TJ lift with 6 speed

hey folks, i am doing lift shopping, 3-4" for a 2005 TJ 6- speed, and have noticed that almost all kits say" will not work with 05-06 TJ with six speed transmission". What is the problem and what is the solution. is there a selct few lifts i can shop from or is it a mod that i need to do. I am pretty mechanically inclined, but am not a mechanic, so if i need to do some cutting or bending i am pretty open to it just need to know what i am getting into before i buy. i searched the forums but never got a true answer all i found was possible reverse issues. is that if i install the TC drop kit? will the SYE fix this issue? also if i do not do the TC drop kit will this fix the shifting problems but still give me driveline vibrations?

well there's your problem, you're looking at bottom shelf stuff.

check out Savvy Off-Road, Clayton Off-Road, Old Man Emu and Metalcloak.

if you're on a budget like me, and most people around here, then it should be important to spent your money wisely on good parts that are going to last. Alternatively, you can buy the cheaper parts first, then replace them with the quality parts as the cheap stuff fails, but be aware you'll spend twice or three times as much money compared to doing it right the first time around.

This is the kit I have on my 05 TJ Rubicon

Currie Currie Enterprises CJ Axle Parts


Part #: CE-9801H

Description: The Currie Johnny Joint® suspension system kit is a complete package that replaces all eight stock control arms and provides a 4" lift. It is engineered to provide unrivaled articulating flexibility and performance in the most adverse off-road conditions. The Johnny Joint® system keeps the tires in contact with the terrain for maximum traction. Kit includes 8 Johnny Joint® control arms, 4 4" lift coil springs, Johnny Joint® adjustable front trac bar, rear trac bar relocation bracket, Currie Antirock® front sway bar, rear sway bar extended links, and the Currie front and rear poly urethane bump stop kits. Rancho RS9000 adjustable shocks sold separately. When used in conjunction with a 1" body lift and a 1" motor mount lift, this kit allows for efficient use of up to 35" tires.



I have no problems, you may want to sit down when you check the price but nothing good comes cheap. The only thing you get by scrimping on price is a cheap lift kit that you will not be happy with.

Don't get me wrong that lift looks amazing and no doubt is almost flawless. But that lift would quite possibly cause a death. My wife killing me.

Unlimited thank you for letting me know of the "well known" shift boot problem. That's basically the answer I was looking for, not a speech on how I need not enjoy my jeep without spending thousands.

Why not just do it in stages? Maybe first a kit like the Ome 2.5"spring lift. Then save up for the currie or jks 1.25" body lift and 1"motor mount lift. That alone puts you at 3.75" And from what i understand you can safely run this set up with no driveline mods ...Then as funds allow. You can do a tummy tuck which will give you another 2-3" of clearance in the middle of you rig.But . At that point you may need an SYE

Call dirk at DPG off road. He's a great resource and will help you out. I just got the "ultimate" OME kit and it did not break the bank. Plus I know I will have no problems because he IS the man.
