Default Replacement YETI WJ



Old yeti and new

So, as some of you may be aware, I have a few jeeps, one is my 99 wj, lifted 3" with a stroker 4.6, 50k on the engine.. 250k on the body. Well it shows and the jeep has major subframe rot in the rear so she had to be put out to pasture. Anywho, I got a replacement for a grand, that's fully loaded. 155k on the body, spun bearing in the engine. Has a 2" Puck lift.
Question I have is , is it a bad idea to join the lifts together and get myself roughly 5" of lift?

I like the way the first Yeti sits. I would leave #2 the same way and not go 5".

Thought about just leaving it as is, but also kinda have the viewpoint that for off roading, taller is better. Just not sure on combining pucks and spring lift together, and the actual durability of that combination. #1 is getting cut in half and turned into a jeep trailer so retaining a lift in the rear of that would be nice but I just don't know. But then again I'm not even positive that yeti 2 is only a 2" it may be 3" at this currently time they look to sit at the same height. Maybe is just the ground they're on tho.

Just keep in mind, going from a 3" to a 5" lift, there are going to be a lot more little things involved. Do you already have longer shocks, brake lines, adjustable arms, adjustable track bar and so on all made for the 5" height?

If you are going to 5" you should not do it with short arms. Get some long arms for it. Not so bad in the back, but the front will be very harsh when you hit anything bigger than a tar strip

Lol okay and as of now it has IROR rear adjustable control arms in it and I figured I'd need longer shocks, (buddy did the same lift on his wj with 3" shocks and ate the bushings all to hell, as well as running stock control arms all the way around.) Yeti 1 still has stock fronts and the other jeep has stocks all the way around.

It's easy to say, why can't I just add them together. But sooner or later, it starts getting expensive

True, especially when you're putting random things together that weren't made for each other.

So another random question, my 4.6 stroker is running like *** and I can't figure out why. Changed plugs, cam sensor, coils, still runs horrible. Pops, farts and doesn't want to run for **** when you're trying to move.. injectors are out of a taurus...don't know if they're plugged up due to the 4000 watt amp and 4 12inch subs rattling everything or if it's another issue?? Help plz

It's got a coil pack and cam sensor. Tried turning the gear 180 and rotating the sensor while running. Idk, still only barely runs and runs like **** the whole time

Fuel filter?? Tech at Chrysler was saying it may be lack of fuel pressure...maybe the filter is partially plugged
