I'm guessing much more in the front will result in axle binding from the steep angle?

Sorry, just trying to understand if there is a benefit to mixing kits or just buying a SL and calling it good. I would love to clear 35s without clearance issues

Thanks guys!

Bob how many miles do you have one your Jeeps now? You best bet will be to get the SL and some Bilsteins up front and go from there.

Still the original shocks?! Looks like you have some good stuff coming Well you could get the armor first and just be more limited to were you can go (and your suspension will hate you for a little while) or you could get the lift first and be able to go more places and do more challenging trails but you will have to tip toe your way down the trail so you don't smash anything. It's really ip to you! Are you set on getting the SL or undecided?

I'm not set on SL but they seem to offer a nice kit with heavy duty parts and a nice amount of lift. I'm pretty open to anything right now.

Thanks Bud! It stands for Off Road Technology. You know like Street & Racing Technology (SRT).

Ok new update It has only been a day but having the front be an inch taller than the rear was getting to me. So I took advantage of some free time this afternoon. I wasn't sure if I wanted to use my old spacers or not since they are 1.5", but after measuring everything again the rear was actually just under 24". So I modded the already modded spacers so I could run them on the bottom instead of the top and through them in. Final measurements are 25" front and rear!!!








Now my near future mods consist of extending my JKS quicker disconnects so I can run them in the rear, reinstalling my front limit straps, and getting the 35s under her and testing clearances.
