I have the NP242 and have the RE 3.5" SR kit with no transfer case drop. No crazy vibrations; just a tiny one at 30 MPH. I guess Jeeps are different?

You should paint the flares, and paint/remove side molding. Otherwise it looks good, can't wait to see it lifted.

Read my mind I am getting matching number paint, peeling off the side molding, and painting the whole thing. I know it will go off road but when its clean I want this puppy to shine. The top's clear is peeling and there are some imperfections as well in the paint (has been repainted). So I'm going to paint it the correct way

Finished the lift about an hour ago and right when I started it up the idle jumped to 2K. the idle does not change. Any thoughts? Now I have yet to put on the drop bracket that came with the TC drop. Would this effect the idle? Thanks guys. Oh and pictures will follow...

Disco the battery for a few minutes. This will reset the engine parameters in the PCM. Start the engine and let it run for a minute. If the engine doesn't idle properly after this, you likely need to clean or replace the IAC.

Lift

Well the high idle was fixed by simply unplugging the battery. Thanks for the help csouers. Also got updated pictures!

Taking the clamps off of the leaf packs


Go figure, was going to break a bolt or two




Fuzzy picture but you can kind of see the rake


Little bit of frustration at this point


Knuckle busting. Gotta keep reminding myself I love the jeep...


LIFT COMPLETE


Had to put them on




So overall, had problems with the rear right shock mount (broken bolts), transfer case studs, and putting in the coils. But it was all worth it in the end. Now just waiting for the rims and tires

Well today I was driving the Jeep at a sustained speed of 55 MPH and I started to get a severe death wobble. Is this my sign that I need an SYE or is this a symptom of something else? I am very worried at this moment and need some reassurance!

Rims and tires

Well finally put on the new rims and tires. Ended up going with 31x10.50 Yokohama Geolander A/Ts. Took a quick pic of it after I got it back home from the shop. I'll get better ones up tomorrow:



And the death wobble was from a bad steering stabilizer and no lock nut on the adjustable trac-bar. Woops
