Good luck with it! Make sure you retorque everythign after 500 miles!

Also those RC springs are goign to be very stiff when you first get them. They should soften up after use, or put a couple sand bags in the back .

They can't be any worse than my stock ones right now. I think they almost sagged completely to the bump stops

I put the same lift on my YJ and I fit 33's no problem, and it looks great , the only thing is a little rubbing on the front leafs a rim wit some more backspacing or a wheel spacer will help. Good luck

Here's what my RC lift looks like but I'm also running a 1.5" Shackle Lift and 2" Body Lift. I am also running 33's I've been told to put 35" on but I have little to no rub with the way I have it now

I'm not so sure if you posted in the right thread or not but: You can run 3.07s with 32 or 33s but its no fun I guess it depends on how much you wheel your Jeep and if its a daily driver or not.

I just got done putting 33's on mine with 307's and a I6 and it's driveable but I definatly need to go to at least 410's. There is no power with it with the 307's

cool thanks. Im trying to get the money and the parts together to make the switch to 4.10's. Why in the hell, in DC infinite f*cking wisdom, did they make a gearset that required a different carrier than every other gearset in the lineup? It just doesnt make sense. So, now instead of just changing gears out, I have to change carriers too. I guess its a good time to go to limited slip.... Good thing I will be doing it myself, or else I couldnt afford to feed my family

Yeah I missed that. Ignore me.

Did you ever think of getting a Ford 8.8 or a D44 even? You could find the 8.8 in a junkyard with 4.10 for a reasonable price (well, hopefully).
