No. You can go Spring Over Axle (SOA) but it is a lot of time, work, fabrication, and cash to do so.

I'd like to know if there is a way to get the Check Engine Light to reset for good. Mine keeps saying I need a Code 33 (A/C Relay) and that's not true. I know it's an issue with YJ's, but I can't figure out how to get rid of this. It's been reset with the reader at the mechanics. I've disconnected the battery as well. It just keeps coming on. What's weird is that you can drive it about 100 yards, cut it off and then the light goes away. If it's under 60 degree's outside (which doesn't happen much in Texas) then it won't come on at all. Go figure. If anyone has a solution, it would be great to write it up.

I have unexpectedly gotten a 91 Wrangler from my father in law and want to make it bad a$$. Do you need to replace the stock control arms for rough country 4in. lift and 33-35in. tires? I will also be getting the SYE CV drive shaft kit. Please I need someone knowledeable, I have been unable to get a definitive answer thus far.

Thanks!

This is what I am being told by my father who has limited experience with lifts. I am wondering if it is the truth.

"you will destroy this truck with that kind of lift and no experience. new control arms would
be must. even if alignment could be achieved the suspension would only work going
up maybe. going down it would bind, twist, then break. the larger the tire the lower you effectively
change the gear ratio for off road this means wearing a clutch out for an automatic it
means death"

theres no controll arms on yjs just leafs so you cant change them and with a lift it depends on how much your lifting and what you need for it. i bought a 2" and i just have to bolt it on nothing else to do (maybe a drop piman arm and extend the brake lines but i will know when i bolt it on. 4" is more work and money and soa is alot of time money and requires some fab skills. you dont have to change the gear ratio but you will have to to run 35s because you can run stock gerars with 33s but its terrible 31s would be best and dont look bad on a 4" lift on a yj

How hard is it to change the gear ratio? how much money does it cost? Does anyone know if that has a write up on it?
Thanks for the info.!

Has anyone hardwired their FACTORY gauge cluster? I'm trying to pinpoint the reason my temp sensor and gas gauge don't work properly. I think getting ri of that 1980's circuit board behind the cluster would simplify the process. Any advice for or against this idea will be appreciated.

I'm working on the same thing right now but all gauges work. Its the wonked out after market toggles that have the wiring messed up to the fuse box (yes, I'm still going to use that because fuses are easier to replace). The temp sensor and gas gauge issues usually come from them not being grounded properly or frayed ends with no covers on one or both ends. Check to see if they were crimp covered or bare wire, strip and put new crimps on then follow back to the box then out to the dash cluster to start. Haven't dug into mine enough yet to give a better answer.
