When i get home from work I can show you a picture of the RC 4" SL I put on last weekend. Dropping the tcase is not my ideal choice, but it's what's in my budget right now. Even with the tcase drop installed I get driveline vibes between 40-45 mph. A MML will probably fix that. If you want a proper rock crawling rig then you should invest in a SYE and all that entails, but for trails and moderate offroading, you don't need it. What some folks on here don't understand is that not all of us are aiming for competing in KOH, some of us just want a more capable trail rig to have fun in. Though I welcome their opinions on most things, there is an awful lot of snobbery on here if you mention anything cheap. Its your rig, and only you know what your future plans are for it.

However, unless the pictures look God awful and the the benefit of an SYE and CV for on road driving is really beneficial over the TC drop, then I may just stay with it as I have no intentions of off roading unless I do it on a beach which is illegal here as far as I know.
One thing about 4" or taller lifts is that it is very hard to completely/totally/100% eliminate the vibrations they cause with just a t-case drop, even when a MML (motor mount lift) is added. If you have zero vibrations with your current setup, that's very good. If you have any vibrations whatsoever though, you can't just "live with them" as some think they can. That type of vibration will eventually cause the u-joints, bearings, and/or seals to start failing. Such components weren't designed to handle vibrations.

That's not a belly but a gut! Lol. Actually I can handle that until it becomes unnerving which may or may not happen. I can see myself doing $10k worth of upgrades and then the damn thing burning up in a fire and being SOL with the insurance company. Just trying to eliminate and prioritize what I really need and then want later. Thanks for the picture.

I think that is why a 3" spring and a 1.25" body lift is a very popular option for those on a budget. Minimal TC drop (if any), ~4.25" of total clearance for 33"s. No cheapazz non-flexy bushing control arms to deal with.

Like this kit:

My whole idea is to eliminate all vibrations I currently have. I mentioned it earlier which may or may not make sense but the only reason I am doing the Zone 4in lift is because I have no clue what the PO did to mine, the rear right coil is sagging, and the previous shocks were all blown. I installed new Bilstein 5100s and all of a sudden I started getting vibes. Did not have them before putting the 5100s on and it did seem to raise the jeep in front ever so slightly. I was told it had a 2.5 lift in front so working with Kolak, ordered the 3in lift Bilsteins in front and 0-2in lift in the rear. Rebound is much better in the rear but it still lists to the right rear with that spring. That being said, decided to start over and know what is under my Jeep. Just didn't want to get too involved with it as like another member said a minute ago, I have no interest right now in serious off roading. I bought her as a dependable DD in and around town in order to get my oldest daughter a new car. After looking at some of the pics on here of guys and gals crawling, all I see is my wallet getting thinner from busted parts. Oh, and as far as I know Florida doesn't have anything cool like that. Just flat land.

I spoke to a local shop who carries and installs these lifts and they said to steer clear of BL and MML kits. They said they don't look as nice as a straight SL lift and would cost about another 4 hours in labor for install. Would love to save the $$ and do it on my own but am limited with knowledge, tools, and time since she is my DD. I figured by going with a 4 in SL lift instead, it would be easier to upgrade with the SYE and CV instead of having to remove all the other stuff and then do the upgrade. Dunno, guess I didn't read into it and just assumed I only needed the SYE and CV. Didn't know I needed all the other stuff that really makes it add up...

If your not going to wheel it then why lift it? Slap a set of 31's on the Jeep and call it good.

They must not make any money on BL's, you can put one on on an hour in the garage with hand tools and a floor jack. If you don't have one the hobby shop on base will have all you need.....

Sounds like you'd be more comfortable with the 3" SL and 1.25" BL posted up there. I plan to move to 35" tires after I can afford a BL and SYE and everything else I'll need for that. That's why I went with a 4" SL for now. A 3" wouldn't give me enough to clear 35s with just a small BL. Plan ahead so you don't have to buy twice if you want to go bigger eventually.

I had planned on doing that. Was worried about sway and other things that may come with a BL. My condo association forbids working on our vehicles there and our driveways are all gravel. Talk about taking away our man cards Was planning on swinging by the Hobby shop on Corry Station to see what they have. Run by there all the time but their hours are crazy and really don't seem to benefit anyone except dependents who don't work or retirees who don't work as well. 11-7 weekdays and Sunday is closed. I remember the one in PR being open 6 out of 7 days till 2100 and actually helping you rather than just checking out gear and saying "Hope you don't screw it up worse!"

