Well we can always justify a lift We just can't always afford one lol. Honestly you're way to justify(even if you don't wheel it) is that it rides better after the lift(which is true). Then you can always just say "Well it looks better too".

Not gonna lie, my KK barely sees dirt. I just don't have the time nor any place near by to wheel. My get away is heading up on the beach when I have time, which is rare lol

Gageraid,


Has the Old Man Emu spring and shocks; I am planning on doing the same thing. I have stock suspension and 60K on the clock. My left rear shock is leaking oil so it's time pretty soon. I may also go with JBA upper control arms, just have to see what's in the budget and what I can hide from my GF lol.

IF I do it, I am sure that 245/75/16 will fit with no issues, which will be the investment after the suspension.

When you get knee-deep in a situation, floor it.

I wasn't sure which springs. I think he has the 927/731 combo like mine.

I recommend the JBA a-arms. And you can always add a clevis lift and 1/4" top plate for more lift. Just tell the girlfriend you're staying home for a week because you're ill, meanwhile you're just working, saving money on gas and putting a lift kit in lol

JBA puts the 731s down as heavy duty. I honestly don't know anymore, I'm pretty sure the 731s have been called both medium duty at 1 time and now heavy duty.

Lol well I'm 99 percent sure they're the 731 cuz I bought exactly what Tom told me which was HD front, Medium rear from the JBA website. I have the "Econo" lift.

It'll give you an inch more of clearance and look WAY better.

Notice mine is removed.

There's no need to wait.

All you have to do is crouch in front of your libby and twist 5 clips. Will probably take 60 seconds if you take your time to figure out
