One word of advice though, you're gonna want to loose that t-case drop after you wheel it a few times. You're gonna get hung up on your skid ALOT with it hanging that low. I'd start looking into an SYE. I went with the Advanced Adapters set up and cut down an XJ front driveshaft for mine. Much better and more clearance. the other nice thing about the SYE is when you blow a shaft u-joint you can drive in front wheel only and not be blowing all your fluid out the back of your t-case

vfrpilot--thanks for posting photo of your YJ with 4" RC lift and 31's. I'm taking notes, figuring out what I'll be doing eventually.
The only time around here we get that dusty stuff on our hoods is if the volcano is acting up and spewing a lotta ash.

gotta remember that vfrpilots tires are prolly not all that much smaller than mine. a good aggressive mud tire that is a 31, won't be a whole lot smaller than a 33 inch all terrain. on the other hand, a 31 inch all terrain will be noticeably smaller than a 31 inch mud terrain. hope that makes sense.

thanks RC, its also got a 97 TJ 2.5L in it too.


as far as brake lines go, i didn't use the relocation brackets. instead, in the front i took the lines off the top of frame and ran them on the outside of the frame rail. that gave me plenty of slack. in the rear, i also didnt use the supplied bracket. the brake line was so rusted on to the stock location i would have broke it trying to get it loose, so i took a set of pliers and bent the stock bracket straight down. it gave me enough slack so i could fully flex the rear without worrying about tearing the line.

update time!!

i've had the springs on for a little over a week now and i think they've finished breaking in. the driver side lean is gone, and its riding better than stock. overall, the jeep is much more enjoyable to drive. hopefully i'll be able to get the dang thing off the pavement and really see how they work. so far Rough Country gets two thumbs up
