Of course your stock sway bar limits your suspensions travel, that's it's job.  So it's only natural to do someting about that to get the most out of your rig off-road.  I've owned a few Jeeps, and never really got the point of the Anti-Rock.  Sure, it sounded convenient, no more crawling under my rig to pull pins and tie things up our of the way.

The trail rating system

I've run into a person or two who have been a little confused by the trail rating system that we all take for granted.  It's a topic that can be slightly confusing, mainly because not everyone follows the same scale, and trail difficulty can be a very subjective topic.  An "easy" trail to me, might be a nightmare to someone else.  In order to level the playing field, and make sure that everyone can pick their trails on the same scale, we need a common set of ratings.

Jeep LJ Rear seat harness.

I've started down the path of adding a 3-point harness to the rear of the LJ.  I've started some rambling on the subect in another blog post.  My intention is to install the harness so that my 6 year old daughter can us it.  I don't do any crazy wheeling with her in the Jeep, but I still want her safe, and I figure this should do the trick. 

I made this video once things were completed, Watching this, and reading this article, should give you a pretty good idea of how to get this all done. Enjoy!

Just a quick one today.  I recently started looking into a rear harness solution.  Something I can use with the kids, and then adjust as they get taller.  There doesn't seem to be a ton of information on the 'net about this.  I can't tell if this is because no one wheels with their kids, or because no one though that a harness in the back would be a good/safe idea?

Where once there was DIYJ, there is now a void.

Well, after much internal debate, I decided to part off and sell DIYJ.  It had sat for so long and I was making little to no proress on it.  The expense of doing what I really wanted to do with it was daunting to say the least.  Building a YJ when I have two kids that I want to take out on the trail with me also seemed a little foolish as well, when I had the LJ which was much better suited for a family.  So I listed a part-out ad on CraigsList, and started selling off parts.  The body, axles, and some other components are all gone.  The frame remains, but I have a buyer lined up for that. 

DIYJ Update

I finally had a chance to get some work done on DIYJ.  Finally I have the tub off of the frame.  After quite some time, I figured out the right combination of straps, and ratchets, and whatever to get the tub off.
