Have a slow day at work, and always love reading through build threads on forums. So hopefully if someone is bored at home or work, they might find this enjoyable!
So my JK has been going through a few changes with hopes that some bigger ones are on the way. In an effort to try to answer "why", our last big trail ride in the last jeep we had was the Rubicon and Dusy Ershim with our daughter, who was about 4 at the time. She didn't enjoy the off camber stuff too much, so when we got the current jeep we turned more towards "off road capable, but more on road compliant", so I turned my attention to AEV. For the last couple of years, it's worked great. But with more playing in the rocks, Emma getting more brave along with a few trips without my wife and daughter, changes need to happen. I have stock drivelines, both of which have recently developed some noise thanks to torn boots on the slip joints. With Jeeps, the answer is double cardan driveshafts and adjustable control arms. I started pricing options without a "band aid" approach and without compromising the on road handling, I started looking harder at long arms. After a ton of research, I ended up with Evo. I'll post a few pics below, but if someone has questions about what exactly happened in certain areas, I took a ton of pics.
