Not necessarily just johnny joints I like seeing what people can get out of their stock rigs... that's pretty good work.. that's enough flex to get you through a trail

I keep forgetting that kit comes with EVERYTHING

You can get it with just disconnects if you want, but for a little bit extra the antirock is worth it! It's cheaper than upgrading to the antirock later if you decide to.

One of the lifts I'm considering just to boost it up a little is RC's 3.75" kit that doesn't come with Arms Long soft springs because other than a hard top my jeeps pretty light weight.. I figure if I upgrade as long as the lift I get gives me some fun while I have it I can sell the springs when i'm done and say I got my dollars worth.

lol jeep punk you know that's the dream lift! Well before the coil overs and dreams of Grandeur that looks like you're having some fun with it!!

Dream lift would be coilovers, highline, and 37s!

I'd say save up for the RC 4" X Flex kit if that's the height you want. That looks like a solid kit. In my opinion, don't spend money on a lift to just "get you by." If it takes a little longer to save for what you ultimately want, so be it. Better than spending your hard earned money on a kit to just hold you over. But, that's just how I see it. If that's what works for you then hell, go for it!

Hell yea I'm having fun with it! Haha

your shocks... A longer damper will only limit your up travel. I don't see why you'd want more drop, it looks like your coils are unseating.

It's pretty solid right now I'd say fenders and more uptravel for more articulation
