 3 wranglers that where on 37's

 

 

And, I'm only running 33's, and only planning on going as big as 35's in the future.
