Well, I installed my Rock Krawler Adjustable lower control arms in the rear of the Jeep today. With the 2.25"BB and the Rokmen TT my yoke and pinion angles are at 6* and the driveshaft is at 15*. I do have a bit of a vibe now between 50 and 55 mph so I'll have to play with it some more to cure that. Also, I have to mess with the t-case linkage because it is binding on the pivot that mounts to the body, so I cannot shift into 4L right now.

thanks sportcoupe for the great deal on the arms!

Managed to fix the vibe today by playing with the lengths of the LCA's. I rotated the axle forward a bit and have the angles set at:

Yoke: 6*
Axle: 13.5*
Pinion: 7.5*

I know that without a SYE, the Yoke and Pinion angles should be the same, parallel. All I know is, when they were parallel, I had vibes, now I do not.

It just means your D35 is going to explode like the toothpicks it's made from

Good to hear you got that worked out.

Received the solution to my t-case linkage today. (hopefully)

Bracket from Advanced Adapters



And, the modifications I'll be making due to my belly up skid and thanks to Alexia's experience.

Any pics of it with BL, etc? I have a 3" lift on mine and have been kicking around different tire ideas.

Added a sticker to the tire cover today. From the Slayer album "Reign In Blood"



The sticker is a real heavy duty Vinyl! Not the cheap thin, flimsy vinyl type, made by Xtremjeep for a very reasonable cost!

I had completely forgotten I even sent that mount to you! Glad to see it worked out so well. That is a lot of skid plates too.

Little extra help with the transfer case linkage and to hopefully avoid needing to pull it back out again. I found that the rod for the crank was too long and rubbed the rubber bearing cover against the tub. I ditched the little piece of rubber and cut the rod down to just a few millimeters sticking out of the bearing. I can take a picture later if you are unsure of what I mean.
