I don't have a plan so much as a potential parts list. Hopefully the build order and plan will come once I get my head wrapped around everything.

I'm extremely open to feedback and suggestions.

What am I forgetting?

Update 1
Moving the parts list to Google Docs to make it easier to update.
- Parts List: http://goo.gl/2zCGKS

Update 2
KnowWhere2Jeep purchased the rights to Nth Degree stuff from AEV and put the 3" springs back into rotation, so I picked up a set this week. 3/27/2014

Update 3
Updated spreadsheet to create a build order.. added a column to manage build order. #s that are the same I plan to do at the same time. Otherwise, they'll be done when I can afford it.

Update 4
Ordered the Rancho shocks and steering stabilizer from 4WheelParts today, 4/2/2014. Time to take another 2 months and save up some more cash...

Update 5
Found out the clicking in my rear end was the track bar joint... Since the lift is on the way, figured I'd go ahead and pick up the Adjustable rear track bar. Guess I'll be eating Ramen for the next 2 months.

Thats a good start for sure. Would recommend jks 1 1/4 body lift amazon 125 bucks and for around 100 you could get brown dog 1in lift mounts.I think this is a better use of your money and allow its use for the rest of that massive list. doing a lot of digging into this stuff for my 06 tj rubi

I don't want the extra .25 inch in the lift. That's the main reason I went that way.

However, on the other side of the coin I'm worried about the OME springs sagging with the weight I'm planning to put in here. Wondering if I should go with the 3.5" MetalCloaks

Ended up finding some AEV/Nth Degree 3" Springs in stock and grabbed a set. So they are now sitting around waiting for me to figure out the rest of the parts...

Stole the bumper off my TJ to put on the LJ. Gave the TJ the old monstrosity. Luckily for me the wife doesn't care.
