Default Nth Degree lift for Hemi TJ

I spoke with the new owners of Nth Degree today. We are talking about sending my Hemi TJ to them so they can design a hemi/545 compatible lift kit.

More info to come as available.

I'm confused, the only thing different would be the trans mount and an engine skid. Lift should be the same... They should already have all the engineering done for that...

Do you mean a Hemi/545 compatible transmission and oil pan skid? I read Nth made this on a special order basis and the buyer had to weld it themselves.

I ask because I have the same engine trans combo with nothing special in terms of the suspension, just the standard OME lift - it fits fine.

My Brute (Brutal) is running a HEMI and the AEV/Nth Degree tummy tuck skid so it should work already. It did for us.

Ben, I've searched for more info on this as I want to run a TT and stinger with my TJ. Did you use the supplied trans mount(s)?

Yes, we use the Automatic mount with just a little trimming. I think we upgraded the transmount to the urethan version.

Default thanks folks

Thanks folks for the feedback. I spoke with the new owners (not original designers) of Nth and they lead me to believe that the std kit for the auto trans will not work.

Would like to talk with one of you that have actually installed one. Ben, open to a chat?

Justin, yes we can chat later and for your review. Here is another Brute that I believe used the Nth degree skid and a Hemi. This thread has some good photos too.
