Will do, the UCA are getting replaced no doubt I am more concerned about my LCA, but I might just run it till they break and then upgrade.

Yeah sorry. He had stamped UCA/lca. The lcas are still on the truck. I'm
Sure you could throw some aluminum ones on. I think the ball joint hole in the knuckle is the same for them. But yeah until you start flirting with midtravel kits there aren't really any options for them.

Yeah that wont come until late summer probably, so plenty of time to research and come up with a plan, the only ones ive found add like 2.5 inches of width to each side, love that look but its already pretty wide haha have trouble parking in my apartment with the mirrors sticking out both lines.

Not a lot of ways I'd want a white truck but that's one of them. Nice looking truck, have fun with it.

Side question: V8 and a bed are really the only reason you got rid of the JKU? If you had the 3.6 w/ 3.73's I know you aren't getting better power with the 5.3/3.08's... My mom and sister both have JKU's and the more I drive them the more I wonder if I really need a big truck or could get by with a little landscaping trailer on a JKU w/e a 6 speed manual...

Thanks!

Yeah white trucks remind me of work trucks too much but this one was a little different and I thought it looked good.

Yeah it was a little more than that, I had the V6 with 3.21s and 33s 2.5 in lift. It was not super bad but when traveling it would constantly be shifting gears when cruising if there was a slight change in grade or wind. It was annoying and the V8 is a lot quicker my brother has a 2016 Yukon with the 5.3 and that was way quicker than the jeep. This truck should be even quicker since it shaved off a lot of pounds and I should be able to pull a lot more if needed.

I never towed with the jeep but it has spring all around they are not ideal but if its not to many pounds you should be fine. I dont particularly hate the jeep and I dont regret it but it is different, I also kinda missed the nicer interiors and I started to travel quite a bit and I wasn't enjoying it as much. The Jeep was really fun and I miss the size but this truck is a beast!
