Fawkes Off Road Fabrications MiniMax Recovery Mount Review

in Uncategorized by Carl H. Martens

In uncommon fashion, this review is not universal-to-all and applies solely to 1999-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokees, otherwise known as WJs.  I own a 2001 that I refer to as “Dubya J”.  Awhile back, I started to prepare for the zombie apocalypse.  I added a 4″ suspension lift and dual steering stabilizer from BDS, 32″ BFG All Terrains, cold air intake system,  Flowmaster 50 exhaust with upgraded 3″ exhaust piping, Tom Woods front drive shaft, a new I-6 engine, and anything else that would help me survive and keep me amongst the living.  The one thing that I was missing was a front recovery system.  Then after months of searching, I came upon a thread in the Jeep forum with a picture of a MniMax Recovery Mount…it was love at first sight…I had to have it. 

BDS Dual Steering Stabilizer

Over the past year, I’ve had a few occurrences with “death wobble” with my 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo.  If you’ve experienced this you know how scary it is.  The steering wheel shakes uncontrollably and the wheels bounce all over the road.  Very scary.  I try to stay ahead of repair to my Jeep and although this has only happened a few times, it was something I wanted to address right away.  To start, I replaced control arms, bushings, shocks, and a bunch of other stuff.  Got an alignment. Then, the ultimate insurance…I added a dual steering stabilizer from BDS Suspension.  AMAZING!  The dual steering stabilizer bracket kit costs about $120 and each (2 total) gas shock absorber costs $120.  This is one beefy setup and something I would highly recommend to any WJ owner.

Below are some pics I took with my iPhone.
