Currie all the way. i may have scaled things back, but I'm not cheaping out

full currie with aluminum anti-rocks front and rear and currie track bars. right now I'm trying to decide if i should spend the money up front and burn the coil overs in or keep it simple and run them as shocks. the reason why i debate it is that I'm going to have to cut the axle side brackets for the coil overs off when i go to increase the OD thickness to 3". it would just be a pain in the ***.

basically for me to run the coilovers i need another $950 roughly, as i need the mounts for frame and axle side, as well as air bumps.

It would be cheaper in the long run to just do it right the first time.

I'd take Currie over both ANY day of the week. Unfortunately for the JK folk, all they know is AEV, RK, and Tera.

True. Currie and Clayton are the only two I would consider from now on.

yeah but currie only comes with a 4in lift. You only need 2.5 and flat fenders to fit the 37s.

So get shorter coils.....

You can buy all Currie parts individually.

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

IndyORV- Dick and fart jokes, titties, throttle, flops, beer, tater balls, and good times.

More dollars than sense comes to mind.

Don't worry Will, we're not making fun of you. You're sort of breaking the mold.
