Did you get a SYE yet? IMO that'd be the next thing after brake lines. Then you can mount up the long arms the rest of the way. After that then go for gears.

i bought yukon 4.88 gears master install kits and rear 44 carrier. i also bought the brakelines last night. i was just under my jeep and actually my rear drive shaft is not in an angle all that much.! i do have a problem with the front though because my lower control arms seem a lil too long! and dopod you are right and thats exactly what i was going to do. when i get the sye i will take the tc drop spacers out and mount the xmember flush to the frame! then i will drill the holes through the frame

I think once you get the t-case drop out of there the long arms will be pulled back a little so they might not be too long after that.
