Starting new lift.

Hey everyone, so I ordered a new Rubicon Express lift as well as SYE and CV drive shaft. Should be here next week. Anyone got some install tips for me? I will be doing myself. I have installed lifts before both on a jeep and on a 3/4 ton truck, bet never messed with a transfer case? Any tips would be great! Thanks in advance!

Btw its the 4.5 super flex kit I'm doing along with the advance adapters SYE n Tom woods DS

I did my re superflex a couple of weeks back. What I used.

1/2" drill
2 floor jacks for moving axles around to fit
Impact wrench
Torque wrench
Brake fluid
21mm socket
15mm socket
13mm socket
Hex bits
Sae set
A good set of extensions
Extra set of experienced hands

I did the back first, then the front.

Disconnect everything from the axle (sway bar, track bar, shocks). Replace the lower control arms first, then the uppers. Always attach the superflex joint first then the rubber joint. Don't tighten everything till its on the ground at static height.

For the sye you will need

Black rtv
Torque wrench
An extra set of hands
Sae and metric sockets


Gear wrenches help tremendously.

Sounds good thanks! Did you do the lift on a lift or with floor jacks and stands? Also did you leave the transfer case on or did you remove?

Floor jacks and stands. Unfortunately I don't have a lift in my garage.
I left the tc on an the skid on.
The only hard part was taking off the front drive shaft at the front tc yoke. It was a bit of a squeeze.
The easy part was not having to torque bolts on a bench or yank and reinstall the case for that matter.
You will also need a bottle pump to get the fluid up into the fill hole on the back of the case.
Be very careful not to damage the pump in the housing when reinstalling the output shaft housing. That part was a bit tricky too.
