Under Cover Fabworks, LLC - No Body-Lift Needed Skids
A 1" body lift isn't all that bad. With it you can get an even shallower skid. Also allows raising the gas tank by 1".

|ReconBubba6||Alright, thank you both for the valuable information...you just made everything make sense and answered every question and doubt i had!|
|03-09-2012 01:29 PM|
Cool, thanks for the clarification.

|ReconBubba6||Also, am i gonna need adjustable LCAs right away, or will I be alright with the Zone LCAs provided in the lift?|
|03-09-2012 01:21 PM|
|ReconBubba6||Did you do the lopro tcase mount or do you have the bl+mml?|

Here is mine...just to give you an idea.

You don't need a MML for tummy tucks. It's just recommended, it's also recommended with a BL. UFC has a no BL skid, but I think it's in your best interest to get the BL and go with an even slimmer skid.
I forgot that the kit comes with a BL so he doesn't really have to worry about that.
|03-09-2012 01:08 PM|
|oIIIIIIo||I believe you will need to install MML and BL for a tummy tuck.|
|03-09-2012 01:01 PM|
|ReconBubba6||Ok, thanks...I wasn't sure...Again thanks for the help...You just solidified my decision on the lift, UCAs, and CV+SYE as soon as I return to the states|
|03-09-2012 12:55 PM|
The two are the same. Low profile skids are called tummy tucks or belly up skids.
Check out this site for some good skids to choose from. Also look at Rokmen and Savvy.
|03-09-2012 12:53 PM|
Perfect...thank you for the help!
Also, is there such thing as a low profile skid...that is not a belly up conversion? Now i'm trying to think farther ahead after all the goodies are installed
|03-09-2012 12:34 PM|
|TheTJRod||You won't need the drop. The t-case drop is just a bandaid and the SYE is the cure.|
|03-09-2012 12:29 PM|
I figured that much, that's why I decided to go ahead with the CV + SYE...
Another question...If I have the CV + SYE, do I still need the T-case drop?
|03-09-2012 11:32 AM|
Sounds like your doing it right. 2.5-3" SL is where a SYE kit is recommended. You must get adjustable CA's when you install a SYE to, as mentioned, adjust your pinion angle.
Oh and doing a tummy tuck pretty much requires a SYE and body lift.
|03-09-2012 11:19 AM|
Thanks for that...it actually answered exactly what i was looking for...I'm gonna order the Zone 4.25" and get currie adjustable UCA and a Tom tail shaft + CV conversion kit to round it out...Does that sound about right, or am I missing anything? I have a Zone lift and I like they're products and I don't do HEAVY wheeling so I felt it was plenty for me, and the CAs + CV finished it off IMO...
Anyone's input is more than welcome

|jeepjones||A body lift has nothing to do with the suspension it just lifts the body, so yes a CV driveshaft would be your best bet. When you do the belly up all you will need is adjustable upper control arms which you should already have to adjust the angle of the diff for your CV driveshaft. If you do not have adjustable upper control arms you will never get the driveline angle proper regardless of what type of driveshaft you have.|

Zone 4.25" + SYE/CV
I'm planning on getting the Zone 4.25" lift and I was also going to get the Tom Woods SYE/CV kit to go with it...Is it necessary or recommended to have the SYE/CV even though I'm going with the BL? Also, will I have to do purchase a different SYE/CV kit if I do a Belly up conversion at a later time?
