Ultimate kit installed.. (PICS!!!!)
 
4 Attachment(s)
ok well i finally got this all installed:D... it was definately a major pain but im glad i did it by myself.. it was a learning experience for sure.. it looks a lot higher than i expected.. havent really been able to drive it fast to see if there are any vibrations but i figure i will have some.. that rear end looks HIGH!!! i hope i wont have to get an SYE/CV combo as i have no moola...

first pics are when i first got her.. second set w/no top is after the jks BL/mml combo.. and the last three are after the lift minus the tires... i dont know if the 33s i have for it will fit w/o the spacers.. so i opted not to install them yet.. spacers are backordered:doh:

I have a set of spacers that you need!! I will take 100 for them plus shipping!! They are 1 1/4 spacers that I used with my stock canyons and 35's

Alot of dealing going on in this thread. :D The jeep and lift look good. What did you have problems with?

hulkboy 05-11-2008 02:26 PM

i had problems with the traction bars and still am trying to get front t bar centered.. rear is good and now my only problems... im hoping i dont get vibes but i went out and got some washers to space out the t case if needed..


if and when i add the t case spacers, its just the six bolts holding the skid that need to be spaced right??

MoA 05-11-2008 02:36 PM

yep..

check out 4x4xplor.com he has a good writeup on it

hulkboy 05-11-2008 02:45 PM

lookin great, and when you get those 33's on there it will be the coolest thing at the mall ;)

im going with this same lift. im actually buying it tommarow (monday) and i have 33's alrdy in use for it. keep us posted if theres any vibes. im a bit worried about if ill get lucky or not in that department.
did you get an alignment?
did you have to balance the tires?

my 33's were balanced for my 2inch BB but i wonder if they will need re-balancing when i get the ultiment kit.

keep us posted.
looks great

personally i would not buy those. they just have rubber bushings on each end. the stock arms are designed to flex some so they don't put stress on the control arm mounts. without a flex joint you are gonna be putting a ton of stress on the control arm mounts because the arm isn't gonna twist any.

i wouldn't buy aftermarket control arms unless they have a flex joint. it would be far easier to replace a broken control arm (you can find spare stockers for free or almost free) than it would be to replace a control arm bracket.

a flex joint will let the arm twist some which means it won't put as much stress on the CA mount. snapping a stock arm would be better than an aftermarket control arm without a flex joint messing up the control arm bracket. i would keep the stock arms before buying an aftermarket arm without flex joints. JMO :)

hulkboy 05-11-2008 04:17 PM

yea i was thinking if they were not needed then no need.. i have books to pay for this these upcoming summer semesters that i have yet to save up for.... freakin edgeAmUcaton....

Vector6 05-11-2008 04:32 PM

yes, i wouldn't buy them either... :eek:

they obviously are junk... :D

thanks mrbigjeep... :confused: ill figure another way to pay rent this month.... maybe i can dress up the wife and put her on the streetcorner at dusk...:flipoff: that may work... heck, maybe i can sell a kidney... it's not like i really need 2 anyway...:doh:

Triple88a 05-11-2008 05:17 PM

since we're speaking about control arms.. any one know a control arm insert thats about 1.5" in diameter?

crap man i didn't mean to mess you up :redface:

they are longer than stock which is a good thing. and if your not flexing then it really won't matter if you have a flex joint :D

OK UPDATE!!

alright after bein out of town for a week i came back to wheel spacers.. thanks to jherrin215:punk: i put them on even after being as tired as i was from driving for 1300 miles straight cause i could not wait to see what the big tires would look and feel like... so here are some pics to show off the jeep... w/the big tires now...

distortedtj 05-23-2008 10:24 AM

what coils did you get? OME's, Trailgunners, or custom "zj/lj" coils?

to add to this...light, medium, HD? how's the ride?

sorry, forgot to mention, Looks great!

hulkboy 05-23-2008 10:58 AM

i got the HD OME,s the ride is great.. no complaints yet.. we will see after a week w/the new tires.. i think i didnt adjust my swaybars right because i feel some body roll on turns.. this could be from the added height but i dunno..

whats the usal mpg decrease w/the upgrade to 33s.. i have 3.73s and was getting 18mpg w/the 30s... what do you figure i will get w/the 33s?
