MOz Oh, almost forgot...pickup some stainless steel extended brake lines for the front.

MOz I just instaled the RE 3.5" kit and I highly suggest their monotube shocks. They have a very nice ride (on road and off road).

You have the same front end setup that I'm running (SRC bumper and winch). The added weight tends to lower the front a good 1 - 1 1/2". I would suggest picking up a front pair of adjustable coil spacers to make up the difference.

I'm still saving for an SYE and CV. The vibrations are not a major issue but it will need to be finished soon.

Good luck.

AzTJ I know that place

What size tires are you running with that setup? Aiming for something like that by winter next year.

Here is the list of what i have compiled.

1. The Coils
2. New Shocks (my skyjacker ones suck anyway) OME/Doshtech?? how bout a remote res type??? just asking
3. Remove rear sway bar
4. JKS Quick Disco's for the front
5. Possible T-Case Drop till i can afford sye and rear drive shaft and adjustable control arms

i think that would cover it to get me an xtra 1.5 inches to keep my tires outta the fenders

anyone opinions are welcome

I've got the 3.5" coils. Here's the way I did it:

1" body lift
1" motor mount lift (helps with the rear drive shaft angle a bit)
teraflex rear track bar bracket
Rubicon Express RE1600 front adjustable track bar
Rubicon Express rear extended links
RockKrawler front lower adjustable short arms (to correct the caster)
removed front sway bar completely

thats about it. Pretty simple setup. I can fit 35s with that and it does pretty good. The adjustable front lower control arms are important to fix the caster otherwise the death wobble can get pretty bad. All the other arms are stock and they flex really good.

I didn't drop the skid. But I have a rubicon without the slip yoke so I'm not sure if that made a difference or not. I'd try it without the drop first... you may not need it.

*edit: oh yeah, and new shocks. I can get the part number for the exact size I have if you need it. I had to experiment with a few different lengths.

AzTJ You are gonna need rear upper adjustable arms along with a tcase drop if your not going to get an SYE right away.
07-24-2007 09:03 AM
4Jeepn front adj trac-bar
rear too, or new bracket to use with stock one
brake lines should be ok
adj arms would help and i think you may need the sye sooner than later

4.0l sahara I would get some new trac bars.
