dla, Thanks for sharing your thread. Your daughter is lucky to have a dad like you. She looks pretty happy installing the lift. After what I have read about the BDS, I'm sure its the way I will go. I will have to wait till mid winter but thats fine. I'm in a 98 wrangler, what is the part #? Thanks again. Jake

Needless to say, she's really stoked!



Man her jeep looks awesome!! I am working the same thing for my daughter and her white jeep right now. What all lift(s) do you have on her jeep, 2" BDS, 1 1/2 BL and 3/4 front spacers??? Is that correct??

Thanks! She loves it!

There is no body lift... only 2" BDS with 3/4" spacers on the front. Also installed the front cam bolts and JKS adjustable track bars front and rear.

You and your daughter will have fun with the install, I know we did!

No vibes with the slip yoke after the 2 inch lift? Youre a lucky Jeeper! Very nice.

After the lift the axles were off center by 1" in the rear and 3/4" front.

We did have a bit of a shudder right at take off that was cured with 5/8" of washers to drop the skid. Going to be adding a MML so we can loose the washers.

Would the trackbar relocation bracket not remedy this problem and center the axle again??? I have one coming for when we do the lift on my daughters and was hoping that will be all that I need.

The bracket will work on the rear but they don't make one for the front.

Yes, the bracket will be fine... I just decided to go with the adjustable instead.
