For reference, there's no such thing as a 5" LCG lift. That's not a low center of gravity. That's a marketing term in this case to ride a trend wave.

x2 on this. for 5" of lift to be LCG you better be running coil-overs or majorly modified shock mounts, highline fenders and 40"+ tires

I live in lower Alabama and there aren't hardly any rocks or trails like what y'all have. My intentions would mostly be for mud riding with my friends. Thanks to everyone that's put time into this topic, it's helped me a lot. My dad's gonna be happy because he didn't want to have to pay for the 6 inch lift kit and now he'll only have to pay for like....3.5 or 4.5, mwahahahaha

Rough Country has a long-arm kit they sell with either 4" or 6" springs. Jeep TJ Suspension Lift Kits

Comparable to a Rusty's long-arm kit: Rustys Offroad: TJ Wrangler 5.5" Long Travel Kit

Hey, big guy, untwist those granny panties so you can get your head out. I didn't say anything about you screwing up TeraFlex and LCG. I overlooked that and gave you the benefit of the doubt. Instead, I addressed the idea that any 5" lift could be considered LCG. My 4" Currie lift is nowhere near an LCG project, much less a 5" lift.

That is one heinous creation.



For what you're aiming for, OP, it sounds like a 3.5-4.5 will do you just fine. Lucky you getting to spend Daddy's money.

But other than that, I haven't actually ever spoke with Blaine personally. Only on the forum.
