O.k. after Christmas I am planning on the following:
4" Trailmaster lift
315/75/16 Goodyear MT/R's (35x12.5)
16x10 Rockcrawlers

Is there anything else I will need? Extended brake lines? shafts? etc...

Also will I wear out U-joints faster then usuall? Its a 2001 so I don't want to destroy anything to fast.

Any info is much appriciated.

I went up only 5.5" of lift and I have to replace the front driveshaft. I have the "spicer" model driveshaft, I need a "built" saginaw style that has higher angle u-joints, and some fabricating done to the "H" yoke.
But, this will only set me back in the $150-$200 range! <IMG SRC="/board/images/smilies/icon_smile.gif">

You'll be fine, any higher and you probably would need some new brakelines but you should be fine. Those Goodyear MTR's cost a pretty penny but I hear they are a sweet tire.

John-

I hear this guy makes some kick-ass shafts. http://www.highangledriveline.com/ His name is Jess and he builds shafts for ARCA, CalROCs, Warn, etc competitions.
