Sorry for missing your question, Aaron. Yes, it drives very nicely down surface streets and the highway.

Welcome to the site, Jake. Your question would be much better asked in one of the technical forums, though. Good luck working through it.

My axles are newly rebuilt, so I'm hoping for years of trouble-free service.

Due to changing life priorities, I'll be listing my LJ for sale this week for $21,500.

KBB (stock) is $17,238. Do the math on all the upgrades alone, and they easily surpass this.

This Jeep is very well-built, and hasn't been wheeled since being completed, with the exception of the Jeep Blessing Moderate trail (suitable for stock rigs), and the test course at RockSolid Performance.

I'm the original owner, it's stored every winter, and it's been babied (less than 54K miles).

More details to come...
