yeah i had a 4" tera flex and had no problem with my drivshaft... most people with just 4" of lift dont to a sye unless they are longarmed or wheeling hard..

I don't think I would have said this before crawling this thread, but 35"s look just right on a TJ. Big and burly without looking cartoonish.

How do you like them? I was told the 15x8's weigh 19lbs ea, opposed to a black D steelie weighing 28lbs or so ea.

longarmed and wheeling hard has nothing to do with SYE. i had "4.5 lift on short arms and couldnt drive without the jeep shaking to the point of things coming loose. its all about driveline angles. once the SYE, CV driveshaft was in my jeep was smooth on the road again

well it all depends on if you have adjustable arms.. i know its in the drivelines angles and i had mine set with the uppers.. theres so much talk on here bout drivelines i didnt want to go in the whole story again..not every jeep is the same..

im not arguing that you can do "4 lift with no SYE, cause you are right on every jeep being different. i was just pointing out longarms and wheeling have nothing to do with SYE. if my rig was a dedicated trail rig only i would have cared less about the vibes that the SYE, CV cured.

thanks, sorry I started an off topic discussion.
I know they are all different as well. from what I have read 4.0 w/ auto trans has the most trouble with vibs at even 2.5"s of lift. where as old style 5 spds, do not
I may start a new thread with a poll.

I'm cutting it close to my budget simply with the lift, tc drop, and tires. I know I won't have the sye/ cv shaft option for many months from now. so it's a gamble I guess. edit: I'm even tempted to run ATs b/c they are about $200 cheaper total
I think I can live with 4.10s and 35s, as I see many have dealt with, but major vibs may not wait if I get them.
plus its my DD

back to the pics

I love them. The only thing I don't like is the center cap. It only attaches on one side. I've emailed Black Rock and told them they should change this design.

Oh and for those wondering, I was running the 4" lift with 35s and a t-case drop with no vibes at all. I've now got an SYE and CV dirveshaft but it was mainly to get more clearance and to make my jeep buddy's girlfriend stop asking me if my Jeep was lowered

35's start to look small when you get into the rocks that come up to your rockers
