Thanks guys, I will start one here in a bit.


The Rubi really isn't getting changed much and therefore doesn't really need much of a thread. I'm just cleaning it up (flares, fixing some paint spots on the rocker guards, skids, and suspension to prevent rust, etc) a bit then wheeling it.

Sad to see the WJ go, but I'm still going to use this thread to help with my build. Parts ordering will start very soon and I'm now looking for a 14b rear instead of a 60 since they're so much easier to find and cheaper to boot. Everything else will be modeled closely off of your build to hopefully minimize the amount of headaches and downtime with my build. Congrats on the Rubi!

I know you sold your wj, but did you have any driveline vibes once you had it complete? I'm talking about on the street up near 50 to 80 mph?? Me and 2 others with 6"+ of lift can't get rid of the vibes once we geared up to 4:56 and higher gears. Just curious if you had similar issues or not. Thx! Killer build btw.

Nope. I had some tire balancing issues but once I got those straightened out it rode smooth up through 80 which was as high as I took it. I had manual hubs which I usually had disengaged on the street but I drove it at highway speeds with them engaged too and didn't have driveline vibes then either.

Where are your vibes coming from?

Ok. Cool. What height of lift were you at? And diff gear ratio?
Were all getting the vibes from the front and rear driveshafts. Mine is mostly the front. The other 2 guys have swapped in jk44 front and rear with 5:13 gears. None of us had vibes until the gear change. We know the shafts are spinning faster and have had multiple shops look at them and rebuilt / balanced shafts multiple times etc. so I'm just trying to narrow down situations.

Thx for the feedback!

I was at 6" coils with a 3/4" spacer in the rear and the front had some 2" spacers on top to compensate for winch and bumpers' weight.

I was running Yukon 5.13s with the factory front driveshaft and a Tom Woods rear. I was also running a 231 tcase with a standard length slip yoke eliminator. I had JB conversions build one of their HD cases with the correct input for the transmission. I set the pinion angle 1 degree below straight at the transfer case output shaft.

Did you guys stick with the stock t-case and slip yoke shaft? If so that's probably where your issuse lie. I went with a 231 specifically for that reason (couldn't find a SYE for the stock tcase)

Yeah we are basically at the same lift as yours. We are all running 242hd t- cases. They have sye's, and I don't. One guy even swapped his 247 back in with a sye, and it didn't make a difference.
I think a little could be coming from my slip yoke, but I really only have vibes on decel for the rear and they are pretty minor. I can live with mine on the rear. Mine is more the front that gets nasty. So much that you can't see thru the rear view mirror because it's shaking so much. Haha. I have a little play on my tcase yoke and pinion yoke on my front end. I just ordered a dial indicator to measure it, and will have to research what is acceptable. I wouldn't think any play would be acceptable, so not sure. Just trying to rule out everything and get to the bottom of it.

Could be the cv ball joint in the front shaft. Shouldn't have play in it. That would cause some nasty vibrations if it is worn.

I will have to check that. Mine is original that I had extended and balanced when I lifted it. The other two guys got new shafts built I believe. Thanks again for your help!
