Rokmen belly up skid...

So I decided it was time to spoil myself and order the Rokmen belly up skid and a Tom Woods driveshaft / sye combo. Put the order in today, and will most likely have it installed next weekend (Pics will follow, of course).

Anyone have one installed on their TJ and have a pic?
Aaaaaanticipaaation.....

Don't have them on my jeep. But...??? Did you get adjustable rear upper control arms to set your pinion angle?

hey Ryan full circle fab in Indiana has some amazing adjustable arms for 150 right now. FYI I have seen them in person and they are top notch.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

Congrats on the Rokmen purchase . . . I really dig their products . . . I have their rockers and they are top notch . . . fit, welds, design . . . pure quality. I know they usually install the TT with a BL, but was told by them that it'll work without a BL but would require some massaging . . . I'll have to censor his comment, but I think it was something to the tune of having to stuff ten pounds of poo into a 5 pound bag! Which route are you going to go? x3 on the rear UCAs if you don't have them already . . . although they aren't cheap, the Rokmen CAs with the JJs are sweet! You may also need a new CV style bracket for your rear trackbar to compensate for the new pinion angle. Good luck with the install.

You'll need them for the sye too. When adjusting the hieght of the transfer case or the length of the drive shaft puts a different angle to the driveshaft and pinion.

Already have the jks body and motor mount lift installed, so no worries there. And yeah, i will have control arms for it before it goes in. Just haven't decided on which yet. No worries though.

Just drove for the first time a couple days ago, and it is *really* sketchy. The hand is healing though. Soon, very soon... Believe me, I want to get out badly.
