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..
05-23-2008 12:07 PM
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 12:01 PM
4point I get 17 on the hwy and 15 in the (same as town) hills. With that same combo gears/tires.

hulkboy 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?

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.

slippy 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.
looks great

hulkboy ^^^^thanks MoA^^^^
05-11-2008 03:36 PM
MoA yep..

check out 4x4xplor.com he has a good writeup on it
05-11-2008 03:26 PM
hulkboy 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??
05-11-2008 03:16 PM
activelydying Alot of dealing going on in this thread. The jeep and lift look good. What did you have problems with?
