Front is in, picture guy isn't here! So imagine 42s on a 3.5" lift! The 38s look like bike tires!

Very nice...subscribed. My fiancee has an '11 JK, but her big modification plans right now are just adding some used OEM side steps.

I'm at the same place with
my 2005 LJ build
(and it's 6 1/2 yrs. old)...pretty weird to go cutting on a low-mileage Jeep, at least for me.

Crazy it worked! Extra parts needed for this install are:
1. Adjustable front and rear track bars.
2. 2" rear spacers. rear full float 60 is 65" WMS, Front is 69.75
3. My wheels are 16" with 5.5 BS. 17" would save some grinding on the calipers.
4. Sector shaft brace. Mine had some play in it after only 22k miles.
The high steer arms did work with a touch of Hillbilly trickery!

Just orderd Spacers, new rear (Synergy) track bar and Rock Solid front track bar with steering brace. Allpro offroad 1.5" wheel spacers, and JE REEL driveshafts.
I spoke with Jim Reel, he was great to deal with! I tried to keep my money local but, after all the questions and needing compressed + extended lenghts the choice got easier. I told them what lift and type it was, how much lift, gave them running lengths and a credit card! I ended up with a rear 1350 double cardan shaft with the canyon crawler option. This takes the wall thickness from .083 t0 .120. Due to a smaller tire I wanted a bit more insurance under me. The front is also a 1350 double cardan setup.
The downside is they were swamped and can't ship them untill Friday or Monday! this puts a delivery date of the 20th, and me bolting shafts in it while it sits on the trailer for Snofari!

I think that was Christmas of 2002. You're getting old. (Luckily I'm not!)

Looks good. How's it ride?

Like a rocket. Down an icy driveway. With no brakes.

It rides great on the trailer, unless your refering to pushing it out of the garage! Leahs right it was a rocket with two hillbillys riding it down the driveway!!
Other than that, the brakes are done, steering done, switched to a Rock solid front track bar with sector brace. It hits my hi steer arms at full lock so I'm just going to put some stops in. Its getting a cutting brake anyway so hopefully I won't miss a little turning radius. Switched to a Synergy rear trackbar.
The down side, I bought JE REEL drive shafts, and they aren't shipping out untill Monday! The up side. .120 wall shafts instead of .083
For this weekend I guess I'll rework my Shrock works rockers so they work with the long arm, I wasn't going to because of the whole cutting up perfectly good parts thing, but then I rememberd that I just cut a ton of stuff off a fairly new jeep!
