Yea that's a good option too. Rubi express isn't as good as currie and requires more upkeep but still a good product.

Savvy and a couple other companies make HD alum products. Keep things simple, light and $$ in shock setup. Keep away from the stereo type jeep stuff. Lol.

Seems most Jeep guys are like guys on CF

Not saying its wrong, just not my style. I'm all about function, the way my things perform. I have very little interest in bling or other non-functional things. A vehicle that "looks good" but rides/performs like stock (or worse), doesn't interest me at.

But most people think dropping $2k on shocks is asinine...so I know I'm in the minority. But I think it's money well spent.

I'm finding these Jeep aren't all that much different than our trucks.
To get them to do what we want them to do you have to do the research, get the good stuff, and spend the coin if you can.

You gotta come down. Talk shop and get you an idea of what your in for.

Ideal setup
Front Currie 4" or custom mid arm setup. Fox or king 2.0 with air bumps. Have Wayne at all tech tune your shocks. Front anti rock sway bar. Trussed and gusseted front axle. Triangulated rear setup. Out boarded 12 shocks in the rear, custom mount 12" front shocks, cut and shave mounts for clearance then bump and strap everything lol. Cage it add some suspension seats and gooooooo lol. The bottom line the TJ will only be so fast due to the wheelbase. I do a lot of my higher speed stuff in 4wd if its really loose. It's gonna take some time to get use to driving the jeep at speed.

I'm running Carli-tuned 2.5 Kings.
Don offers different stages for his, but Sage just has one standard tune, that's what I'm running. I think they will revalve if to have particular needs, but as I understand it, most everyone gets the base tune.

To say I'm super-impressed with them so far is an understatement.
