Lifting the TJ 2-3"

Ok so here's the deal. I have settled on getting the OME 2" lift, 3/4" Teraflex Coil spring spacers, Tereflex disconnects, and a 1" body lift. I do believe that this configuration eliminates the need for a SYE and rear shaft. Also the quality of the street ride will not be compromised. I have a 03' TJ Sport w/D44 and 3.73's in the rear, 5 speed. I plan on running 32X11.5 Bridgestone Duler MT's. So let me have it. What do you all think. No lockers yet, this is a start. I didn't want to go any bigger for street reasons and let's face it, this is my daily driver. I know the MT's aren't the best street time but they got good reviews even better than Goodyears MTR's. Thanks all

It is a good start, 33's should even fit. But the driveline vibe may (probably will) be there. The 44 rear has more problems with vibes than the 35. A t-case drop and/ or MM lift might take care of it though If not enough cash for a SYE.

I know a guy that has the OME 2" and a 1/2" BL and he runs 33's. You could easily run 33's with yer setup. Now, he is runnin the skinny 33's but he has no problem handling the toughest trails. Of course, this is with ARB's front and rear. As for the driveshaft issue you might want to go with a 1" MML just to be safe. HTH

Do the MML before the TC will get much needed clearence, it will go with the 1" BL cleaner and you wont have to deal with any shifter brackets. The MML should help the driveline angle, so no vibes with that lift......great choise btw! The OME w/tera spacers shouldnt cause any vibes anyway. Dont lower the Tcase unless all else fails.
