Well, I'm not exactly sure but I think if you wanted to go through the work to pull the coils and shocks out and measure them, you could compare the length with others online and figure it out. I say go for it!

1. Paltry, insufficient, and laughable in effort
2.Something that is incredibly lame, weak, or uncool.
3.calling one "weak sauce" compares an individual to the "mild" sauce found at Taco Bell; weak, insignificant, attempting to be like the other hot sauces, but not living up to expectations.
4. A word commonly used in place of "lame" or "stupid."
5. anything that you decide is weaker than you.
6. Weak; terrible...not legit
7. weak in effort or insufficient in size.
happy?

Yep. That's the plan. I didn't want to go with a 4" because of the SYE/CV. That would be a lil' bit out of my budget.

Yea I've spent a lot of time debating on which to get and I've read all sorts of threads and whatnot but I've seen a lot of people that have said the t-case drop didn't get rid of the vibes. I'm not sure how it affected you, but I didn't want to get the 4" and still have some vibes w/ the t-case drop. I guess you could add extra to the drop but that would defeat the purpose of the lift IMO. Plus I've heard that with the 4" you should get adj. control arms because it pulls the rear axle forward in the rear fender. I personally just didn't want to deal with that. But idk how the lift has treated you with the t-case drop.

My tcase drop is very minimal and eliminated all vibes for me. you can also get a 4 incher, a small tcase drop, and do the mml/bl and then be fine for sure. I will be able to eliminated my tcase drop with my mml/bl im excited. as for you, the bds is like 700 or so on their site! plus the extras u mention, and shipping. you might as well get a budget kit (zone, skyjacker) and then get the sye/cv. does the bds have new CAs with it? I cant remember. if it does, I would go for it and save for the sye/cv. its a good lift. I looked at it but didnt have the money at the time and was impatient. after my bl/mml the sye/cv/adjustable CAs are my next investment.

There is a 4x4 shop about an hour away from me that promotes the BDS lifts. He has them in stock and quoted us a price for the lift, steering stabilizer, disconnects, alignment, and installation. That was about a month ago though and it was barely in my budget. However, when I go talk to him about it again, if he raises the prices or anything, then idk what I will do. The lifetime no bs warranty from BDS does sound pretty good though. But there is a shop about 20 min away that stocks Zone lifts. I don't know if I could fit a Zone 4" lift with steering stabilizer and SYE/CV with installation into my budget. But I don't want to do a 4" SL and a 1" BL/MML because I just think that will be too much for 33s. And the hottest fad is LCOG and the last thing I'd want to do is roll it. But I'll go crunch some numbers real quick.

LCOG is the hottest fad now, but who knows where it will be when you get it done being built. You might be building a jeep that will be out of fashion by the time your done I would worry more about doing your own thing. If you were to go to zone, I would suggest the 3 inch plus the bl/ml and sye/cv/adj CA.s Im sure it out of your budget for everything needed for the sye/cv/adj CAs. that alone is a crap ton. Thats the route Im going eventually. I say go with your bds and run that for now with a bl/mml. perfect. with just 3 inches im pretty sure ull be chewin your flares up with any disco'd offroading.

and 4 inches and the 1 inch is def not too much, its what you need to fully flex with stock fenders. trust me I wish I had another inch :P the bl will not change your COG that much, and unless your crawling some crazy stuff it wont matter.

Low Center of Gravity. It centers around keeping your jeep low while running larger tires, and maintaining decent flex, utilizing cutting of the tub and fenders, flat fenders, hi line fenders, a small bodylift to do a TT, a mml, lower suspension, sometimes longer bumpstops and wheels with more backspacing( I think, I always get the BS thing confused lol), and a few other things. basically a big fad in effective trail rigs, particularly crawlers, so they can stay lower but still do the same trails as a rig with much larger suspension lift, but safer.
