I got the Yukon ultimate 8.8 kit installed to day and I must say I am digging the new rear track width I gained from it! . On a side note I decided to check the ring gear bolts and every one of them was hand tight I got them all torqued down to spec along with the bearing caps glad I caught that now before I toasted toasted a r&p. can't complane tho since I didn't pay my buddy that set them up! On a side note I bought to new unit bearing to go with the new front shaft that way my trail spares have there on set of bearings on them which will make changing them a piece of cake on the trail! I plan on ordering axle tube seals for up front tonight!

I think you should leave the Jeep the way it sits. Just go wheel the crap out of it.

Looks good! How did you gain track width? Are those shafts longer?

The c-clip eliminators add 1 inch per side according to there web site! It a pretty noticeable difference none the less!

LCG is a dumb term. It's better to go off the hight of the top windshield frame rather then lift hight. I you can have the lowest overall hight measured from the highest point of the jeep (aka top of the windshield frame) on the biggest tire possible you should have a good CG.

So confused......I thought the whole lcog was about stuffing the largest tire possible with the lowest amount of lift possible?

Technically....yes. You are keeping the Jeep closer to the ground. That means keeping the weight down there as well. Most true LCG run full width axles so they can run bigger tires while keeping the weight closer to the ground.

I could go into the physics and math of everything, but thats too much to worry about with a couple beers in my system. Full widths give you a wider stance, reducing the risk of tipping.

I was just saying you don't have to limit yourself to the common 3" of lift to have a good stable LCG rig. If you have a decent track width, wheelbase and good weight down low you should have a very stable rig.

Anyway, your rig should be very stable with 3.5" of lift and the track width you have now. I just wouldn't worry to much about the term LCG...

I am thinking side hilling should be a lot easier now any ways! So I sold my old 35s today so I order my front seats/and rear seat cover a long with some 303 aerospace spray (uv protector) ! I also have alloy USA axle tubes seals on the way now for the front! On a side note my revolvers should be here tomorrow!
