Re: Clearance problem with 5.5\" Rubicon Kit
my wifes jeep with the RE 4.5" kit has the same problem with the stock crossmember when the jeep is on a lift(frame lift). it never touches while wheeling though...truth is.. if both front tires are off the ground, a little driveshaft rubbing isnt going to do much.
I have the long arm kit on my tj, and the rear flexes almost infinately.. I have limiting straps in the rear to keep the tires out of the fenders.
the front on my RE long arm skidpan has a channel in it... sounds like a job for the cutting torch to me....
be thankfull you dont have the early long arm kit... the center doesnt unbolt and you have to just about remove both axles to work on any drivetrain parts. my jeep actually has the prototype/ very first RE long arm kit..
