Talking What do I need next? Moab Upgrades

It's official we are going to Moab on the 5th of April. I would like to finish up my rig before I go. I just put on the terra flex 3" s/l and have the t/c drop. I want to get rid of it before I go. My research indicates that I can do a 1"mml and a 1.25 Bl and remove the t/c drop, I think.

Do I need to do the SYE while I'm doing this?

I will have new drivelines built before I go so I'm guessing the sye would be the logical choice while I'm doing the rest?

Steer me in the right direction so I can have a trail worthy rig when I go.

Thanks

Mud

Never been to MOAB personally (definitely planning on it when I have the money and am no longer a broke college student). But you don't need a sye cv for a 3" lift typically (in very rare cases some jeeps needed it) but if you ever do want to go bigger with your lift and you have the funds its not a bad idea I guess. I see you already upgraded your axle shafts and locked them (very nice, wish I had the funds for it). Rock sliders are probably a good idea too. Other than that I'm sure someone else will chime in with some more advice, but have a great time and take pictures so all of us can be jealous. Haha

Maybe I should rephrase the question.

I'm going to do the 1.25 BL and 1"mml and install new drivelines before I go. Is it a good idea to do the sye before I buy the new drivelines? If so what direction do I need to go.

Is removing the tcase drop the only reason for the mml and bl? If so you can accomplish the same thing with an sye, double cardan ds, and adjustable CAs. Myself, If I was replacing DS and removing skid plate to get rid of drop, I would install a an sye. I have a JB Conversions ss sye coming on Friday. You can get the standard sye for $200. I went ss cause I am also installing a UCF ultra high skid. For sye you also need at least adjustable uca's. And maybe trac bar relocation bracket. If you replace your ds now and do an sye later the ds will have to be modified or maybe need another one. A 1.25 bl is fine but I chose not to go that route cause I don't like the looks of a bl. Thats just me, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Again I'm not saying what you should do, just telling you what I would do. Hope this helps.

Are you disconnected in the front? You will definitely need longer brake lines in the front if you are and probably should even if you are not. Are you ever going to do a tummy tuck? If you are going to do the SYE and new CV you will need rear adjustable upper control arms. If you do the SYE combo you can get rid of the transfer case drop. The BL will only allow you to tuck larger tires and will have nothing to do with getting rid of the transfer case drop. Oh yea you will also need a rear angled track bar bracket or a new track bar. What trails are you going to be running as that will also make a difference too.

I was hoping to get by under a grand now I see that's not going to happen. My guess on the trails will be only some difficult due to most other guys I'm going with are not much over stock. Only 1 other locked, the others are just lifted with a winch and big tires.

No tummy tuck planned I mainly just want to rid myself ot the t/c drop and add better drivelines.
