Does your rig ride rough in the cold? Mine's like a dumptruck now. Rides kinda rough and stiff when it's really cold out. The square tires do not help either. They beat like a drum set...thump thump...thump...thump...thump..thumpthumpthump....thump-a-thump.

I like the free cold air intake when you first start going.

Suspension seems to be a bit stiff when it's cold but engine wise it runs good. Starts slow but that's cause I need a new battery.

rough ride

All of your suspension parts isolators (ie rubber grommets/bushings/etc) are now frozen....they are no longer soft and pliable when in the warmer weather. You WILL have a stiffer ride.

Yup. Today it was 42 and the jeep road like a dream. What a difference weather makes.

the ride quality on my work truck sucks, any time of the year, mostly cause of tha 8 springs in the rear leaf packs
cherokee is not bad, considering the type of lift im running

We here in Kentucky usually become stark-raving lunatics whenever someone from Florida comes up here to brag about the weather down south.


On subject, my ride is a bit rougher these winter mornings than it was during the summer.

Wow where'd this old thread come from? lol

I still notice the difference between the seasons, even with my long arm kit. It's stiffer and a bit harsher now that it's below 32 but it recently got above 50 and it was nice and soft. Bushings, bushings, and tires.
