If you're determined to spend that much coin, might I suggest spending another $100 or so and get this

But if I read correctly, you can't afford the RE kit right now. All the more reason for the IRO 3.5". At nearly half the price of the RE kit, it will get you up in the air now and you can save up for unnecessary stuff like control arms and add them later.

Yes, yes. We know, but you don't really NEED them at 3.5" as you said. But if you have the money now and you want to do it, then go for it. Its your Jeep and it will improve the ride and what not. Then when you want to go higher, you are basically set.

But I would definitely get all adjustables. Otherwise youll have to buy new control arms again to go higher. Or longarms. But you get the point.

Yeah....i might have to think about that premium 4.5". Just not sure I want to go that big. Its staying as a DD, and I dont do anything extreme. No real need for ME to go very high. I originally planned on just a BB. Lol. OK....

Ooo what kind of tires? I'd like to get new tires, but I wont until I get my lift, whenever that will be (prolly another year). My little toyo spectrum's are pretty good in the snow though, i'm suprised!

Looks like you could use an alignment. Also looks like your front axle is off center. I'm curious how you can turn without trimming your front fenders, I'm at 4.5" with 33's and had to trim about an 1 1/2" to be able to turn at full lock.
