Thanks, the last picture really captures how much of a difference the lift and tired made. It's looking like the next step will have to be some trimming in the rear as well as some different bumpers before it sees much off-road use. Surprisingly though, the 37s seem to clear the rock rail just fine in the rear.

Picked the jeep up from Driveline on Friday. It now has a sleeved and gusseted front axle, chromo shafts front and rear, some HD diff covers, and 4.88s to get the power back up to a tolerable level. If you're looking for a place to do a re-gear on your jeep, or anything else driveline related for that matter, the guys at Driveline Service do excellent work.

I'll second that. They installed 4.88s and an e-locker 2 weeks ago. Craig's a great guy and does great work.

It's been a while since my last update. So long, actually, that my build is pretty much finished up. Since the regear, the jeep has received front/rear Full Metal Fabworks steel bumpers with black powder coat, a 9,500 lb. smittybuilt xrc gen2 winch with synthetic line, a synergy tie Rod, a rough country dual steering stabilizer setup, an air compressor, an AEV heat reduction hood, a Tactik hinge tire carrier, Bushwacker flat fenders, a pretty cool custom front driveshaft from driveline service, and a soft top. I currently have a synergy front track bar relocation bracket that will be installed as soon as I pull the trigger on the synergy drag link & flip kit. If anyone is on the fence about which lift to buy, I can't say enough good things about Rock Krawler. I haven't heard a single squeak, rattle, or pop on road, off road, or otherwise.
