Default Rocks

Took the Suited Up Racing Jeep for a shakedown run on Sunday with the new front diff and 37 Treps. Went to Swan Gully 4x4 for a play through the creeks. Best news was I didnít blow this diff up!!

Very cool, simple but very effective. Thanks for sharing!

Not done yet but the first part of my electrical upgrade has arrived. Pretty happy with how itís going to turn out, I will link a build thread here once I start putting it together.



Thatís 200watt of solar thatís going to run into a intervolt dcc charger and third battery in the boot.
Second battery will be under the hood also fed by solar when in excess supply.

I got one of the Android units recently. I now understand a little of the bizarre behaviour of my JKU.

The new headunit displays a pic of the car with a door open in red, when one is opened.

Several of the procedures in the user manual require you to do something with the control on the drivers door. (Auto lock, all unlock.) But I have to use the passenger door control.

When I open the rear passenger door, the display shows it open, but if I have the front & rear passenger doors open, it displays the front right door & the rear left door!

Something in the wiring, or programming, of my JK is arse about!

Default Lights and Wild Boar grab bars

Got my new Stedi led lights installed, as well as a set of Wild Boar grab bars.

Lights: I went with the Stedi lights as they are ADR compliant and Iíve seen good reviews of them. Overall they are fantastic in terms of light penetration and spread. Huge improvement over the stock lights, even with higher power Phillip bulbs! My only criticism is that the DRL halos could be brighter. Theyíre not bad, but an extra bulb or two would put them on par with oem drls on many vehicles today.





Grab bars: I got these from eBay for about $60 (front and rear) and couldnít be happier. They key to a quick install is to put a bit of anti seize on the bolts and run them in and out of the bolt holes without the handles first to get a feel for the angle they have to be installed at. Once I did that they handles went on in about 10 minutes. Very solid, and minimal interference with the sun visors.

Looks great for sure. Always been a fan of claying first, even on new cars out of the showroom. The paint job on the Jeep is a thousand times better than what is on the new Hilux.

Finally got all the parts and installed a Rancho Sport 2Ē lift with the adjustable RS9000 shocks on my 2014 JKUS. I also got a set of Teraflex Sport front lower control arms and rear track bar bracket to correct caster and roll centre.

Overall, no issues with the installation other than the usual having to cut the inner fender to get to the passenger side top shock nut. Getting the bolts lined up for the new control arms took a bit of muscle, but nothing a good pry bar didnít fix!

I gained about an inch (25mm) all around compared to the previous Teraflex spacer levelling kit (so about 3Ē up front and 2Ē in back over stock), and itís perfectly level at 505mm at the pinch seam corners.

Initial impression is WOW!!! The Jeep rides soooo much better than before. Smooth, controlled, no more brake dive or wallowing around corners. The added caster from the longer control arms is noticeable, and the steering wheel centres much quicker. On the highway itís much more stable and only needs one finger on the wheel. This demonstrates to me how much even a small lift (e.g. levelling spacer lift) impacts on the Jeeps geometry without some sort of correction, such as caster and/or rear track bar.

Side note, I also found the culprit of my slight front wheel shimmy. Turns out the shop that installed my new wheels and tyres didnít remove the retainer clips front the discs. Sorted now.

Pics!

Iím happy!!!!
