Can't decide which method to achieve clearance for 33's
So I've done a ton of research on this subject but it's time I ask for some help. I am planning on getting a lift kit to fit 33's. However I really want to avoid the added expensive of a sye and cv driveshaft. So my choices are either to go with the 4 inch rubicon express lift and pray it doesn't mess with my driveline angles or get a rubicon express 2.5 with a one inch body lift. From my research It seems the 2.5 with the 1 inch bl might be the right choice for me. However I have a few questions for people with this setup. Do the 2.5 inch leafs really flex better than a 4 inch. Also with this setup is a sye usually not required? I don't Mind a tc drop but really trying to avoid a sye. I understand the price of the re 2.5 + the 1 bl will be the same price as the 4 inch re kit, so I need some input. Thanks
I have a 4" lift with 1.25 Boom shackles and 1" BL, with the TC drop, I have not had any vibes since install 4 yrs ago. No SYE needed.
--[.]IIIII[.] Obsession is a word the lazy use to describe the dedicated HER's: 92 YJ 4" RC 1.5 RC Booms, 1" BL on 33's MINE's: 97 ZJ 5.2 Upcountry Limited Project 2" RE BB on 265/75 Mud Dogs, Locked front LSD rear, 242 swapped T-Case, RC Quick Disco's www.virtualjeepclub.com/
3.5" BDS w/ 1/2" booms, 1" bl, 1" MML, NO TC drop on 33's. NM, I have an SYE too. What makes you not want one? Benefits outweigh the cost&effort to install one. Just break that stock driveline once... Ask me how I know. This shot is with Revolvers up front which are about 1/2"-3/4" lower than the booms that are back on now.[/URL]

The great uniting factor is that we are all jeepers at heart and are willing to help each other out even if its just a little. That's what the jeep wave is all about: community. The wave is the tip of the iceberg.
Luck Favours The Prepared
I'm running 33's with OME 2.5" .5 booms in front/1" booms in rear with MCE front flat fenders & TJ flares in the rear. The TJ flares allow you to go to bigger tires with less lift because You cut the wheel wells bigger.
You might get away with no Tcase drop & no vibes. But I still recomend a SYE.
