Your jeep looks great, very clean. I think a roof rack with some kc lights on it would look cool to. (all black) and if you get a bumper i think a arb one would look great.

BS!


Edit: If your profile it says you have a tera high steer kit, and a sye. I quess you must have had some vibes or you wouldt have put it on. still 9 inch lift and 36 in tires with stock axles and brakes is not smart.

All stock driveline and 9.5" of lift. I hope you don't wheel that thing at all. I'd be pretty pissed off if I was stuck behind you when your driveshaft slips out on an obstical.

nice looking jeep man! i have the same lift on mine i love it. I had the viberations too and was going to put a SYE in bud i got a 1 inch t-case for a TJ and out that in and they went away. It is true the people with the bigger lifts have no vibe, my buddy has a 5.5 with no viberations

ya i here different things about needing/not needing SYEs from all different kinds of people, either way, i get vibes and i love the jeep too much to just band aid it with a TC drop. My SYE and DS actually just came in a couple days ago. Goes in next week.





I'll post pics when i install it.

haha u mean like ur jeep. Ya I've actually seen ur jeep around the site a lot and like it, I've decided to try and go all red and black, with as many of the aftermarket parts under the car grey. Everything that is black, must be as black as possible. I actually just pulled off the trim again today to paint it with legit Rustoleum plastic paint rather than shoe dye haha.

I've been looking at this bumper, http://www.rocklizardfabrications.com/100_0544.jpg, but have a lot of other little investments to make before that. Hella 500s on top of the bumper. I might wait until i mess up the stock bumper.

what do you mean....with the lights????

everything on my jeep is chrome or stainless. Im not a big fan of the black wheels and stuff on a black jeep. Now on a light colored jeep, they look great. oh and i dont have a rack, i just have a light bar



Did you deside if you are going to put in the sye or have it done?
oh and what is the length on your woods shaft? and what rear end do you have?
I want to see if i measured mine right
