    Lift and transmission/cross member solutions

    Finally got the 4" superlift kit onto the LJ. We did put the drop spacer on the transfer case crossmember but really don't think its necessary on the LJ. And then just put the stock auto transmission skid with a couple of leftover spacers on it to drop it slightly just for a quick solution.

    What else is everyone running on lifted LJ's?

    Appears no matter what brand you get for a full crossmember/transmission skid, you have run a 1" motor mount and body mounts.

    The Savvy ones looks pretty slick.

    Re: Lift and transmission/cross member solutions

    I am running the clayton 2 piece transmiss/transfercase skid. It is pure beef but I would like to change it one day (paid for by the PO). I think it drops about 2" below the bottom of the frame rails. I do like it a lot, but do not like how heavy it is. The skid part has to be 60 lb and the frame attachment is probally 20-30, just guessing.

    I like the savvy entry to the market but I do not know if people actually like it because of the quality or because it is pretty.

    I also like the UCF set up too. It looks like the clayton system I have, but lighter and higher up to allow more clearance.

    If/when I redo mine, I would like to use the add a universal cross member type kits (genright) and get my underneath up higher, so that I can run a flat or close to flat skid.

    Re: Lift and transmission/cross member solutions

    I don't run any drop on the tcase (stock) with my Black Diamond lift. I'd love to do a motor mount lift/tummy tuck of some form. That would be about the last substantial mod other than HD steering.

    Savvy would be awfully high on the list for sure.

    I understand. I want there gts. I have the currie corectlyne (sp) steering and have not complained about steering since. I even run it without a stabilizer or assist.

    The Currie steering setup does seem like the way to go.
