Okay, so i know the other details as far as extending break lines, new tie rods and drag links, and re-gearing. My Jeep is a 2004 5-Speed Sport running a Dana 44 in the rear geared at a 3.73. My wheels are MT Classics and are 15x8 with 4.5" of backspacing currently on 32s (
) and a 2 1/2 RC lift. The lift I plan to purchase is the RE 4.5" Super flex lift. I know they tend to sit a full net 1" higher than advertised, thus my questions.
1) With running 35s on this lift, will I have any rubbing when tackling moderate to extreme trails?
2) As a moderately adept DIYer, I plan to do the install myself. Has anyone had any difficulties or problems while installing this kit?
3) Are the mono-tube shocks included with the kit worth the extra 450? Would an alternative such as skyjackers M95 Performance be a better option?
4) If I cannot clear these tires at 4.5", what would be a good budget boost kit or alternative lift?
And yes, my jeep will be used heavily off road and 35s will serve my purpose well. I just prefer to ask questions and do it right the first time if im going to do it at all. Thanks all for your input!
