New lift came in today.. Hopefully will have it installed by the end of the day tomorrow.. I also cleaned up and painted my old half inch lift blocks and will be installing them as well with the 3/4" puck that I never installed.. that way I should come out to 5" of lift!

haha thanks! not yet on the 33s.. But hopefully soon.. As for the aussie, I love it. locks up good off road and unlocks quite nicely in the corners.. yes the clicking can be herd and some times even felt (depending on how hard and fast you turn) but it don't bother me any.. but yes I highly recommend it.

Another set of MTs for 33s or something a bit more agressive like Super Swampers? Glad to hear the Aussie is working out for you, noise isn't an issue for me so I might get it. Personally im between the Aussie and Detroit, but might wait and build up an axle like you did. Good luck with the lift tomorrow if you do it.

Well finished the lift today!! I am very please.. Rides very well.. I did have a little complication when installing everything though.. After getting everything on I couldn't get the track bar to align to save my life.. So I had to go out and buy an adjustable track bar.. lucky for me there is a local 4x4 shop here that had one in stock..

After getting all the kinks worked out, my leafs don't fit because I ordered the leaf for a dana 35t and I have a crysller 8.25...my build sheet said it was a dana 35 and a quick glance I thought it was a dana 35 since that's all I've had on all my jeeps. so the ubolts don't fit (from what im told) and the center pin in the leaf is too big for the axle. So if it wasn't for my leafs, my lift would be done....sorry to rant/complain in your build thread.

I had the same problem with the alignment pin on mine cause I had to buy a longer ones for my lift blocks.. so I ended up having to open up the hole a little but on the leaf perch till the leafs sat down the way they should.. as for the u-bolts my lift came with 2 sets.. but I ended up using the ones I had cause they were basically brand new and longer then the ones that came with the lift.
