hey all i have question
I put a 4'' rough cunt stiff ass lift in my jeep that already had a 3'' body lift
in it and in my opinion its not high enough and every one who looks at it
says '' no way thats a 4'' lift '' :( i guess its my bad for buyin the cheep lift
but my question is can i use shackels to lift in 1-2'' more inches with out
haveing to upgrade drive shaft angles ?
pic taken after lift with 31'' tires 4''susp+3''body=7''ya right[wtf]
get some more agresive looking tires. then it'll look mean.[cheers]

unlike the lift im not cheaping out on tires . doin it right wiff gears first
then tires cause i need to pull trailers and wiff 33'' or 35'' my stock 307 would
suck ass . never look as cool as a mog though

if your going to run 35s 33s even if your going to be towing or useing it i wouldnt wast you money on that pos d35 just get an 8.8 out of an explorer or some think like that much stronger just my tow cents

[cheers] okay,...here is a pic of my yj with the 4.5" rubicon installed in the front with the little tires on it (no body lift)
and with it all done with 33's (thanks for ahem,...cough cough..."helpin" me out Dean[cheers] )
lets throw my 33" tsl's on yers and see how it looks:D
i think u got the 2.5" kit [f].... long shackles will just fuck ur springs ....because u are pushing one side down father than the other end and the center point is still the same so ur spring will fatigue fast and then u will be closer to ur tires :( ... can u say it sucks and take it back to gemini... ? lol warrenty with loranne ...hahhahahhahahhahah .... good luck ...:D

i am sure big b is right..but for every inch u get a 1/2 of lifts..some people put bigger shackles some people dont...for many reasons bad approach angles and a bad pinion angle..just my 2 cents..
edited to insert poky guy above...
it has many downsides but it can be done ... u didn't sound like u where looking for tempary solutions .... u can shackle reverse the front and push the mounts down equal to ur extra long shakles and same in the rear but u don't have to swap ends ... if u can find 4 cyl diffs they are all 4:10s ... once again ...good luck...

like BIGB said looks like you got a 2.5" kit, no way would a 4" lift plus 3" bodly look that low. the people you got it from must have ordered the wrong kit.
my YJ with mix n match 4" lift and 2" body sits at a nice height but the leafs are crap and don't flex. i also have the cheap H bar shackles and i do not recomend them.

ya know on second thought when i did the install i had a bad vibraition
so i took it to nutbars shop and he said bad angle and pull rear spring shims.
so i did and it worked. gemini guy said never had to pull rear shims ever
