She's getting her new lift started today! Couple of newbies getting started!

I'm running the same kit as well and it's been great. Now we need pics of the new bigger jeep!

Well her she is all done! The front and rear bumbers are new additions as well. Front is smittybuilt xrc. And rear is smittybuilt src. Great so far. Except the transfer case shift bracket makes a cluncking noise. How did you who have it get rid of it?

Are you running a tcase drop? I had the same with mine when I was running the drop brackets. SYE and CV DS fixed all of it.

Yes, running the tcase drop. SYE is up next on the list along with winch and other small things

Sounds like it is just the shift linkage from the handle to the tcase. They make drop brackets for them but I'd just wait and put that money towards the SYE and CV. Only issues that may cause is 4L might not fully engage and if you do wheel it the linkage might pop out but that is simple to put back in.

The drop bracket is on there. It comes with lift kit. That's what's making the noise. We found a kit online to stop it until we get the money for a SYE.
