Newbie Rubi Build -- Currie JJ Lift with AEV 3" Springs

The patient.


The new tires are already on. 255/85/16 Maxxis Bighorns. I really wanted the Toyos, but they're unavailable and I didn't feel like waiting.

The parts. Did I miss anything?


Fun starts tomorrow AM. Stick around, I'm likely to have a LOT of questions.

Looks good, is that an Antirock at the top?

Thanks guys. Those would be the Rancho RS9000XL 9-way adjustables.

Yeah, it is. I haven't fully unpacked it yet because I'm not sure if I'm gonna use it. I may sell it and go with something else.

Holy geez man. That is one heck of a kit. I'm not sure there is anything they didn't think about with that kit. I hope that is the one and only kit you will be putting on that Jeep. I couldn't imagine ever replacing all of those parts....I'm just not sure you would get any better.

Haha, thanks. That's not all one kit, BTW. It's the basic Currie 4" lift with Antirock as the base. Then I added rear adjustable trackbar, heavy duty steering, mini-skids, front housing JJ upgrades, Rancho steering Stabilizer and RS9000XL shocks, and of course the AEV springs.

That is a VERY nice kit! I will be very interested to see how you like the Ranchos That was the other choice I was looking at but went with the OME instead. And you went with the JJ on the upper axle side as well. If I had any ability there, I would have attempted it. Maybe some other time. I LOVE the ride though, I can't imagine you will be disappointed.

I really like mine, especially when I watch guys with Quick Disco's trying to get them back in with pry bars and hammers I was thinking about a dual rate like the Swayloc but will wait to see what Savvy comes out with, since the Swayloc is based on Mr. Blaine's design.

Thanks! Concerning the JJ axle housing kit -- ha, what abilities? I'm just gonna wing it and see what I can do. It just seems prudent to take care of it while the patient is open on the table. I can probably handle the cutting and grinding and stuff, and I'll grovel around town to see if I can find somebody to haul a MIG over to my house to fry it up.

My what?

Ha, kidding. I took some advice I read in this forum, and so I'm working with a local driveline guy who's gonna work me up a price. Thinking of going with a 1350 double cardan setup if he can do it reasonably. I hope I'm not making a mistake by not simply going with a Tom Woods or Reel, but it would be nice to get to know the local guy. I went out and visited his shop and was really impressed.

He shares the building with some old crusty dude who I may have install 5.13's for me. He's never done a Dana 44 airlocker before, so I'll have to keep my fingers crossed.

Subscribed! I want to see how much lift you yield with those springs. Be sure to get good before and after measurements. No BL, right?

What kind of extra weight are you packing? I see the winch. Does that roof rack weigh much? Also, are you running a rear tire carrier/HD bumper? I can't tell for sure from the pic, but I think I see the milk jugs on the back...
