guys, just because rough country deosn't include in their kit, doesn't mean it shouldn't be done. if rough country included the SYE in the kit, the price would go up significantly, and they would sell less kits. that how the automotive aftermarket industry works.

Great pics everyone. That's the look I'm after, hope it turns out that way.

C-Mil... Do you know how many degree's the shims have?

At the moment I have the transfer case dropped 3/4" with a 3" lift and no vibe. I'm putting together parts for a 4.5", hope to not have any vibes . If it comed back, I'll at 1/4" . If it doesn't go away, I was planning on adding shims.

Hope to find a solution that will keep me on the road while I get a SYE setup together...

Question.... the 4.5" RC SA kit I bought still new in the box off of CL doesn't have brake lines. Do I definitely need these or can I get by with the stock lines?

Definitely new brakelines.

I re-located my stock lines for my 3" lift and at full droop I barely have any extra slack. 4.5" I'd rip them off.

If you do the re-location of the front and pick up some YJ brakelines which are 3" longer, you should be fine.

i believe the degree shims are in the 4-6 degree size. im not exactly sure, but thats my guess. call RC and they'll tell you, the costumer service up there is outstanding.

oh and as far as brake lines are concerned, my RC kit came with line extensions, and I can flex out till my fenders start bending and havent run into any problems yet. but I will definitely be purchasing some new extended braided steel lines fairly soon...

Ok...I finally got the 4.5" RC AAL lift on along with pro comp 33's. The first pic is of my HEEP the day I bought it. The 2nd is after new wheels and some bedliner, and the others are the other day after finishing the lift. I'm rubbing pretty badly on the rear of the front passenger's side tire, so I will be trimming shortly.
