I want to see that truss on the WJ you were talking about Kevin. It was a T&J truss right? I don't know how much I like those trusses that run under the axle.. Not a fan of losing clearance.

Rick - 4.88s with the 4.0 and 42rle is what a lot of people would recommend. This transmission sucks.

Well Rick you got those fancy new shocks, now let's see if you can drive! Haha you better go on the Mojave trip!

I like the UCF truss. It's more low profile compared to most, and at a decent price. http://www.undercoverfab.com/truss-s...ss-system.html

I like that truss its low profile should clear the oil pan

What about ironrock offroads inner sleeve kit? You think that would be enough?

I like the trus but it doesn't appear like it would work very easily with the Currie axle housing kit without some modifications to either the truss, or the JJ kit... It would be nice if UCF made the same truss but already set up for the Currie kit.

You could easily cut a notch in the passenger side of the truss to slide over the already welded and gussetted currie jj kit. Then burn in the truss to that.

ive been impressed with the abuse a inner sleeve kit can take. gusset kit, inner sleeve, gusset on the steering knuckles, mini skids for the lower arms. sounds like a good combo to me. the hardest part of a traditional truss is welding to the center section. clearence to the oil pin isnt much of an issue.the bigger problem with the UCF kit is that it does nothing for the short side of the axle. thats why a good truss is done on the bottom of the housing going form C to C.

I know that, but I could just as easy have a truss made locally for the price that incorporates the JJ as part of the structure of the truss. I would've already purchased the UCF truss except when I asked them about the JJ kit I never recieved a satisfactory reply. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f43/n...ystem-1288314/

In that thread he makes it sound like a JJ could just be pressed into the mount. I sent him a PM to get more info.
