Thanks, Yvan!Nice car dude !
Awesome, congratulations! What are some of your needs out of the Jeep and what's your basic build plan? Glad my thread helped give you some inspiration!Keep it up, took delivery of my '17 rubicon yesterday and look forward to tearing into it soon. I have a ton of parts inbound and this thread got me stoked.
Thanks for all the info! I think I'm going to try a Big Brake upgrade, but leave the stock master cyl. alone... especially if the sPOD and ARB Compressor don't work with the bigger brake master. I just ordered the MORE ARB Dual Compressor bracket, so I'm stuck with that location.So, I came to that same conclusion on my JKU at the beginning of last year but it was not as thought out as you. I am running a Gobi instead of a frontrunner but we have the same issue. I started with the install of the Gen Right Rear fuel tank with aluminum skid plate. This caused me to go to the Curry Rear Anti Rock sway bar. After that install was done I would get the traction control and the abs kicking on all the time in turns. I also installed the mopar front big brake kit and teraflex rear brackets and large rotors. Works great and really helped braking but forced me to redo everything I had done under the hood for the SPOD and my Viair Compressor that was mounted on the Synergy bracket. Depending on where you mount the ARB compressor you may want to do the brake upgrade first since you can move the SPOD and the compressor around but really can not do much to change the Mopar BBK master cyclinder and booster install. Anyway after getting the rear tank situated I installed the Genesis Dual Battery Kit. I love it but I am still chasing a check engine light coming on occasionally with leaking evap system that I am sure is based on the install of the Genesis kit. I have been on the phone with Shane and he has seen this problem in the past Just can not locate where the leak is. Since I am in California I need to get it done before I have to Smog the vehicle again.
So all this stuff is installed on the Jeep and it is very challanging to drive down the road. The conclusion I came to was to much rear sway bar with the anti rock and crappy shock valving from Fox. Sent the shocks out to Accutune for revalving. They are A+++++. Installed the Teraflex dual rate front sway bar. The front sway bar made a huge improvement in driveablity but depending on what front bumper you have there may be modifications that are unexpected. I have poison spyder and had to do some cutting. Also, the vacuum module bracket I rewelded it back in place after installing the teraflex brackets instead of mounting it in the engine bay as I have no room after installing the Mopar BBK since I have a clutch. Anyway, since the Teraflex swaybar is tunable it was great to get the jeep to handle again and not be so twitchy.

Thanks.... again!!When reading your post that did remind me of the sway bar light on the dash. When you unplug the Rubicon sway bar the light on the dash will constantly blink. The only way I found to get it to stop is to buy an AEV Procal. You can run the Procal settings on top of your TrailDash settings as I understand. I bought the AEV Procal off of Craigslist for $110 verse $170 new. So, start looking for one now to have in your back pocket for when you do the sway bar install. Also early versions of the Procal will not turn off the sway bar light so make sure you get the correct one. Check their website.
