Question on Shock/bb combo... newb question

Hey all, my apologies for the newb question, i have searched... havnt found what i was looking for.

I have a 2004 WJ 4.7, and ive started putting a together a modest lift. UC springs, ES9000 Shocks, 2in KOR bb, addco RSB, 265/65/17 REVO's.

My Question...

What should i expect out of this setup. Ride Quality? Off Road performance? Any advice, or do you think i should replace any of those components with anything else?

Thanks again all.

~Craig

oh and heres a pic of the jeep all stock.

i would ditch the bb+coils and just go straight to 3" or 4" coils..i think you will regret it if you dont. alot of guys that run that setup end up popping their coils out when their front axle droops..it will also give it a somewhat smoother ride if you stick to just coils..

im running a stock rear swaybar with extended endlinks so i cant give my opinion for the addco..
0
with the 3" lift i would go with 31's (minor trimming) or 32's ( alittle more trimming needed)

i have RE monotube shocks and i love them..id definately recommend them..

this setup will give you a good daily driver/offroad combo..also adding JKS front swaybar disconnects will allow more up and down travel for the front when offroad..not a bad idea to look into those..you might also need a JKS adjustable trackbar but every jeep is different..

good luck

uhh theres really no wheelin on long island...and you definately wont pop a coil out cruising on the beach...i just mean with the bb+uc coil, if your swaybar is disconnected and you're at like max downtravel, your coil will probably pop out..
