What needs to be done to my 04

So i baught an 04, I've ridden my 97 with a 4 inch lift and 33's. I've never done anything mechanical with in the engine.


I now have a 04 lifted
I have a 2 inch body, and 35x 12.5's in the garage waiting to be installed.
im not asking whats needed lift wise, thats obvious. I'm asking what's needed to be done that you cant see..
So far i know i'm more then likely needed to regear from stock gearing to 4.88?


What is recommended or most def needed to be done to do light- medium offroading, mudding and hill climbing.

Im a total noob to engine related things...
Thanks alot

Yeah, that looks like superlift. You could easily clear 35s if you got rid of the bushwacker flares for some stockers. I pm'd you back, just cut the BL down to 1 inch and run that.

Where in rockville are you? I think I've seen your Jeep around.

SYE= slip yoke eliminator...replaces stock slip yoke with a fixed yoke for a double cardan shaft. CV shaft=Double cardan shaft, Chromolly axles are just alloy beefier versions of the stock axle shafts. Adj UCAs are just adjustable upper control arms, needed to properly dial in your rear pinion angle for the SYE and CV.
