I've got 2 inch bl.
The 3 1.25 doesn't come with control arms?

Trail-Hated4x4 So if I have a body lift I don't have to drop TC?
Because that is something I'd like to avoid as well.

All depends on what kind of riding you do I guess.
It is and I've never really been interested in the rock stuff, not that I wouldn't do it just not what I enjoy.

Haha - I bet you can with a good line. I don't do crazy things. I'd still go to the mall if I could fit in the parking deck.

jandaso yeah man lets get that thing on ... take it for a ride and see if it vibrates. I dont think it will
05-01-2013 01:42 PM
cleveland99 Hope the bl mml lift help so I dont drop tc
05-01-2013 12:58 PM
jandaso I will wait till you get yours in this sat ... i want to see how it looks....i actually not a big fan of the TC drop. because if I really have to do that might as well buy a belly up since my differential will not have any difference in clearance since i will be retaining the 33"

and if i dont want to do a TC drop but still want the 4" then i might have to spend another 500 for a SYE and a custom Toms Driveshaft

cleveland99 Jandaso I got the 4.25 I think it a better kit

This kit is easy to install with no cutting or drilling required. With the right tools and a few friends, you can have this kit on in a few hours.

Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions, I'll be happy to help.

MMMM I like that KIT.... cheapppp lol hahaha maybe we can both get it and get an even better price

MosesTJ It's no problem. I wasn't being an ass but that is an important step that most people like to avoid.

Moses,

I realized that after I posted it, and it was too late to edit. I looked back through the install instructions and saw the drilling step. Thanks for correcting me!

If you have any questions, I'll be happy to help.

I bought a 4"SL, 1.25" BL,1" MML for around $750. From Allen at AOR. It's a zone. I'm running 33's as well.
He was great to work with I can get you in contact with him.

Depending on how much you want to spend, and what height of lift you are going to run will determine the brand to look into. We carry Lift Kits in all of the brands you mentioned, so I'll be able to answer any questions about them you may have.

Let me know the height you're looking for and I can give you a hand!

Wondering what lifts are good for offroading, but yet affordable. Skyjacker, rough country, rubicon express, etc.
