Did you put on a transfer case drop kit or SYE with the lift? What shocks did you put on?

Yeah, I clicked on this thread with the intention of making a crude comment. Glad to know my mind is not the only one in the gutter.

Yes I dropped the transfer case and I got the 2.2 shocks that came with the kit. Sorry for the title didn't think that one through.

The title of this thread made me LOL. I have nothing to contribute to this other than that immature comment.

As a test, you could jack the rear of the jeep off the ground so the rear wheels are in the air, making sure to chock the front tires well and do it on flat ground. Then start the jeep and watch the rear driveshaft and tires as someone accelerates. See if anything seems abnormal.
