Yes, it *should* eliminate your vibrations, but then you've pretty much negated the lift you just installed and you now have a very low belly to get hung up on. If you're not going to wheel it probably won't be a problem, but if you are you'll find yourself getting hung up on it often.

What is a CV shaft and why do I want one? - JeepForum.com

Or you can negate your lift and drop the t-case for a few bucks.

I'm not sure on the sye cv drive shaft. It's prolly on the forum somewhere. But I'm pretty sure it would be between 500-1000 for parts not including labor if needed.

And I dont know if your set on the lift already but rough country tends to be rather rough so if your looking for daily driver you might wanna save up for something like the ome ultimate kit from dpg offroad (that's what I have. I just put it on about a month ago and the ride is awsome!) but thats just my .02

blake32 We are about to run Nitto Mud Grapplers 33x13.50/15 on 15x10 Sidebiters! Really like the wheels!

Don't like RC lifts. They live up to their name in the way they ride.

Opinions on my upgrades

So I believe I have decided to go with a Rough Country 3.25" lift kit and bump my 225's to 33X10.5 with BFG All Terrain KO tires and M/T Sidebiter Black Wheels. Any opinions on this? Am I going to run into any problems with this kit or these tires? I've never done this before so any info would be greatly appreciated!
