Use the video with the Allman Brothers rolling in the background. That's my suggestion! : thumbs:

Yeah, but that's "Zone" and they normally cater to the half broke kid with an incomplete hand me down tool bag.

Lift kit should take no more than 30 minutes per corner with the right tools. SYE kit will take 3-4 hours. Neither are hard jobs, but a lift kit is easier than a SYE kit for the newcomer.

I got ya. I'll probably give Tom Wood a call and do it myself with a buddy's help. I traded my 66 Mustang for the Jeep so have some experience wrenching (relaxing suspension, rebuilding brakes, etc.) Not an expert but I can follow directions with the best of them. I'll be sure to post pictures of the lift tomorrow.

IMO lift kit is easier but takes longer. For a first timer a lift can take a long time especially in the rust belt.

Picked it up today and very pleased with the drive. It's very smooth and feels better than stock. Looks like it definitely added more than 4" but I'm sure it will settle.

Here's a better view. Painted the flares tonight.

Hoping it settles a bit so the tires don't look so tiny.

Looks great!


How is your rake; a little slope towards the front?

It seems pretty flat. I'm parked on an incline in the picture. Enjoying it so far. Hoping to be in the market for some bumpers in the near future.

Got a quote for my SYE and CV drive shaft today from Screamin' Lizards Customs in the DFW area. For an Advance Adapters SYE, a drive shaft from reputable local shop, fluids and labor it's $800 even. Does that sound reasonable?

Yeah I would say about 4 hours labour for that shop, fluids are like 10 bucks, shaft will be 200-250, sye is a 300. That means their labour is 40-50 an hour roughly? I still think you could do it. Heck I'd do it for you for 100 bucks after parts if I was nearby lol. It's not bad.
