Just say NO to Rough Country! What ever you do, do it right the first time and you will save money in the long run. My first mod was onboard air, then came the lift and tires. I wheeled it a bunch before it was lifted and had a lot of fun. Go enjoy it and save money for quality upgrades.

And your on a budget? An 8.8 would be a cheaper route. If your planning on doing it right and lifting your jeep and adding bigger tires plus an axle swap your looking at several $1000.

Like many members are saying. Take it slow. I upgraded my first jeep way to fast and ended up doing many things twice or more because I did not like the off road feel.
