You may need rear shock relocation brackets after you rotate your pinion up. The shock may contact the coil pad on the axle.

you could throw a new front and rear bumper with winch and winch plate on that list...then ship them to me, please

Thank you! I might pick these up "just in case". I read the instaltion istuctions and it had said something about this. I'll see if I can't get them shipped quick.

Owen_TJ 01-29-2012 01:22 AM

A damn good list! I need the sliders, tummy tuck and maybe the gears. Im going 5.13 gears. I have Dana 44 front and back...so, the next step would be 35" tires :punk:

Owen_TJ 01-29-2012 01:36 AM

Nice!! Its always somethin haha...

I'm only going to run 33's (currently on 32's) which is why i'm gonna do the 4.88's...should be a nice daily driver/weekend offroader

I was planning on ordering my fan, front bumper, and winch at the beginning of last week but the guy doing my tattoo decided to flake out on me (after our trade work was done on my side) so i had to go to a shop and was quoted 1,000 to finish...so that ate up the jeep budget for a little bit :(

Definitely post pics when you've got the parts on...

I had a currie 4" installed at a local shop, along with sye and cv shaft (2000 TJ) and I did need rear shock relocation brackets.

geiman 02-02-2012 02:38 PM

Don't bother with the relocation brackets; if you're shocks hit, I'd just trim the spring perch a bit (or outboard, but I'm guessing that's more than you want to do right now).

Also, the rear trac bar relocation bracket from Currie is made for their trac bar with a Johnny Joint on one end, thus the bracket will be a bit too wide for the bushing in the stock trac bar. You could probably get away with using washers to take up the space, but I just wanted to give you a heads up for when you go to install it.

And x2 on getting the 5th tire.

Sure did! its Awesome!:punk:

Waterlogged11 02-16-2012 10:39 AM

Looks real nice. How does it ride? I'm torn between the currie/savvy 4" short arm lift and the rock krawler 3.5 x factor plus short arm kit.

Imped 02-16-2012 10:49 AM

JJ's promote a better ride than rod ends and poly bushings. I've used RK arms and Currie arms (and built my own using Currie JJ's) and I'll take Currie all day long. The nicest riding rigs out there use Currie JJ's at all ends.

If you go Savvy...get the Alum. arms... Its so easy to adjust them. This kit is worth every penny.:thumb:

It rides better than stock. I went for the Rancho 9000XL. So i can make it ride however i want.

Currie Anti-rock takes a little time to get use to... Not bad, just differnt.

rubiblue thanks for the write up, you helped me make up my mind on the Currie/Savvy lift. I just called Gerald to place my order and he is out of town till the 24th, damn it! Going to try to be patient...

MikeMTJ 02-17-2012 04:05 PM

I am jealous.

TnDz TJ 02-17-2012 05:11 PM

Came out awesome! Congrats! I can't wait to get mine on. Just a few more parts and I will get busy on installing my 4" lift and 33's and 4.56's

AzTJ 02-17-2012 05:51 PM

Some one mentioned shock extenders for the rear shocks... If they are a mono-tube style shock, you can run them inverted... or just trim the coil perch. Don't use extenders as they will probably rip the shock mount off.

I want to "outboard" mine sometime. In the meantime I'm going to beef up the shock brackets a tad with a few gussets.

Very much worth the wait.

Oh, had my jeep doing 80 on the interstate ... Handles great!

Hay JeepCreeper, what did the shop charge you to install your lift and SYE? I might have to do the same.