Was someone lying to me? I was kidding btw... I knew they were dependable and always wanted to get another one after my old CJ5 back in 99. Just one with fuel injection and less prone to mechanical issues. Want to spend most of my time driving it rather then wrenching on it.

A TJ with a 2"BB and 1.25"BL and 33's will nab just as many hot ladies.

Sounds good, but I better ask my wife first. She is already frustrated with my Mistress.

Just get a 1.25 BL and don't worry much, I have seen rigs with narrow 33's fit nicely with just the BL.

Inform her it won't cost her a dime because you're a big boy and make your own money. If she gives you some BS, show her where the door is located.

I read some where in the forums about the tcase drop vs the sye and the guy had a valid point. Your lifting your jeep to gain more clearance so why would you drop the transfer case down lower. You are defeating the purpose

Not everyone needs the clearance as not all of us off road. Some like myself just like the looks of it. I am in the heart of Hillbilly country where everywhere other car is a jacked up truck and would guarantee half of them never off road. I am having mine lifted tomorrow and the only off road it may see is the beach and maybe some dunes. No serious stuff here in my neck of the woods. Tbh, some of the pictures I see of people crawling on here makes me cringe just thinking about busting a part or tire or something that costs a lot of $$. Maybe one day I'll get into it but for now, I just want to lift it purely for aesthetics

Well, got my Zone 4in SL kit installed today. I asked the guys installing to take before and after measurements but I guess they forgot and I have no idea what you actually measure to determine your actual lift height. I will say that it seems higher than 4 inches but again, just gauging it off my body previously on a put together kit 2 POs ago installed only telling the one I bought it from it was lifted 2.5 in front and 2 in the rear. The tech said the front was around 3.5 and the rear was at 2 which gave me the shit in the pants look... Rides stiffer but I like it. Was hoping the driveline vibes would go away that I was experiencing before I put this lift on it with the Tcase drop but no... It's actually worse but not too terrible. That being said and looking at the new side profile, looks like I will be saving up for an SYE/CV and adj upper control arms and possibly some 35s unless the coils settle in and drops a bit as she's showing a little more leg than I thought she would. Overall though I like it and the ride has literally no sway like I had before so much better in my mind. A before and after picture.

Thanks Jerry. All in part to the wisdom spread on this board from gentlemen like you Here's a question for you... Can you tell me exactly what I will need for the SYE/CV shaft and whatever else I need? Any recommendations as far as places to buy? Would I need certain measurements or is it just an order according to lift height, year, etc? Wanna get the pieces in place so its a no brainer when I can order the stuff.

I'd get the SYE and CV driveshaft from Tom Wood at Tom Wood's Custom Drive Shafts - Tom Woods Custom Drive Shafts Custom Driveshafts Specialist who will provide unsurpassed pre and post-sales support. Tom is genuinely a good guy who will walk you through the entire process. Click on the 'Tail Shaft Conversion kits' link in the top-middle of the page just above the big u-joint in the center.

The only other thing you'll need will be a pair of adjustable length upper-rear control arms which are needed to raise the rear axle's pinion angle up to match the requirements of the new CV driveshaft.

Once you're on the SYE/CV driveshaft page, you'll be faced with some choices. Tom will walk you through them but for most of us not planning extreme builds, the standard length (non super-short) is fine and makes it so you don't need to install an electronic speedometer calibrator like the Super-Short SYE kits all require. I installed a standard non super-short SYE on my previous TJ and it worked great.

I'd also go for the 'X' version of the driveshaft which simply gives you more spline length on the shaft for not much additional $$$. That just means the shaft can move in/out more when you're offroading without running out of length.

Tom will spend enough time with you that you'll be comfortable when you're done with the order. Mention that I referred you when you call in to ask for Tom if he doesn't pick up the phone which he does about half the time.

Not to jack the thread but, what do the driveline vibes feel like? I have a 4" lift with a t-case drop. Everything seems fine but I'm paranoid by nature so I want to make sure I know what to look/feel for.

Nice lift by the way.
