Ironman, That was the logic behind my thought. Heres the kicker, if I do it it will give me roughly 2.5-3" of suspension lift. Will I have to do the slip yoke eliminator or drop the transfer case or can I still run the stock drive train?
SB551, something like that is a long term goal. I picked up this Jeep for $500. It has 200k on it but runs good now that I gave it a tune-up. My regular 02 TJ is a great machine for my wife jeeping around town and light trail runs, but it has a 4banger and I wanted to jump to the 6cyl. I know lots of people like there 4bangers and do everything a 6cyl would do, but me personally, I prefer the 6cyl. I have quite a few things to take care of because the previous owner just put the key in and drove. Plus it previously lived in Jersey so there are a lot of bolts that need to be replaced wire pbrushing to be done. Luckily there is no frame or body rot. It was a little neglected, but also a steal at $500. My intentions are to have it be my daily, build it to a simple lift with 33's, slowly upgrade a lot of parts, then make the jump to a kick ass machine.
