Brandon, it does have a small 1/2" to 5/8" rake from back to front which I can live with. I will see how much more room I will need with the new sneakers when I get them. If I need more I will get the Up Country coils for it and that will be the true test to see if my old coils are sacked or not.
So a quick update. Since I put the 2" BB in I have experienced death wobble more times than enough. I took it to get aligned and I did have some small play in one tierod so I changed them all out. I have new track bar bushings pressed in and tightened down. I have no steering box slop, but still have death wobble. I see that the caster went from 7 degrees to 4.5 degrees with the lift in it. I took the lift out and no death wobble. I don't have any adjustments on the lower front control arms for caster (no cam bolts). I decided to order a set of adjustable lower control arms to see if I can get the caster back between 6 - 8 degrees as it is set by factory.
I will have to wait to see what the arms do to help. Hopefully they correct the issue. I have talked to may mechanics, alignment techs, RC and they all seem to point me towards caster, since this is the only angle that changes with a small 2" BB.
also got my CB installed the other day. Fits just nice in the small pocket in the dash.
Also mounted the antenna on the roof rack and just screw the antenna in when needed. Had to run a ground cable to it so that it was properly grounded. Tested and all works well. I have not tested for distance yet but with it mounted high I should have some distance.
I also took some time the last time I had the lift kit installed to see where I need to trim my bumpers and fenders. I got most of the front bumper trimmed, but I may cut out mor once I pickup the body saw to cut the fenders out more lol!
this is with no trimming with 255/75 R17's
fog light getting ready to be cut out...
also had to remove the washer bottle and I purchased a ZJ bottle that I need to fit under the hood as soon as my K&N filter arrives so I can also remove the big stock airbox to make room.

Nope, left the RC 2.0 shocks on since they are a 0-3" lift shock. Talking to a few older alignment technicians and they said that this was the same problem that the early 2000 dodges 1/2 tons had. everyone was putting in a 1 3/4" leveling kit in the front and getting death wobble. The dodge's though had caster adjustment (Cam Bolts) for the control arms, I was told.
I know if I put in the BB, the steering wheel feels extremely light and super easy to turn, almost like you have a huge load in the back of a pickup truck and no weight on the front end. Every little bump or expansion joint will cause death wobble over 60Km/h.
Take the lift out and the steering is heavier but way more stable.
I got a K&N filter to try... Needed to make room to add the XJ washer bottle. All fitted in nice and cozy. Replaced the XJ pumps and sensor with my WJ ones. Fit perfect and everything is hooked back up and working fine.
