    Eh.... I've heard of quite a few issues with it. I know there are fixes for the issues, but not worth it in my opinion.
    I'd go with the currie or u turn.

    I am thinking of getting something similar for my zj. Steering right now wanders a bit. I was thinking of upgrading while I replace my tie rods.

    Isn't that just the V8 ZJ steering?

    I have heard bad things about it, supposed to have a lot of bump steer that gets worse with your height. A lot of people have gotten around this by using washers behind the tie rod to stop it from rolling but I would go with another company.

    I assumed so as well. It is all about $120-140 at Autozone. My ZJ does very little dirt crawling if any. It is a mall crawler until I get another newer GC for the wife so that I can play with this one.
    Saying that I am wondering if there is any drawback to the V8 heavier solid parts over the 4.0 hollow.

    I've heard the only real upgrade is the tie rod... the drag link was the same.

    If your rig is dedicated offroad, then not a problem. I am taking mine off next week when my currie comes in. This thing has alot of problems. The worst is the deadspot it has in the steering. I can move my wheel about 1/4 turn in each direction with out moving the tires. It just rotates the tie rod ends. Not good when you are doing 70mph on the highway or going down a windy back country road.
