How do you think it would be with stock tranny mount and 2-2.5" of lift if I were to get that flat skid. Right now according to measurements from my stock '02 sahara to my lifted '02 sahara, I'm sitting at 1.5" of suspension lift right now but may add 1" coil spacers or go to some better 2.5 springs eventually. You think I would need the Low profile mount or would I be alright with stock mount for a while with out any vibes or problems?
And to start I'm going to install adjustable uppers and lowers in the rear until I save up for the front. And I'm going to order the Teraflex extreme short shaft SYE

Having a more shallow pinion angle will always be beneficial. If you can fit the LoPro mount, you should use it.

Anyone know the height of a stock skid from an '02 vs a skid advertised as ' 2" drop' or ' 3" drop'?
After adding up all the costs for a flat skid, super short SYE low pro mount, UCA's and all the other little odds and ends I realized it was more money than I'm able to do at this time so I'm hoping to get a skid that is at least smooth and flat on the bottom and just somewhat higher than stock without having to run the Low pro mount and without having to replace my transfer case shift bracket.
I'm thinking of getting the Barnes 2" drop or 3" drop depending on how much clearance each will gain?
( My jeep is 200 miles away at my parents house right now otherwise I would try to take some measurements myself but I can't for at least a week and I need to get my parts ordered soon to get it put back together soon.)
I ended up ordering a advance adapters regular SYE this morning since I found it for 139 shipped, and some adjustable rear uppers.

Here is a trick I used for a while until I could afford everything. It's an extra expense, but might save you money while you save money.

Buy the skid you want to eventually run, flat or 1" drop. Then buy a Tcase drop, or hockey pucks. I ran 3 per bolt between my frame and skid.

Check out that anti squat!

I'm working on my tummy tuck and will purchase a skid from friend pretty soon except he forgot the name of the skid. Here's a pic I was wondering if anyone could help identify it, didnt wanna start a thread just for this so I thought this would be the appropriate thread to do so. Thanks

Yeah he said the manufacture was out of buisness. I thought it was 33 engineering but I wasn't sure.
So you know it is?

Hey guys so I'm nearing my install of the collection of parts I have and was just wondering what values in the lengths of my upper control arms that I should expect. I have the savvy under armor paired with a 2" ome lift. I have metalcloak front and rear upper adjustables, but don't have the lowers, and will leave this stock until around christmas time. I've got a dvc shaft ready to go on as well, but was just hoping to see what sort of numbers you guys are getting? I've got an 05 lj rubicon btw. Thanks

I've read the first page and a few other pages trying to find the information I'm looking for.. certainly haven't read every page.

I've an '06 LJ Rubicon and I'm trying to decide between the Savvy Modular and UCF Deep-Cover System.

Edit: I found my answer here.. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/un...ystem-1250842/ sorry to bother
