And I won't have handling problems on road either right? because sadly that's where the jeep spends the majority of it's time...

Nope.

At 1st you will notice a stronger "return to center" of the steering wheel but like I said you will get used to it and not notice it after about a week or two.No noises and no extra wear.

If it makes you feel any better, I'll likely go with truetracs on mine. I'll have to regear the front though to 3.73s or lower though.

Alright I got it back from the shop a few days ago and I've driven it a bit and I can say I definitely notice the stronger "return to center", but it doesn't bother me at all. What does bother me is the fact that it pulls to the left. This is just the car being out of alignment right? This wouldn't be anything permanent caused by the truetrac correct? I can't wait to get a chance to test the new posi though.

Also, How much rubbing am I going to get on 265/75/16's? I guess I've accepted that I can't go bigger because I want duratracs and the next size up is 285/75/16 which will be way too big I'm guessing... Is that a rubbing problem when offroading or is it like an axle strength problem?

3 pages and still asking the same questions
with the BDS lift where you're sitting you're going to have quite a bit of rubbing
of course we don't know what wheels but if stock then there will even be more than say with an aftermarket wheel with 4 inches of backspacing / 7 inches wide
With the lift you have, height you are sitting at, where you live, personally I'd stay with a 245/75/16 or something along those lines .

Get the alignment checked since they had to undo some alignment cams to remove the front diff.

Unless your at 3.75" or above your going to have a lot of rubbing offroad with 265/75's,more if your using 8" wide rims and/or less then 4" of back spacing.Even if you have enough lift and the correct rims you will need to pound over the pinchweld and do some creative trimming front and rear.
