NOw that is one hell of a writeup!!
Great work!!

Cheers,

Great write up as usual, but why so much lift for 35s? Are you planning on larger tires?

wayoflife 05-17-2006 09:02 AM

thanks guys :o i'd like to move up to 37's some day but i just bought my 35's a couple of months ago and will most likely have to stick with them for a while. :rolleyes: :D

good write up, just wondering if any of the bolts that hold the transfer case skid stripped the little inserts out on the support brackets, i had to beat all of them out of mine cause 3 stripped when i had to take the skid plate off a week later

I've been checking your page frequently to see when the write-up was done, read the whole thing today. Like your other write-up's, very well done.

That kit looks very complete, and I really like the skid and all the brackets and hardware look very strong. After seeing your pics testing it at MOAB, it looks like it works well too.

Finally! ive been waiting to read this ever since i saw that you had lifted the ride

JeepCreepn01 05-18-2006 06:23 AM

funny you should mention that. i did end up stripping one when i pulled my skid about a week later too. fortunately, i was able to get a pair of small vice-grips to grab hold of it and was able to extract the bolt without further incident. now, i try to be mindfull about over tightening the bolts and haven't had a problem since. i think i may try talking to full traction about this to see what they have to say.
