Airborneguy You can see it really well on my Jeep Profile page. The letters are slightly thicker than the stock ones Jeep uses, but its barely noticeable.

Merle Swaggard Ok installed Currie Heavy duty 1" Motor mount lift. Glad I installed this!!!

One of my stock motor mounts had two cracks in it and was 75% on the way to completely coming apart. This was kinda tricky being by myself and needing to be under and above the hood at the same time. I did it but it was magic how I pulled that off. I also flushed out my Radiator it was horrible. Rust mud you name it. Went with Zerex Go5. Should be good for a while.

Pics of the broke stock mounts below

GoldenSahara00 3 inch zone, this will be my first lift and I dont have the funds for something as nice as RE right now, years down the road I plan on going a little bigger. Yea I think I will settle with the 1.25 BL



Haha wow 10 inches is ridiculous your right, dang. and I just hate you for getting the kit that cheap... holy crap.

very nice! yea I am going to look at the whole tummy tuck and all that sometime, but I have about 100 mods on my list, Im just gona get this lift done first hahahah.

thank you sir! What lift did you go with?
Yeah the 1 inch body lift looks great I would never go over 1 inch now.

I did a lot of measurements before lift and I got serious gains with the superflex. With the 3 inch body lift and 4.5 RE lift I had 10 inches of gap from bottom of fender to top of my tire it was Rediculous!!!

I got OVER 5 inches with just the lift alone weather it settles down or not is a good guess. I also got very lucky with the kit. I scored it off Craigslist for a whopping 250 dollars only thing was missing was extended brake lines (which only yielded 2 measly inches and I plan on longer lengths) and control arms hence the teraflex arms. That kit was a steal !!! it was my dream kit I think its a great height it just was not in my budget at full price and who knows if Rubicon Express will sale again.

I hear there is a mod you can do to bring your fuel tank up higher with a body lift I am gonna research that I really like the look of a jeep with a good lift and a Tight rear end with minimal gaps!!

Merle Swaggard Ok first few pics here shows the Rubicon Express superflex 4.5 and with 3 inch body lift. Looked too darn goofy for me. So the last couple pics show 1 body inch.

I will be adding a MML this week and then see if I can take off the TC Drop. I have the SYE kit and Tom woods drive shaft on my shopping list.

I run Teraflex adjustable control Arms and I will be installing Ironman4x4 upper front and rear arms with Johnny Joints. I still do not have disconnects yet so no flex pics but I am looking forward to checking my flex with the add-ons.

Merle Swaggard Ok here I installed a Rubicon Express 4.5 superflex removed the coil spacers up front and custom made a Transfer Case drop kit.

First few pics are RE 4.5 just installed on front and 2 BB on back not too bad off level.

Last pic is front and back installed. 7.5 worth of lift on 33's looked goofy to me so I wanted to take body lift off asap

Also painted soft top black with Vinyl and fabric paint turned out great

Hey thank you for the compliment. I used Wheel paint from Autozone. Just cleaned them very well and did light coats they actually looked like gun metal up close very cool looking I sold them and used money for 33's. The paint held up very well!
03-30-2011 07:05 PM
Merle Swaggard This is with 33 inch tires 3 inch body lift yuck again 2 inch Budget boost!

couple of wheeling pics.

My jeep performed well wheeling without disconnects however I fried my alternator hitting the Mud Holes way too hard!!

Last pic Compared to the Jeep beside me I was pretty level He has 4 inch suspension

The Evolution of " Apocalypse " 2000 Tj

I wanted to share my build up and Mods. 2000 Tj 4.0 98k miles.

I started with this 2 coil spring spacers with 31 inch tires.
Previous Owner must have put this on and it had a 1 inch BL

Not knowing any better and wanting it to be lifted I added a 3 inch body lift yuck!! Let me tell all you fellas thinking about going over 2 inch body lift don't do it its so ugly and gives you false lift and all sorts or problems.

I graduated to 33 inch tires to look at the comparison!! I added smittybilt stinger and some black paint this bad boy is gonna be black on black on Black!!
