05 rubicon build

first off I have just recently invested in a near stock 05 Tj Rubicon, and of course I want to mod it up to no end and have an empty wallet. Im wanting to get the best stuff for it and so money isnt that big of a deal as long as I have the money to get the upgrade. I will also try to get at least one mod in per month but that is mostly due to not having enough funds to pile everything on at once. what I will be using this beast for is 70 to 90% offroad desert trails easy to difficult.

so here is what I really want to do first: 4in suspension lift, 33 to 35 tires with 15 x 12.5 wheels, if i decide 35 i will get 1 to 1.5 in body spacers, sye (slip yoke eliminator), upgraded steering, and may get a re-gear in the axles.

next would be bumpers, tire rack, jerry can and mounts, high jack and mounts, rack for the top, winch, and skid plates.

third would be just cosmetics finder flares, maybe herculine the tub, radio and cb, upgrade brakes when needed, and just left overs.
here is what im adamant on getting after i get moved and settled in a new place (should be soon) i will get my lift:
4" Johnny Joint Suspension System with the Antirock automatic sway bar by currie, and Currectlync Heavy-Duty Tie Rod System by currie also.

since i will be getting the 4 in lift i will need a sye kit. first question of probably many is what to get for a sye kit that will fit on an np241 t- case, im not sure if the np231 and 241 cases will intermingle or not.
question two what do you think?

question 1 :
Not sure where you found the slip yoke eliminator for the 241 case.....
I think you need to find out what t-case you have first.... the Rubicon should have the 241.
The Rubicon 241 t-case doesn't need a slip yoke eliminator as it doesn't have a slip yoke to eliminate ....

question 2 :
I would spend alot more time on the forums and online searching. You can save alot of money by doing mods correctly the first time. A little bit of extra research can save you alot of time and money in the long run.

just my $.02

Sounds like you will putting a together a jeep similar to how I built my. I stared off with a stock 05 Rubicon about 16 months ago now its almost complete. I would look for 15 x 8" wheels and nothing wider unless you meant 35x12.50x15 tires. A wider wheel when you air down your tires makes for more of a chance of loosing the bead on the tire.

You should have a capable rig when done, now if you have a Dana 35 rear end I would look and changing that before going to far, and you may also need to re-gear if you go to 35's

Yes your right the 241 transfer case on a rubicon doesn't have a slip yoke. All I need to get is the cv style drive shaft. It seems right after I ask a question I find the answer right after haha.

Yes I meant 35x12.5x15 tires. But I will do some more research to see what size tires I want.
