Yep I am on 33's and plan to be probably thru next year after I am all set up I'll move up to 35's. But have to do it the right way and make sure I am not breaking anything because it is my DD and I have to be able to get to work.

|Neal5280||So I have a buddy who's wrenched for 4 wheel parts for a while now, and he did a lift on a tj and removed the 2" budget boost and handed em' to me. So I think that for now I am going to do the bb and new shocks, plus mine are shot, and hold off on the TT for now until I have the $$ to do the SYE and Driveshaft. Looks like I'm getting close to having a very similiar set up to you GSPup. I figure that next spring when I do my rear axle I'll do the TT, SYE & DS, rear axle. Should make for a very fun summer next year!|

Cool thanks, that's the route I was thinking but don't know anyone who does it any recommendations in SE Denver/Aurora?

LOL I mentioned in passing to my wife about doing the upgrade sooner than later and the laser stare came out quick, LOL. I think that I will just hold off until next spring and keep the harmony where it is But I'll be keeping an eye out around town just in case something were to happen and I would HAVE to replace

Very nice! I should have the skid and lopro mount on thursday. I was hoping to install this weekend but am on call and won't have any other way into the office. So I am going to hold off and paint them this weekend and hopefully install the week of the 24th.
What did you use to finish yours? Not sure what the most durable will be...

|Justin04Lj||Cool. Ive debated on spacers or not. The backspace of my rims seems to clear everything well though.|

|Justin04Lj||Are you using wheel spacers?|
|08-09-2013 10:31 AM|
|GSPup||So...17" at the lowest point on my belly skid to give you a height reference. 9" between the tire and the front fender and 8.5" between the rear tire and the tub. No rubbing front or back with 1" bump-stops in the back and stock bumps in the front. At this point I think I'm getting as close as possible to max travel out of my stock suspension.|

|Neal5280||Just got the shipping notification so I should have everything mid next week. I'll probably shoot to install a week from Saturday. I think I'll start the PB Blasting when I get home this morning and soak the frame bolts everyday to make my life easier.|

Love it! I wish I would have held out for an LJ but doesn't change how much I love my TJ

Not sure if this will help you in any way but here's a quick pic of my 99 on 35s
The only things missing in the pic are:
Iron rock steering system
Chromoly front shafts
Ford 8.8 rear axle
4" front springs
Front extended brake lines
Adjustable upper control arms front and rear
Fixed lower control arms front and rear
Slip yoke eliminator
Adams cv shaft
Adjustable rear track bar
New trans mount
I'll get some better pics up after next week when the control arms and slip yoke are put in but yeah, you get the idea...

|Sinister6||Looks good Justin!|
|08-08-2013 11:03 PM|
|Neal5280||Cool I should update my avatar I am not running any flares front or rear but without a lift it just seems like I'll need to do some trimming for 35s....|
|08-08-2013 10:49 PM|
Here's a closer one.
|08-08-2013 10:48 PM|
This is my Lj with 35s and the 3.5 rock krawler x factor. I took my bushwhacker fender flares off cuz they rubbed alot. The rear still rubs at full flex but I dont have bump stops yet :-)
|08-08-2013 10:11 PM|
|Neal5280||Also did you have to do any trimming to the rear wheel openings for the 35s? In just looking it seems like it will be a pretty tight fit.|
|08-08-2013 10:10 PM|
I am running metal cloaks up front now so that's taken care of, I was going to do the lift last depending how I like the 35s without a lift. I wan't to make sure that I am not limiting myself without the lift.
If I do end up doing the 8.8 then I'll probably do the locker at the same time. But I want to make sure that I have a selectable locker because of the horror stories of them in snow and on slick roads... It's my daily driver and I have to be able to drive it around town year round.
I am hoping that I'll have the new axle and steering upgraded by next spring so I can have a great summer next year
|08-08-2013 11:22 AM|
It's a great way to get the axles higher up and not drop a fortune to get 35's. Keeps very good road manners without all the other hoopla involved with taller lifts. I'm a big proponent of lower center of gravity if it works for you. Don't worry too much about lockers just yet, I only have limited slip and am still deciding if they are what I want.
I am hoping to make jeeptober. I'll try to find a few pics worth posting for you this afternoon.
Sorry about the essay, just my 2 cents.
