I've had my 06 Rubicon Unlimited for about a year now, and so far I've kept it pretty stock. I'd like to get started with a lift and new tires, but I'd really like feedback on the direction I'm thinking of heading. I also have a handful of questions
I live in eastern North Dakota (the flattest part of the country) but plan trips to the badlands in the western part of the state and go to MT regularly to visit family. I'd say 90% of the fun I'll have will be out in the mud around here and the lake country of MN, but that other 10% when I get to make a trip somewhere is pretty important to me. I'd like to be fairly capable on trails anywhere. The only time the Jeep sees the interstate is when I'm heading somewhere to use it (camping, lake country, etc.) but it is basically my daily driver in the winter. Hopefully that's enough background information, but let me know if I'm leaving something out. Also, here are some pics
So- after reading up for a few days, I'm thinking of putting on the RE 3.5" SF. Northridge4x4 has it listed for a reasonable price and lots of people seem happy with them so I'm looking at this
. There are options for OME shocks for ~$250, but I'm thinking that there may be something out there just as suitable for a bit cheaper? Also, I'd like recommendations on a SYE, CV drive shaft, and adjustable track bars. What would go well with this kit?
For tires, I'm looking at 33x10.5 Interco Swamper TSL radials. I have the stock wheels and tires, so I should be able to put the Swampers on the stock wheels just fine, right?
What am I missing? Does this setup make sense? Any other suggestions?
Thanks for any replies in advance!
