Don't mind it at all, the guy aske 7,500 for it but we talked him down to 6500 beacuse the suspension was "worn out" and a couple odds and ends. It was a straight steal. And i have 3.07's, it sucks. Hopefully going to regear to 4.56.

i'd get rid of your tc drop and do a 1"mml and trim your fan cover for reattaching for now. may sound a bit complicated but it gets rid of your tc drop and isnt hard to do. dont get a sye with your lift, you shouldnt need one unless you are doing that tummy tuck you mentioned. In that case. youll need a 1" bl as well which would cancel out the need to trim your fan cover.

I found a tummy tuck that does not require a body lift so i wont' have to worry about any of that stuff. and i can't remove my tc drop right now lol, i had really bad driveline vibes after i put the life and tires on and didn't wan't to mess anything up. Thank's for the reply.

I thought the vibes came from the output shaft going to the rear axle from such the extreme angle with a fixed yoke? How will a mml change that?

with the engine being raised it tilts the transmission allowing the angles of the input and output drastically more of a stock angle, plus you won't lose ground clearance and maintain a more clean look, some guys dont do a mml bc most kits come with a tc drop bc its cheap and easier. The mml will also be easier on your ujoints as well. the benefits of a mml too sets u upo for a high tuck or tummy tuck skid later on down the road. You wont a need a tc drop bracket either that you would more than likely need with a tc drop, that people later discover,when using the 4wd lever.

Your Jeep is sick man, i can't stop reading your build thread lol. It's pretty cool that we have the same year, and model pretty much other than your's is auto and way sicker. Just curious how much did the drive shaft from carolina driveline cost? I like how they are a local business and look like they have very good quality products, would rather buy from them than anyone else. Also on the video of your Jeep with your dad's 33's and moabs, do i hear an aftermarket exhaust? I like the sound. Probably my favorite TJ on the site.

Thanks man. Yeah Carolina driveline is awesome. I know atleast 5 friends that have their driveshafts and they have not had one problem. I went and got measured up and bought a sye with a driveshaft that ran me 400. So I'm guessing just the driveshaft itself around 200. I only have a straight pipe on my jeep right now. I plan on getting a flowmaster original 40 with a turn down, but that won't be until I get the money. Ill be watching your build though. Keep it it up.
