Default Hack n Tap install help

Hey everyone,

I'm looking to purchase the IRO hack n tap for my late 96 xj. I have a 2 inch life and some intermittent vibes from it. I don't have an angle grinder or the work space to Do it myself. Wondering if anyone in the Auburn Wa area with some experience installing these would be willing to help out. No idea how much someone would charge for this. Please let me know.

What kind of 2 inch lift was installed? Typically after a lift the rear ujoints tent to go out. So I would replace those first.

If you have a 2 inch shackle lift you don't need a hack in tap. Just order some 2-4 degree axle shims to correct your pinion angle.

You can download an app and use your phone to check pinion angle.

I'm in the puyallup area if you need any further help pm me for my phone number. With the advise above though you should be able to fix you vibes.
