What tools? I have all sorts of sockets and ratchets and extensions if that's all I'll need (Besides a jack).
So my setup is BB+Upcountry+JK shocks so it was done cheaply.
Things I like:
Things I don't like;
-Without trackbars I get some bump steer
-Tires rub when turning one direction on the street (off center axle), but even wheels with more backspacing can help that
-While the ride isn't horrible, it isn't great either.
-Need to bumpstop because I rubbed a lot on my last wheeling trip (will have pics up soon).
If you want something cheap that just works, then this setup is fine.
If you want something that works well and rides nicer, then get the IRO kit.
I've been thinking a lot about what direction I want to take my jeep and I'd like to end up with 4.5" lift (probably long arms) with an 8.8 and lockers (ECTED or EATON), and some weld in rock sliders.
The way I see it, I'll make do with this cheap lift until I'm ready to spend some real money (within the next couple years).
Not to mention, I don't go out wheeling very often right now, so this setup is fine for how often I go and the trails I do. If you're out a lot more you'll probably want something else. So you might want to take that into consideration with your jeep too.
