I torque mine to 100 too. The stock plates just bend. the all-pro plates on my front bent. The Trailgear plates on the back are fine (more "kick" on the ends.) I have as et of 1/2" TG plates to try out on the front, but I don't think I'll get that done pre-CM2007. They won't bend.

No, don't do dat. The nut is not backing off. The U bolt is stretching. A second nut will just lull you into complacency.

make sure to check them once in a while, I've got 1/2" plates on my front and they are slightly bent from tightening. Don't forget shackle bolts and such too. Have you had it off road yet? I watched a friend in Moab with brand new alcans on his scout and the flexing from the first trail broke them in very nice.

Don't worry too much about it settling, it will, they just need more of a workout than the street will give them.

J,

I have been checking them everyday since I noticed they were loose, no problems as of yet.

I have not had it off road yet but plan to do so maybe later today if not next weekend. Need to flex them a little bit at least so I will be driving it up any wall I can find.........JK

I am getting used to the height eventhough I still thinkit is to tall, we'll see what comes of it. I will bring the shorter shackles to Moab so if it is to tall I can make the swap there.

The shorter shackles won't do much to lower it, but they will severely limit articulation. I say, run what ya brung!
