Thanks in advance.
They adjust 0-7 inches of lift and I've got adjustable uppers and lowers front and rear.. I was able to reuse my TW driveshaft that I had before I did the mini stretch, but I'd like to get a JE Reel shaft down the road. With me only going 1.5 I don't have any problems with the gas tank, brakes or rear track bar, but its close. If you have the evap system in the rear pass wheel well then you will have to relocate it or by pass it. I have mine bypassed and haven't gotten the check engine light yet. If Arkansas had a smog test I'm pretty sure it wouldn't pass though.

Oh cool. And it solves the annoying clunkity clunk over chop bumps!

Looks complicated

Nah, actually it made sense when I looked it up, but I am a ways from that level of mods. Plus my suspension is brand new so I am not about to swap any shocks. The original question was more framed to decide on what kind of ratios I should be considering.

That was with a budget boost coil spacer. It has changed quite a bit since then. Same height, but all the suspension is a rubicon express super flex kit.

I was looking into doing this... Do you have a writeup on it or anything? I'm looking into a total of about 2.5" of suspension lift when it's done with.

It might look complicated to you. But go to this jeep built (float test) and look at the picture of how well his rig works and I bet you will start to thing about this as a mod to your jeep. Imped Jeep is how i hope to see my jeep setup one day.

It's pretty simple. PM me if you want to ask specifics so we don't clog this thread.

I know it isn't LCG specific, but there are a lot of knowledgable people on this thread already whose advice I could use.

Thanks
I'm currently running 3.73's on 35's and have been for nearly three years now. It's still pretty peppy but I can't do a burnout or anything like that. I can still use 5th gear on a flat surface but going uphill you do have to downshift to 4th or possibly even 3rd depending on how steep the hill is. That being said, It will definitely be worth it when I regear to 4.56's but the 3.73's are more than liveable until then...

Fixed. If you're paying for it, don't waste time with non-optimal gears. If I could support them, I'd go 5.13.

You need AT LEAST 5.13's to overcome that deep OD. The NV3550 doesn't suffer from that problem.

From someone who has ran both 35's and now 37's on the 42rle I'll tell you the 5.13's dont cut it if you have any type of hills. 5.38's would be nice. I may look into them in the future. But it's a dog right now.

I know I'm gonna get flamed for this, but I'm not planning on going any bigger then 35s anytime in the next couple of years. So I think I'm gonna stick with the 13's
