My son and myself did the install. We did the springs and TC drop in a day and a half. Then the next weekend we did the BL. The plan was to only run the SL and TC drop untill I needed tires. But it was getting too much vibes, so I installed the MML and BL. I took the TC drop spacers out and I still have slight vibes. I'm going to put a few washers on to drop the TC a little and see if it helps. Besides that it rides great.
This is a before shot when it had a 2" BB.

3" springs only
This is with the 3" springs and BL.
Springs and shocks:
As soon as the 32" tires wear out I plan on going to 33". Then I will get bumpers and a winch.
Thanks!! He is a 15 yr old that likes to go wheelin. He sure was a huge help and was asking alot of questions. I will probably buy him another Jeep when he gets his license, maybe a CJ to restore together.
I'm finally going to get rid of the transfer case drop. I have Savvy aluminum upper adjustable control arms on the way.
I like the Zone lift, but I just don't see how anyone can do 3" springs with only the MML and not have to drop the transfer case to be vibe free.
I got the SYE installed and tomorrow I will be putting the control arms on. Now I'm going to have to save for the other arms.
The SYE was pretty easy to do, I did it with the TC on the tranny. I bought the lock ring pliers at Sears, they opened up a little over 1".
Got'er done. The Jeep is smooth as butter now, no more vibes and the skid is back where it belongs.
The Savvy aluminum control arms are definitely the way to go. I had to disconnect the swaybar to get it out of the way for opening the mounting holes out to 7/16".
I only had to turn the arms a few times to get the pinion angle to move 4 degrees, didn't need a floor jack.
