Why black out your plates? My plate number is 125tjd and it's a Texas plate.. never understood why people do it, just over paranoid....feel free to share my plate w the world
Looks better but the tires look tiny now

It's because they are afraid someone is going to duplicate their plates and go rob a bank. :rofl:

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.

You may not be aware but the second picture your license plate is in clear view. :whistling:

Not bad. Are they matte or shiny finish?

They're a matte black finish....plasti dip was cool but cleaning was a pain

PLEASE correct me if I am wrong, but why would you need a Tcase drop on a Rubicon?

I could be way out of line here but dont they already have the SYE and CV drive shaft?

They have a fixed yoke but they do not have a CV 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 still don't fully understand why he needs the TC drop. I guess 3.5" is too much of an angle??

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).

RubiGou 05-21-2013 02:03 AM

the tcase drop came with the lift dont think i needed it though

EMTJEEP 05-21-2013 01:25 PM

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.
