If you are adding the pucks to the top you are going to need the adjustable control arms up front to keep the tires from rubbing the rear of the front fenderwells. You will need the adjustable trac bar for front and at least the trac bar bracket for the rear. New brake lines.

If you have the cv front driveshaft, toss that and get a Tom Woods custom for about 200. You'll probably need to regear for the tires.


If you have questions, send them.

Reddog.


with that much lift your control arms (stock) will have a very steep aggresive angle to them. You are going to feel every bump in the road. They are too short. With that much height, you're going to look like a monster truck on its trailer wheels and tires.


You will need a new steering stab also.

Okay,

if you don't have the money right now, then wait. Your jeep is too nice and costly to lift it halfway and then regret doing it.

If you are really set on lifting it. Go with a 3.5 kit at first. Then you can add the BB later if you want. *this is the least expensive route.

Or you can wait and save and get something like the RE 4.5 and then go bigger later.


Keep in mind, the short arm kits are reversible. You can take them off if you don't like them. Long arm kits are permanent. They are welded and parts get cut off. You can't revert back to stock.

Sounds great. Make sure to get some extended front brake lines and extended bumpstops. The brake lines will allow you some crazy flex and the bumpstops will limit the flex to not eat the inside of your front wheel wells. Yes, I've done it and cut the tire from the top of the lug completely through the belts. Not very pretty, but man IT WAS STUFFED>
