add a body lift and you will not have any rubbing at all nor will you need to extend the bump stops.

ca92yj air down, remove the sway bar, and all of the pos track bars. you will get a much better ride. i have the same lift and i took all of the crape off and it goes every were my frinds do that have tjs and vary pricey lifts.

yea, my sisters jeep is very similar...she's got a 90 yj with a 4" spring lift, virtually no flex, no lockers, and 4wd is busted right now...and yes, she runs 33's just fine, the do rub the back fender flares a little but with a tiny bit of trimming they won't. and we are soon removing the sway bar and prolly track bar

blueJeeps FWIW I don't run the sway bar or rear trac bar on mine and don't mind how it feels, it still handles better than any of the CJ5s I've owned.

Exactly... It doesn't cost anything to take parts off. Try it for a while and decide for yourself.

The YJ sway bar link isn't mounted quite like the TJ's. You could do a clevis conversion on the upper mount, but it leaves the link on the lower mount, and that is just a PITA. TJ's can use the clevis on the lower mount and swing the swaybar and disco'd link up and out of the way, the YJ link stays on the bottom, and if you have an extended link from a lift kit and a lot of flex it can be problematic to just zip-tie it to the axle. Rough Country sells some adjustable quick disconnects for a reasonable price and you can get them on EBay even cheaper, but IMHO, you do want to either take the sway bar off completely or get a good set of QD's rather than try to modify the stock link.

When I put in my lift, I started without the rear track bar and experimented with a disconnected front trackbar and disconnected sway bar. I wasn't happy with the handling without the front panhard or sway bar, but you may not mind the "boat" sensation. No harm in experimenting.

Ok, so I'm a idiot. Whatever.

Admitting that the prevailing wisdom is to lock the front over the back if you have to choose just one axle, and never, never, ever lock a D35, I run a locked rear D35.

Oh, and with the stock axles.

IF I didn't have a 2.5L, maybe I wouldn't. If I had 35's, maybe I wouldn't. If I had a V8, no I wouldn't.

I'm sure one day an axle will snap. That's why I carry a spare, I figure.

I wish I had a 44 or an 8.8 or 9 or a 60, but I don't. Yet. I ain't replacing anything until it needs it, then I'll think about it.

So, let's see...I have square headlights, leaf springs, 31's on stock rims, locked D35, a 4cyl, AND and AX5. If I could afford to upgrade all that crunk, I'd just get a Rubi. As is, I just have fun. In a Jeep.

Dude you spend WAY to much time reading magazines. I have the D35 with a locker no super kit btw and I wheel some of the hardest trails in the south. I have broken one axle shaft on a dry water fall on Mounteagle.
Its all about the stupid pedal, if you beat the snot out of it any thing will break, don't believe go to Tellico and hang out at Slickrock, Guardrail, Schoolbus, etc and you will see even D60 break.

Triple88a to resize pics i use the original program that comes with windows. (paint). to find it go to "start">all programs>accesories and it should be there called "paint" Once you run it open the picture file and then go to the "image" tab and then to sketch/skew and then change the first 2 boxes from 100% to something smaller like 50 or whatever..

If you need more help read up here.. http://www.wranglerforum.com/general...-pic-8794.html

Use photobucket or another simular hosting service. You can resize the photos to usable images.

hutchman I have no experience with leaf spring flex, but this guy does. He built this CJ from a wreck and has documented the build. He really gets some articulation out of the leaf springs. I know a CJ is not a YJ, but what works on a CJ should work on a YJ.......

You need to read the linked page and the at least the next two pages. There is a lot of good first hand knowledge posted there.

WTF?? And Wrangler Forum is not for immature name callers. This is a FORUM. Do you know what that means? It means that anyone can add his/her comments on a discussion regardless of whether they're "square" or "round". We all try to get along on this forum and getting on here as a newbie and calling people names will garner you no allies. Think about what you're writing and ask yourself if you'd want to be treated the way you're treating the rest of us.
