am I the only one that had fan issues after installing a TT?
it just barely rubbed, but still, no one else?

Luckily i have done a few bl and mml, so i had all the drop brackets necessary to drop my radiator 1"

maybe i missed it in this thread, maybe i did something wrong, or maybe it's true..every jeep is different

Sure, but five minutes with a dremel to slot the bolt holes in the shroud and you can adjust it as necessary.

I removed the stock spacers on the stock skid for now with now issues but since this thread has been going on for a while, I was wondering if anyone with a LJ Rubicon had to do the BL, MML and SYE with the UnderCover Fab skid since it looks like this particular vehicle has a SYE in the rear and a DC in the front?? I tried reading through all 61 pages but was hoping to see if anyone is LJ Rubicon specific. Thanks! Your help is greatly appreciated.

here's the output of a TJ/LJ Rubicon NV241OR:



the front of the t-case is an example of a "fixed yoke" output. the rear t-case output is a "flange", not a "yoke". however, there is a part called the "flange yoke", which is part of the rear driveshaft itself, and bolts to the "flange".

I have a quick question about tummy tucks and the FRONT pinion angle. I know it's not as important as the rear but after installing my savvy modular with crossmember it seems the front is more extreme than I was expecting. Any suggestions?

Time to start looking for a high pinion front axle.

I can't just adjust it with the control arms?

You really can only adjust so far before it starts affecting your steering.

you have to make a compromise between pinion angle and caster.

x2...

The only other option is to cut the inner C's off and change the caster/pinion angle separation.
