Has anyone put the superlift 5 inch lift on without problems with the drive angles or shaft lengths?

I'm interested in this kit, but it doesn't come with a transfercase drop or anything

Shouldn't need a transfer case drop. I think that it comes with a spacer for the front driveshaft but you might have to shim the rear axle. Man you sure are indecisive!

I know man! lol

Anyway my plan is to have 5-6 inches of lift and to run Dunlop Mud rover 35x12.50x15 . I have been looking at their specs on sites and found out their actual diameter is only 34 inches. I would do only a 4 inch suspension but i want to make totally sure I have plenty of room.

Last night I made my mind up to go with 33's and use a 4 inch kit until i found out the Mud rovers we're really only 34's, and the 33's we're really only 32's

The thing I don't like with the 5-6 inch kits is they don't come with shocks or any method of steering correction so I would have to buy all that seperate. I wish there was a 5 or 6 inch kit that did it all :p

You should be able to buy a 6 inch skyjacker kit that comes with everything if I"m not mistaken. I think that you'd be just as well off going with a 4 inch kit and just putting on a 3 inch body lift. Then you'll have plenty of room for the 35's and will have saved money compared to a 6 inch kit because you don't need to buy new brake lines, no new driveshafts.Just about all the kits for 4 inch are pretty complete - steering which isn't a big deal to find on your own. Neither are shocks really. I bought my shocks from JCW for $30 a piece, they're hecklethorn shocks.

You know what man, i think I'll do that. Even if i have to buy the borgeson shaft it will help because my steering is so shitty.

Once my motor is done being rebuild (monday) I'll finally be able to order it! How long does rockymountains shipping usually take?

Don't worry about the actual tire size. They are rarely what the sidewalls say they are.

I know you made your mind up already but i see you were really looking for a 6" lift... well go to jackit.com and they sale a system with everything you need from the brakelines to steering correction, so you wont have to buy anything seperate...

Don't forget steering dampers. Rough Country makes a nice dual opposed kit. I've had mine in service for three years now- no problems.
