Mick now that you have had it both ways is there anything you miss about the old Brat before the axle swap? anything??
a few things that were better in the brat, but I can live with easily are:
no manual lockouts
ride quality. (since the Brat is still lighter than a stock TJ, it rides rougher even with the coils)
I could fit better on the quad trails before.
Really, when I'm wheeling, it feels the same to me, other than the fact that I don't have to make runs at hills any more, and I haven't lifted a tire yet.... the built ea81 is plenty of engine for my configuration....
76 mph top speed!
