Might have mine confused with someone elses. From the start I wanted to avoid a TC drop and not make my ground clearance even worse so when my lift was in I immediately got a new quigley driveshaft. Ive never had any vibes just a little rubbing of the rear trackbar on my gas tank skid.

Ive never actually looked under your Jeep Kev but you have a tc drop in? Are you still using the stock driveshaft?

We put the TC drop in with the lift and I ran the stock driveshaft for awhile. Then I ordered the Quigley DS. Not sure if you remember, but I posted awhile back how I went about getting the first Quigley Rubicon DS (at least the first for a Rubi with the larger pilot pin in the flange). I think I have a pic in my build thread that shows that I only have about an inch of slip joint showing when the Rubi is sitting at normal stance.

If you have the double cardan shaft and adjustable uppers you should be fine removing your TC drop and adjusting your pinion angle. The main reason for a double cardan drivshaft is to avoid lowering the TC.

Yeah looking to get the TNT rockers for Xmas or potentially free if I win the giveaway

Was thinking in the future of when I eventually get corner armor I want a rocker that covers all the way up to the door opening and butts up evenly to the corners

To be honest, I didn't even notice that you only had one side installed at RC

Minor updates to report. Nothing crazy going on right now just stock piling some parts until after the new years when Ill be making some big upgrades.

Items recently purchased:
-set of 4 Spidertrax 1.25" wheel spacers from another forum member for $65
-2 quarts of Chassis Saver for the price of 1
-Used clayton engine skid plate with all hardware for $192

Also my new passenger front Zone shock came in the mail. Warranty covered the leaking one I have on there now.
Lastly I sold my Currie Rock Ribz and will be buying some TNT rockers, hopefully they have some sort of Xmas sale.

Why the wheel spacers? You changing your wheels/tires? You're on 16" Moabs with 33s right now arent you?

So do mine. I put like 4 washers behind the steering stops but still get a bit of rub. I might have to consider some spacers instead, but I worry about the cops giving me a hard time when my tires stick out to far from under the flares.
