I live in Park city and have had my 08 2 door JKR for about 3 months, I'm 16 years old. I guess I have awesome parents
, I have wheeled it enough to know that I probably should have a winch, because my dad and I usually wheel alone, and some decent armor.
I have a hookup through one of my friends dads that works at a parts department that can get me everything wholesale.
So far I have a list and was wondering the opinions of more experienced people
I want quality stuff, because I would rather have it last then have to get quality stuff when the not-so good stuff breaks.
My list so far includes:
Rugged ridge xhd bumper:
light bar with 2 hella 500/kc daylighters
windshield mounted lights
Is a stinger really worth it? sometimes i like the look. but i also sort of feel like it's overboard for me. will i eventually want it? being located in Utah.
Ace Rock rails:
I've heard good things about these and i think they will be good with the stock rubicon rails.
A good winch, well made (American) decent price
and allows lots of weight for when i really lift this thing and get some bigger tires.
Will all of this extra weight on the vehicle require me to get some sort of leveling kit/small lift kit?
My parents are kind of split about getting a lift. They're coming from the side that it decreases the smooth ride, and increases roll-ability. I was wondering about wheel spacers? do they help with lowering your center of gravity? and are they legal in Utah?
If I were to get a lift I would consider the Old Man Emu 2 inch kit, not sure if I would go with heavy duty or medium for the coils. (I don't want the jeep to sag on the front end, and I want quality, which OME seems to have.)
and does a 2 inch lift look stupid with 31s? cause i don't have the cash to blow on big tires right now.
I'm open to any suggestions of anything really. I've been searching for all of my answers using search function, but I'm not a pro at this and really want to make sure everything turns out ok.
Thank you so much in advanced everyone
