But you would probably need new driveshafts to clear 35s if you didn't drop the t-case, right? Especially if you didn't use any body lift, but instead went with a straight 3-4" suspension lift? I've got to think that's going to generate crazy angles otherwise--just like on a JK.
I've heard non-rubi TJs need slip yoke eliminators, though I truthfully have no idea what that really is. Don't know what a "slip yoke" is or why it must be "eliminated."
Is the motor mount lift related to the body lift? Sounds like it, but again, I'm painfully ignorant pre-JK.
I do know my brother's got my dad's old TJ and I have PLANS for that jeep. Our dad's gone now and we've got to do something he'd think was cool.
