i've driven my friends with 4.56 and 35's. it was sluggish, but not slow. youre not gonna be winning any races with a 4.5 lift and 33's anyway.

you will have to trim. a lot.

haha yeah pretty sure!


well here is the bolt that we had to cut outta the leaf spring... pain in the *** gettin it out! bolt was hardend so it was a pain to drill. but thankfully the easy out worked and didnt snap!


and here it is!!! lift is complete. rear is stiff as hell... but i got an alignment so its all good. the rear DS angle is like 75degrees def need to get the SYE installed... i went to install the t-case drop and the 2 bolts busted havent even tried to pull the studs out yet... might just install the SYE in the jeep and drill out the bolts and thread in new ones.

Lol don't be a ***** when you wheel. If you go out there nervous and scared to break ****, your not gonna have fun, also if you get a little body damage, you can't cry about it, if you do, should have bought a bmw or something. Mines a dd too, and I'm not to easy on it.
