|hulkboy||ok so after driving it for a day.. i think i want to regear.. i mean i can get to the speeds i need to be in.. but with the a/c on and going up little inclines i had no power.. definately not used to it.. i guess i will have to get used to it until i can afford to regear the thing..|

|distortedtj||i haven't calculated my mpgs. i have 3.73 and 33's too. I dont think i really want to know. If i had to guess 14 town and probally 17 hwy.. my tires are HEAVY and i have alot of aftermarket steel bolted on to my heep.|
|05-23-2008 11:01 AM|
|4point||I get 17 on the hwy and 15 in the (same as town) hills. With that same combo gears/tires.|

i got the HD OME,s the ride is great.. no complaints yet.. we will see after a week w/the new tires.. i think i didnt adjust my swaybars right because i feel some body roll on turns.. this could be from the added height but i dunno..
whats the usal mpg decrease w/the upgrade to 33s.. i have 3.73s and was getting 18mpg w/the 30s... what do you figure i will get w/the 33s?

sorry, forgot to mention, Looks great!

|distortedtj||what coils did you get? OME's, Trailgunners, or custom "zj/lj" coils?|

alright after bein out of town for a week i came back to wheel spacers.. thanks to jherrin215 i put them on even after being as tired as i was from driving for 1300 miles straight cause i could not wait to see what the big tires would look and feel like... so here are some pics to show off the jeep... w/the big tires now...

|erickpl||hulkboy, looks good!|
|05-12-2008 06:30 PM|

|05-12-2008 03:08 PM|

|Austin||looks good man.... just need the tires to finish it off|
|05-12-2008 06:35 AM|
dude... im just messing with ya
|05-11-2008 09:06 PM|
they are longer than stock which is a good thing. and if your not flexing then it really won't matter if you have a flex joint
|05-11-2008 05:17 PM|
since we're speaking about control arms.. any one know a control arm insert thats about 1.5" in diameter?
|05-11-2008 04:32 PM|
yes, i wouldn't buy them either...
they obviously are junk...
thanks mrbigjeep... ill figure another way to pay rent this month.... maybe i can dress up the wife and put her on the streetcorner at dusk... that may work... heck, maybe i can sell a kidney... it's not like i really need 2 anyway...
|05-11-2008 04:17 PM|
|hulkboy||yea i was thinking if they were not needed then no need.. i have books to pay for this these upcoming summer semesters that i have yet to save up for.... freakin edgeAmUcaton....|

i wouldn't buy aftermarket control arms unless they have a flex joint. it would be far easier to replace a broken control arm (you can find spare stockers for free or almost free) than it would be to replace a control arm bracket.
a flex joint will let the arm twist some which means it won't put as much stress on the CA mount. snapping a stock arm would be better than an aftermarket control arm without a flex joint messing up the control arm bracket. i would keep the stock arms before buying an aftermarket arm without flex joints.

lookin great, and when you get those 33's on there it will be the coolest thing at the mall
im going with this same lift. im actually buying it tommarow (monday) and i have 33's alrdy in use for it. keep us posted if theres any vibes. im a bit worried about if ill get lucky or not in that department.
did you get an alignment?
did you have to balance the tires?
my 33's were balanced for my 2inch BB but i wonder if they will need re-balancing when i get the ultiment kit.
keep us posted.

check out 4x4xplor.com he has a good writeup on it
|05-11-2008 02:26 PM|
i had problems with the traction bars and still am trying to get front t bar centered.. rear is good and now my only problems... im hoping i dont get vibes but i went out and got some washers to space out the t case if needed..
if and when i add the t case spacers, its just the six bolts holding the skid that need to be spaced right??

|activelydying||Alot of dealing going on in this thread. The jeep and lift look good. What did you have problems with?|
|05-11-2008 01:29 PM|
|05-11-2008 01:25 PM|

|05-11-2008 01:10 PM|
lookey here if you think you may need these
|05-11-2008 01:06 PM|
|MoA||yep.. jherrin is right.. your going to rub the crab outta your tires if you dont space your rims out|
|05-11-2008 01:05 PM|
|05-11-2008 12:48 PM|
|jherrin215||I have a set of spacers that you need!! I will take 100 for them plus shipping!! They are 1 1/4 spacers that I used with my stock canyons and 35's|
