I dont think thatbother models are junk when I bought my Rubicon model I could have got the Mojave for same price but I didn't want that junky Mojave . No front locker ! To each his own. I wasn't about to pay for something without a locker in both axles.Well be aware "simple" or "cheap" will yield those same results,
This is thread is on par with members that discuss the MPGs they get.
You bought a lower end model with over expectation of the the results of paying less up front and then throw the parts cannon at it.
Before you fire back with some smarty ass comment...........go drive a stock Mojave you didn't want to pay extra for up front. I'll wait for a non-bias response.
The money you have spent since then, WAY FAR surpassed what you would have spent for a Mojave on a 2" AEV spacer lift (under $600), Mopar LCAs (under $80) and Fox Ats steering stabilizer (about $400). So tally up the cost of parts/labor you've spent thus far with sub standard results.
My experience and many others will vouch for..........I have what I want, drives like a Cadillac at 80-90 mph and is a trail boss. Feel free to drop into the Mojave section and I'll be validated. I'm not talking shit, straight truth. I have nothing to gain from talking shit......because well I didn't waste money on unneeded shit in my build.
Just like buying stocks, bonds or crypto currencies........due dalliance is you money maker
