Was just looking at UCF's t-case skid, might be ordering the high clearance one soon! These guys also have a "fix" for the rough country long arm kit that raises the rear upper control arm mount, something I was thinking about myself.

No, not yet, I may put the skid plate on, but I think I'll wait on the axles until I can afford all the little extras, like driveshafts, brakes, lockouts, and lockers.

Installed a set of 35's today, fits the lift much better.

You'd better keep your rig together long enough that you don't need to be riding with me!

not bringing the rig, prolly durango and cargo trailer so we can pick up some more of our stuff while down there. And will have the girls and they don't fit in the big jeep anymore.

So...time to start things moving forward again. Wheeled at twisted tails dog party a few weeks ago on 35's and managed not to break anythingClick image for larger version

As soon as I can get my d44's ready to go in, I'm going to start that process. Lately though I've been doing a lot of web wheeling and found some interesting opinions. I'm almost convinced to buy some currie flex arms and skip the long arms. General consensus seems to be that for less than 3.5" of lift the long arm kits actually hang up more than they help. A good flex joint short arm system seems to be the way to go for lower rigs like mine, unless you go full custom, which I don't have the time to do. Anyone have opinions on short arms vs. long at 2.5-3" lift?

Well how roomy will it be for the 37s to flex?

Love this insight…you should definitely keep this idea updated here.

It's hard to justify dropping 1k on currie short arms, but for the height I'm looking at keeping my jeep, it may be the best option. Bolt on long arm kits in my budget seem to sacrifice a lot geometrically speaking.
