I bet the track bar is binding, you might need to get a different track bar backet for the axle.

Thats kinda what I was wondering because thats the only thing that was still hooked up when I put the uca's on. Are the brackets expensive or hard to put on.
Do I really need the track bar? Can I disconect it like a sway bar?

A track bar bracket shouldn't be to much, just make sure it is for a CV style driveshaft. No you can not just remove it as it keeps the axle centered. There are lifts that triangulate the uppers or are a wishbone so you can remove it but that is a whole other ball of wax.

I wheeled the piss out of it without a problem. I did toast the belt but that only stoped us for about 20 minutes.
I hate to say it but I love this jeep, I hate not having 4 doors and no room but I think I can live without it. As far as wheeling a stick goes I had no problems what so ever and this thing will go through anything.
I would trade it but it would take alot to get it off me.........
