EMTJEEP Ditch the TC drop for a day and see if you get any vibes. All it probably is doing is lowering your clearance height and not doing anything real positive for you and your jeep.

Every Jeep is different, but I only did a 2.5 lift on my TJ and after the vibes were TERRIBLE.. I did a tcase drop and it rode great. (just got rid of the tcase drop today and went with an SYE and CV drive shaft).

They have an sye. But not a Double Cardin shaft. (which is really what people are referring to when they say a cv shaft)

Edit: EMT beat me to it.

But looks good! I like those rims, never heard of them. May have to get myself a set of those. How much do they cost, if you don't mind me asking.
