4\" lift vibration problem solved

4" Rough Country lift on 86 CJ7, drive train vibration at 35 mph and up. Got two pieces of 2"X2" 1/4" thick stock 16" long. Drilled appropriate holes dropped cross mount and installed. Lookes pretty good almost like I knew what I'm doing! Whala! could'nt get reverse or second off comes the boot and the sawzall does some magic, boot on, test drive NO vibration..YEA! Simple low cost fix for drive shaft angle problems. May need to lengthen shift rod as it now has a bit of a farther throw. Yea I know patting my own back, but wife just gives me strange looks when I start my Jeepbabble.

People are more violently opposed to fur than leather... is it because it's
safer to harass rich women than bikers ? !!

Re: 4\" lift vibration problem solved

Are you saying you dropped the skid plate/tcase/trans. This is exactly what I've been preaching against, loss of ground clearance, especially for rock crawling. My Jeep isn't exactly real short, but I'm constantly hanging up the darn stock skidplate. I hope this is a temporary fix, get that skid plate up OUT of the way, heck, clock that tcase and get a flat skidplate (one of my planned projects). Can't have enough clearance. By drooping that skid plate you just negated that 4" lift, would have been easier to do a 2 1/2" suspension and a body lift. Sorry for ranting about a pet peeve of mine!

Re: 4\" lift vibration problem solved

I can see your point on dropping the cases down, but here in MN I live on the great flatland no hills no rocks. The local Jeepsters told me that was the way to go, sily me. Also no budget. With 32" tires The unit should perform as a ditch crawler, snow buster for hunting. BUT if I get hung up I'll know whos to blame. I'll start saving today! Would a CV jointed drive shaft be the answer? Thanks!
