I am glad you posted the pics. I have the 3.5 RE long arm with 33's and am planning to put some new springs bringing it up to 5 or so inches. Looks great by the way!

Yah, it was pushed back a little before... something about the Solid HD Rear Axle not really being setup for a TJ with Stock suspension... I did have the Adj Rear Trac Bar and the Adjust Control Arms installed, but it still pushed the Axle back a couple of inches before the lift...

Looks about right now... might be just the angle or whatever in the AFTER pic...

Well, I know this is sacrilege around here, but I had it done at a shop... after looking at everything, I knew that I was never going to get this thing installed myself... so I had a great shop here in town 4x4andMore (new JF Member) do the install... they had to do some custom fab stuff to get the rear Tri-Link Truss mounted on the Solid HD D44 Axle (since the housing isn't stock)...

I'll get some pics of the exhaust...

Not sacrilege at all, don't sweat it! It took me two weeks to do mine!!! Glad to see it all worked out. Once you get your rear drive shaft, I'm sure you'll be reporting that it drives awesome. Enjoy!!!

By the way, it'll be interesting to see how the exhaust was done. My exhaust guy had a wonderfull time with mine but it came out great. Nothing like a small shop where the owner cares about quality; which I was willing to pay for.

are you thinking of the track bar? the track bar DOES go away with a triangulated suspension.

Right... I got a basically new RE Adj Rear Trac Bar (and Adj Rear Upper control arms) sitting in the back of the Jeep that Is going to be up for sale here soon... I had to get it to install the new Rear Axle, about 400 miles ago, and so it saw 400 easy City (NO Offroad) miles before getting yanked to install this thing...

That looks amazing. Im looking to do this as soon as i get money but i have a question. What does the tri-link do and is it necessary? Im interested in the RE 4.5 extreme duty or the tri-link but i dont know what the tri-link would do for me.
