If you get any vibes with the T-case drop get some adjsutable upper ca's and set your pinion angle.

Same situation as 4.0 sahara

Im in the same boat as 4.0 sahara although i think my budget will be a little higher at around 1600. im interested in a 3- 4" suspension lift with a 1" body lift running 33"-35" tires. What is recommended for a good ride on the road? i know its hard to have both the offraod capablity and the road handling. I will mostly be on the beach and trail with not alot of hardcore wheeling. I just dont want to buy cheap products that will break easy. Any suggestions would be awesome. My jeep is a 2004 X with an inline six. dana 30/35

2.5" OME with 1" BL.

35's are pushing it on the dana 35. I wouldn't even go 33's without some light wheels or a skinny 33.

If you want to run large 33's you could beef it up a little.

What should be done to "beef it up" ? I know tons of people running 33X12.5 's but some run 35's. I d rather do it right the first time and not have to spend more money fixing it up down the road. I never really thought i should upgrade to dana 44's , I was told it wasnt needed. Thanks everyone for the quick responses.

G_Spot: If you have a couple of jack stands and a couple of floor jacks you should be ok. Just up the front axle, and put the jack stands under it to support it off the ground, remove wheels and tires and you should be set. Basic hand tools(wrench & sockets) should really be all that is needed. I'm going to be installing my kit next weekend if it all shows up.

mopar0166: The Dana35 is notorious from breakage, even on 33's its starting to push it limits. Me and just about everyone else would recommend upgrading to a Dana44 or even a Ford 8.8 rear axle. The 8.8 can be had for cheap and requires little to get it to bolt in under a TJ. JUst new brackets for control arms and springs need to be welded on.

I think I spent ~$650 or so. I can't remember. The kit comes with the 1" skidplate drop and front lower control arms and all that stuff.
I did go ahead and get the Bilstein 5100 shocks...worth every penny IMO.

I don't have a SYE. I also don't have any vibrations or any other problems.

My jeep had a 3" BL on it when I got it. I swapped it for a 1" BL rather than to go back to stock b/c the BL kit came with new hardware and it was cheap.

So combined I've got somewhere around 5" of lift. I'm running 33" BFG M/T's.
Do you think you could message me a some pictures of your jeep?

Stainless hasn't logged onto the forum since 12-18-2007 @10:31 AM.

There are a couple other members running the 4'' superlift kit here though.

PM = AMY <<-screen name....she runs the lift and believe she's happy with it.
