You're gonna have more felt engine vibration at idle with it due to the harder rubber bushings used in the cross member. If the T-case was contacting the body you'd hear the knocking. My jeep feels like a diesel at idle but once gas is applied the vibration is gone and it drives smooth.

The Jeep looks good too btw.

35s got me up at night

Thanks. Iím going to try and loosen the trans mount bolts a touch and see if that relieves some of the vibrations.

Turns out my fan is now wedged in my fam shroud. Didnít notice on the moving shake down runs.

I had this problem as well. I ended up cutting the bottom out of the ran shroud first time. Then when I replaced my water pump I ordered a mew fan shroud too and drilled new holes in it 1in offset to lower the shroud. This fixed the rubbing problem and looked better too. Cutting the bottom of the shroud did not have any impact on cooling performance.

I've been driving the Jeep now a few weeks now. I still have a seat of the pants minor vibration at speeds and it's RPM related not drive train related. It also seems like I can hear the clutch and transmission inside the cab even with the top and doors off. A little annoying but fine as long as nothing is wrong.

Ordering wheel spacers today. One step at a time...
