I've had this lift on my jeep since April w/ a 1in spacer in the front running 33/10.50 bfg at. It's my dd and I haven't had any problems with it. The ride is nice, no vibes and with spacer it sits pretty level. Like they said every jeep is different, be prepared spring for more than just the lift.

Prep is key, used a 3m pad to take the clear off, cleaned em real good, taped off the tires and sprayed 3 coats of rustoleum wheel paint. Had a wrx that I did the same using duplicolor wheel paint which I liked more. They say to use a clear coat but I didn't on either set. I get chips from rock here and there but after a year nothing major, if i see a few nicks i walk out w/ the rattle can and hit em real quick.

I did the tc drop with the spacers that came with the kit. It rides nice and looks nice. I am not a hardcore 4WD guy but I get off the beaten path in my hunting excursions and wanted the added clearance without breaking the bank and a lot of mods. It is a better ride than the stock suspension IMO, doesn't beat you to death but is firm. Here is how mine looks with 31s. You could go 32s no problem with just the 2.5 lift.

I used the RC 3.25" lift with a BL/MML and 35's on lame stock wheels with RC wheel spacers. The t case drop spacers are way too much drop for the 2.5" lift.You could do a MML or drop the skid with just enough washers.

Boogie, the tc drop does seem like a lot with the provided spacers, how much drop is actually needed?
