does it come with good instructions? pics and all. Im not sure what to remove. I see a cross bar but would not think you should take that off.


OK, then...the hood is not supposed to flop up and down??

Dang, all this time and I thought it was the famous Jeep Wave!! ~bluegrassguitar

4 door here with 4 inch no rub at full articulation, I cant see a 2 inch rip the boot

The included instructions were OK, but this write-up is what I kept referring back to:
Rockhard Oilpan/Combo Skid

There is more than one rub issue with the JK front driveshaft. The one that commonly rips the boot is the transmission oil pan. There is a spot that sticks out of the pan and aluminum flange that it attaches to that grabs the boot and the band that holds it on. There is also an issue with the trans skid plate but my 2.5" lift isn't enough to cause trouble. The last is the exhaust pipe. Again, with the exhaust, you'll likely never see a problem until the lift is way more than 2".

I guess I will just have to try it out and see what happens. If it rips then I will know. lol

I suspect that you'll be fine....especially with no adjustments to the trackbar.

I have been running a Zone 3in for a year and have had no problems with the stock drive shafts in my 2 door auto. And it has seen some tough trails that fully flexed out the suspension. If the boot gets torn then I will worry about replacements.
