Are you bored.....post count quota for today not met? So far nothing you have said has anything to do with this topic or my question. 3" Bl looks like booty! It's not just about the look I'm just not one of those people that see the point in throwing the largest tire under my rig I can then bumpstopping out all the travel. That's just my opinion and since it's my rig I get to apply that opinion to it.

Silver03rubicon didn't need this lift....he has 30.5's but see how nice his rig flexes out with plenty of room to move, that's my point.

Please lord let me back on topic.....

Just trying to find out if a similarly equipted 03-06 (Non Rubi) TJ's with BL MML D44 & 6-speed...any vibes with this lift?

Jeffrey at RC sent me the 2.2 Steering Stabilizer with my order of the 2.5" SL and 1.25" BL. He cut me the JF.com discount and shipped it all for $410. My stock stabilizer was hell to get off and I ended up snapping one of the bolts on it when I took it off.

Don't feel bad mine was the same way. Even with pb blaster that fugger was hell. Good thing they provided all new hardware Also don't be like me and forget to put the metal sleeve in the end of the bushing

Hey guys, kinda new here, but I've been reading up on here for months, everyone else asks and answers my questions...just wanted to put in some info on this one... I finally gave in and got the kit for my 04. I got the 1.25 body lift, 2.5" suspension, and the 2.2 stabilizer. Havent been offroading with it yet though so Iunno how good it works...so far everything was smooth sailling on the lift and is riding great!!

One of us is clearly reading this wrong.

That would have put him at 2-2.5 inches of space tire to flare if the lift wasn't on there, which when you are measuring to 1.5 year old 33"s, that sounds like it would be just about right to me.

I'll just assume I'm not quite picturing it correctly and call it a day, lol.

That's the rear tire... you should have said that part.

Edit: Just went out and tossed a tape measurer on my rear tire, and I have about 7 3/4" of clearance. No pics, but yeah... I thought you were talking about the front tire. Lol. Much more believable on the back.

Looking at the Transfer Case Drop Instructions (photo #2 in particular) in the link provided by easytim, is it at all possible not to use those pucks? It looks like the transmission skid plate is pretty much dropped down to where it was before the lift. I can appreciate that the transmission is attached to the drivetrain and the drivetrain didn't move, because it's below the lift, but I was just wondering...

Dude, WTF - really don't care what your problem is with the original statement as it was posted , I am looking to do something with my 01 DD. And was courious as to clearance on the RC lift. And could care even less what your non RC lift is at . But to satisfy your recent whine, here ya go.

Sorry to have bunched up your e-panties... I was just trying to offer some money-saving advice since it's pretty obvious you don't understand suspension dynamics very well. Happy trails to you, buddy.

Stfu, and relax. You are way to defensive over nothing. I'm not whining, I'm telling you I can now see what you meant. Get your ego out of your ***.
