Nice response. With that type of attitude you are going to get allot of help around here!


I'll give you a hint:
8" of lift is WAY to much for 37" tires.

Well, we're at least getting there. You need to look at clearencing the body. Anything more than 4" of suspension lift is too much. How do you plan to address the change in driveline angle with a lift?

Sounds like you need to do some research, starting with what a Slip Yoke Eliminator is and moving from there.

Vador at 8" do you plan to stretch the wb if not you'll be pretty tipsy. There is a reason people are not running tall lifts anymore. Its because they can get large tires to fit with some fab work on a small lift and have them work well for instance look at Bradentaala 's build thread he's running 42's on 3-4" suspension. His jeep works damn good I've wheeled with him a bunch over the past 2 years.

Also Check your PM's.
