I recently took my jeep up to Crab Tree Falls which are some trails near my house. I noticed even w/ my lift I was still quite frequently on 2 or 3 wheels because I kept maxing out my Jeep's articulation. I don't want to put lifting shackles on because I don't have the money for an SYE/CV driveline set up. But will some 0" lift greasable shackles help? I was also thinking I should get some sway bar disconnect links. Does anybody else have any good suggestions on how I could get more flex out of my YJ.
Thanks

Boomerangs will add about 1 3/4" of lift and wil help the springs out quite a bit. I have ran Currie Towbars up front and Boomerangs in the rear for three years now with no need for any SYE/CV driveline changes. They are greasable. Have fun getting the rear stock shackles off. Mr. Green

Disconnect your front swaybar.

More info needed:
What type of lift? (If it is a ProComp it will not flex)
What is limiting your flex? Shocks, bump stops, springs, brake lines, track bar, sway bar. etc?
You need to jack up your vehicle, then put a floor jack under a tire. (BLOCK YOUR JEEP) Shocked
As you jack it up, look closely at what is stopping the flex.

What DesertYJ said. Toss the trackbars, check the rear shackles to make sure they don't hit anything at full flex. If you never have more than 1 passenger toss the swaybar, otherwise disconnect it. Rather than use jacks I drove my Jeep diagonally into ditches or against abrupt banks, frontend first, then rearend first. That way I could get more weight on the corners.
