So with the added weight of the spare and bumper the jeep seems to be sagging! So I am going to add a little bigger shackle to level it out.......how much lift do you guys think I need to add to level it out?

Its tough to say... I would fill the gas tank, load the crap you take wheeling in it and see exactly what your going to need. Maybe give us readings top of tire to lower lip of flares. If you have an old set of stock leafs you could add a leaf spring into each pack. Just a shackle would be hellish long from just the pic.

I don't think it's that bad. You still have plenty of clearance in the rear and it's not something I would have noticed if you hadn't of mentioned it. It looks like you already have lift shackles. How long are they from bolt center to center?

Can you give me more detail on the power steering upgrade? I'm going to do this soon. I have a bid on a PS gear/ Pitman arm.

What parts did you use? Any surprises?

BTW: I like your wheel and tire combo. I have 33x10.5 and the lack of power steering is impossible; especially with the locker engaged. I'm glad you contrasted 35x13.5 vs. 35x12.5. I think you have me convinced.

I am running 5/8 shackles right now because of the military wrap spring! I think I am going too to switch to vacj5 1.25 shackle in the rear! The pics are of the jeep with a full tank of fuel but I dot have my spare shafts and recover gear in the rig or passengers in there hahaha!

I bought the whole ps setup for something like 340 from a local jeep bone yard so I did't really have to dig around for odds and ends, for the drop pitman I just used my old zj stock arm and it worked out great! The only thing that caught me off guard was the bracket that came with my ps pump did fit my setup so I had to strip the old idler pulley setup off my stock bracket and use it to mount it......other than that it was a pretty straight forward swap and well worth the effort ! and thank I love the wheel/tire setup I am glad I went with the 13.50!

so it's been awhile since I updated my thread so hear it goes, I know its nothing cool but I installed a aem brute force intake the only difference I could feel is that my little 2.5 spools up alot faster I can't say if there was any mpg as of yet! I got my sliders in the mail this last week and should be getting them welded up this Thursday, oh yeah I installed my vacj5 1.25 boom shackles to lever it out!! thats it for now........

saw on Page 4 where you broke a spring and was thinking about buying new springs. I would advise BDS. Really good springs... kinda pricy, but I like their no bs warrenty. If you are the original owner of the springs they are covered for as long as you own the jeep, one year or twenty. If you can bend or break one they will send you a new one free of charge. If they start to sag they will replace them. Really good company and I have a friend that has a BDS lift and I will get one when I get mine too.
