Lift Mods Advice

So, I am going to be installing an RE 4" Kit this week, which does not come with a drop pitman arm, will address need after install, unless anyone thinks I should go ahead and do that with the lift? Later plans for my Jeep include:

- RE reverse shackle kit, give me another inch so I can go with 35s
- CV Driveshaft
- Ford 8.8 axle with Superior Axle & Gear Super 88
- Re-gear front and rear with 8.8 axle

I don't really have the money for these mods now, think they can wait till I go above 33" tires and 4" Suspension lift? Also am I on the right track of what is needed? Any other advice?



do the wave, don't leave me hangin

You will most likely need all of the aforementioned upgrades before you go with 35's and you may need a small body lift as well to give it a little room to flex.

Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

I am thinking about putting my stock pitman arm back on and fliping the tie rod with this insert. LINK
