I'm right around 5" and have no t-case drop either. I do have minor vibes but they should go away when I rebuild my rear DS and re-set the rear pinion angle.

ya no TC drop is needed

and 4.5" is good enuff for 33"s but 5.5" isnt a bad idea if you plan on running steel bumpers and such... the extra weight will equal you out to around 4.5

^ X2 on that.
My front end dropped about 3/4 of an inch just by adding a front steel bumper.

215 miles per tank? Ouch. Somewhere around 10-11 MPG?

Bought some stuff to clean it up yesterday, but it's been raining the past 2 days, so I haven't been able.

Also picked up some Craftsman SUV jackstands on Sunday. I'm sure I'll need those soon enough.

I have a line on another 97 white ltd that looks kind of getto with running boards and no U/C package. If I can get a deal on my salvage I might try and rebuild including swapping my rebuilt axles. Also looking at a Black 2000 WJ LTD. with 81,000 but the dealer is asking almost 8 grand. My ins. co. appraised mine at 4450.00 and I am still waiting on the other party's insurance to respond. Still need to post my pics I will get to it soon. Before and after. SOOOOOOOO SAD
