2000 Jeep Cherokee Freedom
Lift - RE6030 + 2" coil spacers & 1.5" lift shackles = 5"
Shocks - DT3
Rims - Cragar 342s 16x7 w/4" backspacing
Tires - 265/75/16 Wildcat EXT

I added a hack-n-tap and new rear CV shaft. Extended the front and rear bump stops. I still get a little rubbing front and rear at full stuff, but not much. I will most likely trim soon.

2K Freedom, lift, 35s, and some other stuff....
Being built- D30HP and 8.8 with ARB's.....
Dang this Jeep is addicting!

Lift Info is in the sig.

Me and my friends did acid in the woods, 'cuz there was much less chance of running into an authority fugure. But we ran into a bear. And that is way more of a buzz kill. I looked around and saw my friend swearing to prevent forest fires. Later, he came up to me and said, "Mitchell. Smokey is way more intense in person.- Mitch Hedberg

the old stuff was in the back with all the tools and a spare tire, i haven't installed the sye or shaft. but i put in the shims and tc drop, just to drive it and it drive nice small vibes and the tail pipe hits the leaf.

the 4.5 kit rides way better then the old 3" kit from rusty's on my old jeep, it's not as stiff.

Lift: Rusty's 4.5" with full leaf packs
Shocks: Rusty's reccommended for 4.5" of lift
Driveshaft: AA SYE and some woods cv driveshaft
Wheels: 15x8 Black Rockcrawler w/ 3.75" backspacing
Tires: 33x12.5r15 super swamper tsl radials
Axles/Gearing: front HP30 w/ 4.10's + ford 8.8 w/ aussie locker and 4.10's
Extras: No rear bumper. No swaybars. Painted lower trim/front bumper black. Relocated the horn and vacuum canister inside the engine compartment.
Problems: Slight vibes due to wrong ds angle (welded it with the pinion facing to far up ) so i will have to use shims, but backwards... Old ebrake lines hit the ds. I will have to find a way to remove it. Rusty's rule!

I trimmed both the front and the back. Stock bumpstops. Front does not rub at all. The back fender slighlty rubs at full stuff (see picture)
