Will This Work On My YJ ???

OK

heres what i am thinking of doing

2" suspension lift for now (until i get the axles re setup for YJ width and such for the SOA)

1-2" body lift

and 31" tires

Will this work with the NP231 ok? Do i have to worry about the Slip Yoke if i only lift it 2"?

Are the Dana30 and 35c that bad that 31" might break em?

Thanks for any advice.

Re: Will This Work On My YJ ???

Mangler,
So that you can go out and wheel and not spend a bunch of cash, this is what I would suggest. You could use Rancho add-a-leafs and longer shackles. Or you could go to something like a 2 1/2" Procomp lift(you could even use the spring packs for the SOA later). The procomp are stiff enough and tough enough to work well on an SOA later. But the add-a-leafs would give you better flex with your current SUA. You should have no problems at all with your slip yoke, or either axle with that much lift and those tires. The D35 you have is the non C clip version which is the best version of the D35. You could even install a lunch box locker in the rear and maintaine reliability. My stock axles held up very well, through some tough conditions, for a couple of years with 33x10.50 swamper SX's. Even the rear pinion yoke holds up well with the 4.10 gears, and less than 35" tires(its notoriousely failure prone with the stock 3.07 gears and large tires). Steering will be fine also with that set up. Actualy the 4 cyl YJ(because of its lower gears)is pretty well ballanced all the way around to handle 31" to 33"(33" being the very upper limit)tires, all you need is the tire clearance.

>>>>>You could use Rancho add-a-leafs and longer shackles.
***** I have some custom YJ spring packs that i made for the CJ SOA that i might just do that with. Good Idea

>>>>>You should have no problems at all with your slip yoke, or either axle with that much lift and those tires.
***** Great. That is what i was hoping

The D35 you have is the non C clip version which is the best version of the D35.
***** REALLY?? How is this? I never heard of a NON C clip rear 35???

>>>>> You could even install a lunch box locker in the rear and maintaine reliability.
**** That would be a tad much. I have a set of 44's with 4:56's and detroit I will have in before mid summer

>>>>>My stock axles held up very well, through some tough conditions, for a couple of years with 33x10.50 swamper SX's.
***** Nice I have some 33" swampers I will use

>>>>>Steering will be fine also with that set up.
***** Should i not bother with a drop pitman arm??

>>>>> Actualy the 4 cyl YJ(because of its lower gears)is pretty well ballanced all the way around to handle 31" to 33"(33" being the very upper limit)tires, all you need is the tire clearance.
**** Nice. thanks for the info man. I am liking this new project more and more everyday

thanks a lot

Re: Will This Work On My YJ ???

Mangler,
You may or may not need a drop pitman arm, youll just have to look at it when its lifted. You will need one anyway when you go SOA, unless you plan on going to a High Knuckle steering set up. So if you are planning a high knuckle steering, then I would just try to get by without the drop pitman and save yourself about $50. But if you are gonna use a Z link type steering and will need the drop pitman anyway, then you might as well go ahead and do it.
As far as C clippless D35, yes they are out there and they are on the 89 YJs, The axle has an outer flange which bolts to the bearing and axle retainer, ergo no C clip. These axles will bring a little more money(or at least make it sellable at all),when it comes time to sell off the stock pieces.
You never answered one of previouse posts, if you want I can send you a K&N filter for your stock air box. Ill just toss it the mail if you want it. Let me know.

***** I already have the whole hi-steer setup on my front 44 on the CJ. I will be transfering all the Hi Steer over at some point but i think I will deal with a little bump steer for now

>>>>>You never answered one of previouse posts, if you want I can send you a K&N filter for your stock air box. Ill just toss it the mail if you want it. Let me know.
***** That would be great for now. Then when i get done with it (once i build my air tube setup), I will do as you did and pass it on to another Jeeper in need.

Thanks Jeff
