Does anyone know anything about or have experience with a Daystar BB?

All budget boost kits are pretty much comparable. Its just a poly coil spacer - nothing fancy.

The only differences you'll find amongst most of the BB kits are:

1. Bumpstop extensions included/not included.

2. The shocks.

The only other difference is the actual thickness (amount of lift) of the spacers. It appears most are really 1.75" while they advertise 2".

Some measure a true 2.25". What's 1/2" worth to you?

I JUST (3 hrs ago) put on the 1 3/4" and overall was pretty easy. Just make sure you have torx (T60 I think it was), metric and 3/4" sockets. I haven't had a chance to really drive it yet.

i have the daystar lift that they advertise as a 2 3/4 front, 1 3/4 rear. it's just two spacers on each side in the front and you remove the factory coil isolater, and one spacer per side in the rear. it takes away the rake, the jeep sits nice and level. i'm at work so i can't get you a pic. like everyone else said, installation is the same as any other except you do get actual new bumpstops not just extensions. some folks say not to stack spacers but mine has been fine. i ran it with the stock shocks for a while and then got some skyjacker hydros. for the money a RE BB is probably a better deal but I like the extra inch of lift i got up front.

To me, Daystar = overpriced. And beyond that, there's no real difference in one BB from another other than the shock absorbers used.
