And the fact that they make a Wrangler in the 2wd flavor disgusts me. And to the OP, how would you come to the conclusion that TJ's are more expensive to modify than JK's if your TJ is stock?

I don't know about TJs but YJs came in 2WD.

Anyways, the TJ might be inadequate compared the your JK but you've already modified the JK. Have you also taken into consideration the cost of the JK compared the the TJ?

You could also order XJ's and the Comanche truck in 2wd. They are both Jeeps.

The new JK has brought something back to Jeep that has been missing since the CJ5... masculinity. (kidding...kind-of)

Aimed at the haters.

To get back on topic: If you want to keep it cost effective I'd go with a 2.5" RC lift with 15" soft 8's wrapped in 33" MT/R Kevlars. Done. My buddy got closer to 3" off that lift on his 4.0L.
Why make such a gross generalization? Who said anything about afford? You may think it's strange, but I sold my couple year old 7 series BMW to buy my old '92 YJ. I could've bought anything I wanted. Two Rubicon JKs even (and still had change left over).

Not all things are motivated by money or affordability.

Far from it actually. I just dislike ridiculously uninformed comments. You just mention random but very important aspects of a suspension like they are a nuisance-bump stops-among several other things that make it obvious you don't know the WHY's and HOW's. If you're going to say, "TJs are just a giant hassle" please provide legitimate reasons. I guarantee that I can argue right for every wrong you say. I'd actually love to help you build the TJ correctly if you are willing to step outside the box and listen to some good advice. And I totally agree with the "LCOG" method for many positive reasons.

i agree you are one smart fella when it comes to the jeep ; ) ive read a lot of good comments and posts from ya and i mean no disrespect, theres just always lots of "what a dumb question, you dont know anything" that goes around forums cant we all just get along!
I didnt post this in the tech section as you can see, as it wasnt really tech, just my thoughts, and your right im no suspension guru, but ive got a pretty fair understanding which is why i like to search a lot and not say much.
im thinking im gonna go with minimal lift and fender/tub trimming, "high line" style front end, i think i may start with some new coils and a basic spacer lift to make it level at least, the front end does sit pretty raked currently, possibly sagging coils (its got just over 100k miles)
everybody has an opinion even if it sounds dumb
TJ's are a blast, otherwise i wouldnt have bought one right? i just hadnt heard from enough knowledgeable people that it would work to cut and stuff big tires (gross exageration of course) without big lift and endless toiling
man what a long post

What is so hard about lifting a TJ? throw on a 2 inch budget boost or a 2.5 inch RC coil lfit, install a one inch body lift, throw some 33s on and call it a day. How is that hard?

Honestly though, I see contradicting statements in how you are calling the TJ a girl jeep when you stated how its not suited for her, newly pregnant, hauling kids..yet, the JK is better suited for the girl..
Seems like quite the opposite from your own words, just sayin..
hhahaha yeah so true

Yup. And I'm jumping on the bandwagon of, everything you said seems the opposite. I think the JK would be more adequate for a pregnant wife, and a TJ would be more fitting for a man.

Is your sarcasm aimed at me? The op said his modded JK is fit for his pregnate wife to drive, and that she can't drive her TJ anymore so he has to drive it. Obviously he is subconsciously stating on accident that JKs are for pregnant women and TJs are for men haha.
