I plan to lock the front with the Aussie! I haven't had the jeep long enough to drive threw snow. I reside in South Carolina York area and the snow isn't to bad. Maybe at most last year was 8 inches. This is going to be a slower then normal build because of money.

Lift came in today, going to install it when I get home. Christmas is coming up. Maybe I will get the Aussie for a present or have the funds saved up.

Lift is installed. 2" Rubicon Express without shocks. Still running my 31's. I didn't get vibrations, no steering problems or pulls to one side, and no death wobble.
Before,

After,


I like it. It feels just like when I bought it when it had the 2" body lift but I have clearance and no gap.

That would be the 3.55 and numerically higher carrier. The break is 3.31 and lower, 3.55 and higher.

There is no use in regearing for 31s. You should go to 33s before its worth the price to regear

Non jeep related. There was a stand off 500 feet from my office building. Someone was in a house and counted 11 police cars in front of the house, then heard from people down stairs there where 2 other squad cars behind our building set up to block the road. Exciting day! Me running from window to window keeping cover by the walls all the way to my co worker Matt in his office.

yes it will as long as you have the stock carrier and stock axle shafts(which im pretty sure you do)

You can get them from a few other places other than the aussie website. Also, look for one used. I got a great deal @ $100 for a used one off of craigslist a month ago.

I've been looking. And that's why I asked about the carrier issue, I'm not going to buy used even though it might be in perfect condition. I would like the 2 year warranty behind the Aussie.
