  • RE 4.5 Super Flex installed

    Started at 7:30 Am yesterday, and finished at 7:00 Pm. I found that the front drive shaft rubs on the oem tranny skid.. so I removed it. Didnt have time to install the CV or the front swaybar disco's (too tired and sore) so I went home for some sleep(30 mile drive from my buds house). It was kinda like those beds at cheap motels with the quarter massages....vibration city.
    Next day I went back and installed CV... at first when I opened the box I thought they sent me the wrong shaft. I didnt realise that the harmonic balancer had to come off. I installed it and the vibes are all gone now. Still haven't put on the swaybar disco's, the kit was missing the part that bolts to the front diff to attach the links. I called Chris @ 4wheel customs, he said he'd send them right out.
    I came real close to losing my life this morning when I went to the shop to get it aligned (the local good year shop), there was a real nice set of 15x8 teflon 5 on 4.5 coated alloys, with 33x12.50 MTR's already mounted and balanced... just begging to be put on my rubi, but then I remembered....even if I charged it I would only be postponing the linching till the Visa bill came in.

    Looks SWEET! If you use the "sized" tag instead of the "img" tag, your pics won't be so huge. I fixed it for you. Congrats on the lift!

              I have gone through 2 trans pans since I put my lift on. I had to take off that cross member also cause of rubbing. That pan hangs out in the danger zone. I would go and buy one to carry with you. They are $8. The expensive thing is the fluid. That was $60 or so.

              Your jeep rocks!!!!! I like the color a lot......
