I have a 1.25" BL. No MML. 3.25" SL (that's sagged to ~2")

04 Rubicon.

If I get the ultra high clearance skid, will I need to purchase a CV drive shaft as well? I realize all Jeeps are different, but it would be nice to know prior to ordering.

Thanks
It is a Rubi with a fixed output yoke, doesn't it come with a double Cardan rear driveshaft?

No. Even though the t-case is a fixed yoke, the DS from the factory is just a regular old DS with a single u-joint at each end.

No, it's a standard single joint shaft.

To answer your question, yes, you would need to get a double cardan shaft and adjustable uppers at a minimum to tilt the pinion up.

Hmm, never knew that, just figured all the Rubi's came with a Cv driveshaft.

Guess it makes sense in retrospect, since the CA's are the same as the Sport and X models, and the axles don't have the brackets aligned differently AFAIK.

Just never thought about it.

Thanks.


Ultimate goal is to remove the godawful transfer case drop (1" "pucks").

Am going to install a 1" MML. Check driveshaft angle and determine if I need to install washers.

I'd also like to put in a 4" spring up front to remove rake.

I'm hoping to do this all at once (including put in the UCF skid). Looks like I'll need a CV shaft and adjustable rear uppers too.

why can't anything just be simple?

Giving Savvy some great competition. This looks like an awesome product.

I have the 1/4 inch aluminum transfer case skid with Skid Row engine skid and it is TOUGH! I beat it hard over the 4th of July and it took anything that i could throw at it. Highly recommended.

Good to know.


I've got to start getting parts together.

Anybody know if the 3/8" skid is a worthwhile purchase or would 1/4" suffice for moderate wheeling (trails, some mild rocks)?

I reduced the price of the the Deep-Cover System by 5%.

Attached you will see the cost of the system optioned all the way out with a 3/8" thick 6061-T651 aluminum transfer case skid, 1/4" thick 6061-T651 aluminum engine skid, LOPRO mount, 1" body lift and MML.

You can save an additional 10% with the "jeepforum.com" discount code. That brings the total cost of this system optioned all the way out to just $859.

Thanks,

It will work with other skids that are shaped similarly to the factory skid or my skids. I'm not familiar with their product. Send me a picture at: matt@undercoverfab.com and I will take a look.

Thanks,
