Something nice for your wife/GF. This way they associate Jeep funds with your showing them affection.

get a mml(motor mount lift) to take away vibes and so you don't need to cut the fan shroud. RC sells them for $55.

OK so does this mean that I should buy something nice for my husband? For the same reason?

I've been looking at the rough country 3.25" lift kit, which is 2.5" coils and .75" spacers. What else do I need to complete the lift? Besides something for my hubby!

Get a 1" mml to take away driveshaft vibrations caused from the lift. It may or may not take away all of the vibes, but it will definately reduce them more than doing nothing at all.

You'll need the RC rear trackbar bracket and an adjustable front trackbar if you'd like your axles to be centered under your Jeep. You'll also need 2" bumpstop extensions on front and rear if you'd like to increase your articulation and remove the ability of your shocks to bottom out.
