the Slight vibration shimmy you are experincing is most likely your torque arm bushing/tranny mount. If you have stock gearing and bigger tires it will most definately be exaggerated by those. I would replace those first and maybe your engine mounts too. It seemed to help with mine but didnt completely go away until I regeared to 4.56 gears. just my .02

your yj looks beastly man. btw whats your rocker panel height with the rc lift? I have a slight vibration upon takeoff too and mine is due because my trans mounts are loose and worn. At one point my tcase drop was useless and I ended up getting nasty driveline vibs even at hwy speeds to a point it blew a Ujoint.

Added. Magnaflow muffler today. Replaced the tranny mount. The bracket was loose that held the mount in place from the transfer case. But unfortunately I still get the vibration when driving an also the 4wd shifter shakes when I take off. Maybe still look into an sye. Anyway. Love how things are coming along. Still have my tj flares that I have to install when I have time.

Did you replace to torque arm bushing also? Usually that's to culprit with the shaking shifter on take off's.

So I decided to use the herculiner kit to toughen things up.

Let me tell you. If its done right. This stuff is legit. I prepped the **** out of the floor and did about 3 coats. Love it so far. Going to put the seats back in tmra.

Did Your RC 4" lift come with all shims and relocation brackets to lower TC and Brake lines, etc. Your Jeep is looking awesome BTW. Keep the updates coming.

Yes. Came with all that. Didn't use the brake line relocators. Just relocated the lines, and have plenty of room for travel

Awesome I have been considering the RC lift and I am looking at your beast, and i am sure that is the route I am going to go. How long did it take you to install?

Def an great bang for the buck and serves its purpose. I heard the new setups were better than the old so I ran with it and so far I love it and have no complaints. Took me a day to do it only because I took my time, the hardest part was taken the old off. But it def gets my vote.
