I would do a 3" lift and BBL and MML at the same time. You will be much happier. First you lift your Jeep to get it higher off the ground and with a TC drop kinda defeat the purpose.
With a 4" lift you are opening up a whole different can of worm. A lot more involved, in terms of more other components you will need to get and installed to have it done right.

this is from PORC ... is this the complete thing?
|09-05-2011 08:08 PM|
this is my problem. i found out the kit needs some other parts. i came to terms with that. now i face that the SYE kits out there need other parts and modifications out of my mechanical expertize which kind of bums me out. puts a big dent and halt of my plans for the jeep.
@thecheezman: i should have gone that way. it kind of makes sense. i didnt think about it like that when i bought the lift.
@king0517: i will let you know how it goes. hoping everything goes well. the jeep is my DD and without her i wouldnt be able to see my girl down in VA beach.

|Redsand||i was fine for a few years after my 4 inch lift with a t-case drop and no sye, and i ran the stock uppers, but they were a little tweaked from wheeling,|

|BoBowski||You can do a hack and tap sye or check out PORC. PORC has the lowest price on an sye. As far as the driveshaft goes, find one from a an xj(front) and have it cut and rebalanced. Its a lower cost alternative that works.|

Just wait till you have your parts and put it together. I don't have any experience with the lift you bought so pls let me know how it works out for you.

Plus, it may be 500 more smackers, but thats 500 bucks towards a reliable lifted rig that is safe and wont surprise you with problems and costs down the road!

|htkrph||wait until i get SYE kit. plan on waiting till i have the SYE kit. then upgrade the upper control arms. yeah so something that came started at 500 will end up at around 1k? i only plan to run 33".|

unfortunately the control arms that come with that Zone kit suck pretty bad, and those type of poly bushings are known to rip the control arm mounts off the axle...so you'll eventually want to upgrade the lower control arms to Currie or Rokmen. until then, i'd suggest sticking with the stock arms, unless you end up with caster issues in front and need adjustable lowers.
the rear pinion "cams" are crap, do not use them. huge PITA. you want adjustable upper control arms for pinion corrections.
|09-01-2011 01:34 PM|
|htkrph||the kit says... it says it comes with the transfer case drop and "rear pinion cam locks that rotate the rear pinion for proper driveline angles" ... so i should be good for the time being?|

|KKhamesi||i kinda have the same question but mines for a 3" zone lift. i dont think i need to do anything except for installing the lift kit|
|09-01-2011 09:47 AM|
|my98tj||if it didn't come with a transfer case drop bracket, you'll probably need one. you might get lucky and not need one, but i doubt it. after you're done get an alignment and drive it.|

After Lift... questions.
My 04 4.0 TJ, is finally going to be lifted. and i couldnt be happier. But after i bought the lift i started reading on the transfer case drops and SYE kits and stuff. Makes me worried about the lift and glad i havent installed it yet. Alright so my questions i'm going to be installing a 4" Zone Off road lift. will i be needing a SYE kit right away? if i dont how long can i run the lift without it. if i needed right away i might just wait till i get it and install the lift then. I know after the install i need a front alignment. Anything else i should do? Im doing the lift myself i just want to make sure we i do everything at the same time. help ?
