This is pretty much the result I want on my 93. Did you use the shim for the pinion angle? It looks like maybe you dropped the transfer case.

Looks good - mine is stock, and I will be adding a lift soon.

What size tires are on there now?

Thanks for adjusting the pictures!!! I also was thinking about the zone lift over the RC lift. The bds is just out of the budget.

Thanks I just figured it out and was going to try it again when I see you fixed it. yes I shimmed the differential with the shims it came with and I dropped the transfer case. Home made with bolts and oversized nuts as spacers. I did not want to dump a bunch of money into a toy and was going to go with RC but the bad reviews scared me off. I love the zone lift and would do it all over again. I have 235's on and when they wear out I'll probably go with 31's.

The 235s are about 29". The 31s will look great. I'm thinking about squeezing in 32s after I left mine.

The 31s are much more common, and wouldn't require a wheel change, so I may end up with 31s

So how is the ride? What suspension did you have on your Jeep before?
