On a 2 door, your stock shafts will probably be alright for awhile with a 3" lift, but their time will come. So I'd expect to be able to get away with it for awhile so long as you're periodically looking under the jeep and paying attention for any signs of failure. As I understand it, once they start to go, there's no saving them and you've got to replace them fairly quickly.
Body lifts are frowned upon for JKs. You can fit 33s stock and 35s under a 2.5" lift. Go to flat flares and you can run 37s on 2.5" of lift. So there's just not much reason for body lifts and they can cause some problems.
That said, those that have 1" BLs do seem to like them okay.
You could put a 10" body lift on your Jeep and it will have no effect on the drive shafts.
I never lift more than I need to clear the tires of choice. Many people run 37"s with a 3" spring lift or 2" lift with fender mod.
Every other section has this stickied so I thought I would start one. Forgive me if its in there already but I could not find it.
Anyway here's what I did.
After removing the different cover for a routine fluid change I decided to paint the cover, it needed a little touching up so I thought I...
I have an AFE Power axle back scorpion exhaust and as I’ve been trying to keep my quarantined self busy I heard a pressurized gurgling noise. I got under the jeep and at both connection points there is a small amount of black liquid bubbling out of the connection points. I’ve never heard this...
Looking for skid plates for the bottom of my 2010 JKU. What is the best bang for the buck ? They all seem to be made from 3/16 steel. So what separates the top from the bottom of the ladder. Fit ? Finish ? Seems to be a vary wide range of prices.
I try to find scale models of any vehicles I have that I like. Meng makes a great 10th Anniversary 2 Door JK model. It's high quality and a perfect match for mine... except the color. I want to repaint it in Billet Silver but haven't found a good way to do it.
I'm fairly new to models but...
On our 2010 JKUR that we bought new and love we have 137000 miles on her now. We’re gonna keep this forever so i wanna get ahead of the aging motor. I think a Hemi swap is too expensive once this engine goes. Same is probably true for an LS swap. I’m thinking a rebuilt 3.8 with a supercharger...
