    Default Kevo's 04 Rubicon

    I don't have any pictures right now but I will shortly. Can't add pics at work. Right now I am just basically just tearing the axles down to see what the previous owner did.
    2004 Rubicon, stock axles and ratios, 4 in suspension lift (guess) and 2 in Body lift. 35" MT BAJA MTZs. Poison spyder rear wrap around armor, rock sliders, and front tube fenders.
    Here is just a basic starting point picture as I got it from the lot.

    That does look like a very nice start... I wish I could have found something like that to start with... maybe my next Jeep will start off like yours... since my next Jeep purchase as of right now will most likely be a Rubi...

    ^^^^^

    Rough Country 4'' suspension kit.

    Link to it.....

    Also you have a 1'' or 1.25'' body lift...If you take pictures of the body bushings I'll let you know what it is also.

    Also a picture of your rear upper control arms and a pic of where the tcase skid bolts to the frame...hopefully the PO wasn't dumb enough to use the tcase drop.

    All stock upper control arms. Front and rear. .....with a 4'' lift the rear uppers need to be adjustable so to correctly set the pinion angle.

    He did not install the tcase drop.

    And 1'' Body lift ...the stock bushings are 1'' tall...add 1''....you have a 1'' bl.

    That is a HORRIBLE pinion angle.

    I can't post your picture but the picture you have of your rear driveshaft and the angle it is at....
