It was a guy I deal with local that called me about five times during the balancing process to update with what was going on. All that is left now to buy is a good drill bit and some brake bleeding supplies......and of course my vacation coming up the week of the 18-24. My 2 year anniversary is on the 20th so i have the 16-19th to do the lift. Here are a few pictures of the tires they are 33x12.50 Mastercraft MT's. I wanted BF goodrich MT's or Cooper SST's but it was a $400 difference for the set of 5. I will up date you guys in a week with my progress.

You will like the mastercrafts... I have had a couple sets, and loved them. They are made by Cooper ya know, and I am a HUGE cooper fan!!!

Can't wait to see the end result

Well I have been reading a lot about death wobble and how tires/wheels have a lot to do with it most of the time. So I thought that because I have a 1.25" body lift and a 3/4" spacer up front that I could go ahead and stuff the tires under the wheel wells and test drive it around with the stock suspenion on it. This way i could tell if the tires are good to go or not. I would not be doing any wheeling untill the lift goes on next week so there should not be a problem. I drove it around any where from 35 to 65 mph without any problems. I also hit some bumps on purpose to see if i had any rubs and did not have any. I also turn the wheel at full turn and did not have any rubbing issues either. So now when the lift goes on next week and i have any problems it will be a little easier to track down. Here are some prelift pics with tires.

yeah I know I already want 35's but I am going to have to save another year for gears,brakes, steering, 16 or 17" wheels and the longarm upgrade. Not to mention the gas prices right now. But I will be doing bumpers lockers and more armor next.

Well Today I am one step closer to installing the lift. Friday can not come quick enough. I just thought that i would share a pretty good deal i think on riddler diff covers. I dont normaly shop at 4 wheel parts but they are running free shipping on the riddler covers as well as the lube lockers. I have never used the lube lockers and have read good things and bad things about them ( kind of like everything you buy). So I ordered them tonight so I guess I will find out first hand. I guess I have a question about the diff fluid I will be changing and adding to it. I am at 15000 miles so while i am doing work on the jeep and bought new diff covers.....and its just time to change the fluids i will be doing it this week. I am probaly going to be using either mobil 1 or royal purple. The question I have is Mobil one says "Mobil 1 Synthetic Gear Lube 75W-140 LS contains special friction modifiers designed for limited slip-type differentials. In most applications, the addition of special LS (limited slip) additives is not required. For axles requiring the highest level of limited-slip performance, OEM specific LS additives can be added to this fluid. " and Royal purple says "All viscosities of Max-Gear are formulated with hypoid friction modifiers necessary for use in clutch or cone type differentials. No additional additives are necessary." So if i use Mobil 1 Do i need to use a friction modifer in the rear diff with my d44 Trac-Lok? As far as the front d30 goes do I just use 80W-90 non synthetic (like Mobilube HD Plus 80W-90)?

So I started the lift today around 11:00am and i worked on it till about 9:30pm or so. Everything seem to be going well untill i got to the coil springs and the coil spring compressors. I messed with those things from about 2:00 till 8:00 trying to get them in. I get them in and now i am not sure if the control arms look the way they are suppose to. Here are the pics. the SF joints seem to be turned on some. I have not tightened them down yet or centered the axles yet so that may straighten ever thing out. Here are the pics please let me know if anything looks funny.

Good read. I have a 4.5 SF on the way with a AA SYE and TW shaft. I am still waiting on my wheels but I am worried about how my tires are going to look. I had the 4.5 SF and a 1" BL on a previous jeep and it flexed awesome. It had 35x12.50's on 15x8 wheels and they would rub a little at full stuff. I went with 33x13.50's on 15x10's this time, but I have tube fenders up front now so I know scrubbing wont be a problem. Could you do me a favor? Measure the height of those tires. I have a Nitto Mud grapplers and I have never seen a set of 33's this tall. Love the taillights!
