I live in Wauconda, northern burbs about 45 mins to an hour north of Chicago.

Are those the new 33s? or still the older set f tires?

There are other ways of adding belly clearance without lifting your vehicle off the axles...like 40s, 42s, 44s, etc

Next time you need an alignment let me know and I'll show you how it's done. And I don't have any armor for sale, all my armor is still in use. You can get good diff covers for around $100, and oil pan skids arent that bad in price either. I should get an oil pan skid now that I think about it.

Man I need one sooo bad. I came down on a rock in the dry river bed at the cliffs and put a nice sharp dent right in my pan. Like to the point of it being a 32nd of an inch away from puncture. Sooooo. Time to start armoring up the jeep.

I have been fairly lucky to not hit my oil pain in the big rocks or on the trails. Part of that is due to my jeep sitting about 2" too tall (which I'll be taking care of soon) and also because I did a 1.25" BL and a 1" MML. The MML gives you that extra inch of engine clearance.

If your motor mount bushings are in good shape then just get the block spacers to mount under the motor mounts. A lot of companies sell the spacer kits. If your motor mounts are shot then consider brown dog full replacements.

It's easiest to do a BL at the same time you do the MML, it will only add an extra inch and give you just a little bit more fender, corner, and rocker clearance while lifting up that motor as well with the MML. It will also help your rear drive line angles by angling the transfer case output yoke down.

don't go any higher then a 1.25" BL..

And thanks for the comlpiments, it's been an insane and fun journey...

sorry about that man i missed your post. lol. thanks! and the AEV springs are amazing. they ride super stiff w the bilstiens but i kinda like it. the front are just sooooo long. they try to account for the hevy bumpers and winch and doors and hard top to settel em down a bit. how ever,,,, i have none of that. i kept my jeep susper light, so it sits like 3 inches higher up front. drives me nuts. NUTS. i might actualy try out metal cloaks springs at some point.
