    Default Lifting the Jeep

    Well I happened across some money when some crazy lady smoked my Jeep. Her insurance gave me money to replace the suspension stuff and fender she screwed up. But instead of replacing it with stock stuff, Im gonna lift it and put some big tires on it. I ordered my wheels already. I got these.

    http://www.summitracing.com/parts/CRR-3975812/

    Ill be ordering my suspension lift tomorrow. Just making sure its the one I want to go with. Im 99% sure Ill end up going with this one.

    http://www.rubiconexpress.com/Suspen...px?part=RE5515

    Ive already done a SYE (slip yoke eliminator) and I got a Tom Woods CV driveshaft. So no need to do that.

    And these are the tires Im going with.

    BFGoodrich KM2s in 35x12.5R15
    http://www.bfgoodrichtires.com/tire-...t-a-km2-tires?

    Im gonna have to do all the work myself, and Ill probably end up having to put a little of my own money in it, but its gonna end up awesome. Then once I get my tax return, Ill paint it.

    Your lift is only 4"... that's going to be stupid with 35s. I wouldn't say it won't work, but it's going to be stupid.

    Its going to be 5 inches. 4" leaf springs, 1" shackle lift. Plus Im putting flat fenders on the front and TJ fender flares on the back for more clearance. It will look fine.

    Heres one with about the same amount of lift and 35s. Its got like 1/4 inch more lift than mine will have.

    4 inch backspacing on the wheels bruh. Plus steering limiters.

    And I dont expect it to turn on a dime. 3 point turns will be used.

    Those Jeeps are the best in the summer. Especially if you live somewhere where it's warm all the time.

    I love the black wheels. That thing is going to look totally different with the lift and bigger meats.

    I live in central Louisiana. So its usually warm. We have like 3-4 month period every year where Ill have to keep the top on and use the heater, but besides that, Ill be topless. I need to get a bikini top so I dont have to worry about the rain so much.

    Well I planned on starting today, but when I got home from work, my roommate said my car was pouring water. I look under it, and its a fucking waterfall.

    So I let it cool, then fill it up and start looking for leaks. No water leaking anywhere. WTF. im pretty sure my radiator is fucked though. Crazy thing is it didnt start leaking till I pulled into the driveway. No water on the road at all.

    It is a mystery.

    Was it bubbling out of the overflow? Maybe it was overheating. Is this the Stang you're talking about?

    Yea, the stang. I dont know where it was coming from. But it must have done it before because there is a bunch of residue all over that looks like its from antifreeze.

    I think it may be a crack that only opens enough to leak when its hot.

    If you ran Dexcool you'd find out right away thanks to the rust colored shit it's made with. My Camaro was overheating because the aftermarket efans weren't coming on. The boiled coolant would come out of the overflow.

    Also, when i replaced my radiator exploded and I had to replace it with an aluminum Summit 4 core, it looked like a shotgun blast of diarrhea in my engine bay. Fortunately the gel coat was still on under the hood so that wiped right off.

    I think you're right, though. Top it off, get it hot, and look for leaks.

    Well I finally have a weekend off. So we are putting it all together this weekend. Tonight we got everything on the front off, put the brake line extensions and shackles on. All we have left is the drop pitmman arm, leafs, and shocks, then on too the back. Should be done tomorrow. The back wont be nearly as hard as the front was.

    Finished the front yesterday. I hit a snag on the rear, and Im trying to figure out how to get the axle lined up on the centering pins when I have the shims on it. There isnt enough of the center pin sticking out to get the axle lined up on it right.

    This is what it looked like this morning.

    DONE

    Me and two friends started Friday night at about 8. Worked till 2AM. Then Saturday it was just me and one friend and we started around 2 and stopped around 1 AM. Then today we started around 1:30 and I just finished. I was by myself once I got the leafs on. My buddy had to go home cause he has work at 4AM.

    And here it is, after about 29 hours and 3 cases of Budweiser.





    Ill get some more pics tomorrow after I get out of class and work.

    The lift is a Rubicon Express 4 in lift with some 1 in boom shackles for a total of 5 inches. The tires are 35x12.50R15 BFGoodrich KM2s. It measures 26.5 inches from the ground to the bottom of the rocker panel. It actually came out bigger than I thought it would. But Im not complaining. lol

    Yea, I like it. I still need to put the drop pitman arm on. It has terrible bump steer. My buddy is bringing his pitman arm puller when he comes later this week.

    And I need to get bigger shims on the rear axle. The 4* ones dont point the pinion up enough and Im getting a slight driveline vibration.

    Stupid question, but are you also going to get the tires aligned? That's kind of a general rule of thumb when you lift/slam stuff, isn't it?
