Rubicon Express 3.5" Superflex Flex Pics

One more flex request thread
PLEASE direct me to another thread if one exists. I looked through a couple "XJ Flex" threads, but it was slow going, and I didn't find much of what I was looking for.

Anyways, I'm bringing the XJ down from 33s and 5" to 31's and 3.5", for practicality reasons. I'd really like to see what kind of performance I can expect. Could you please post some RE 3.5" SF flex pics, or links to some? Preferably with 31's but anything will do.

Thanks!!
Hope this isn't beating a dead horse too bad...

Don't have any pics just do a search, if your coming down to 31s though and still plan on wheeling it get some lockers to make up for the difference. If anything it will be more capable then it was before... id take 31s and locked f/r over 33s open/open any day.

Thats the plan, I think I'll leave it open in the rear, for now... Lunchbox in the front.

RIP, thieves suck.

Thanks guys!! Helping!
These pics are making me very curious about some drop brackets though.
Did you guys experience any vibes without a t-case drop?

I heard you might need one. I've got a SYE on mine. Don't need CA drop brackets. Mine rides great with Rancho RS5000s and superflex short arms

I had minor vibrations that I was able to clear up with a t-case drop and minor shims. I ran 6" with a stock DS and it really wasnt a big deal - but I had a 1" t case drop plus 3/16" frame stiffeners so a 1 3/16" t case drop which is pretty severe.

I would run an SYE if I were you. The hack N Tap is cheap and isn't too bad to install.
