I recently put my old Land Cruiser trail rig to rest because it got too damn expensive to fix it.
I have some money laying about and need a new truck to buy and was hoping to get into a cheap JK. Here in Colorado you can get a Sport for about 22 grand, new.
I was just having some basic questions, since I'm a noob to the Jeep
-what's a good 2.5-3" lift?
-do I need to regear an MT if I run 35"s?
-can you run the new Jeeps with sway bars removed, or does it result in really scary handling?
I want to run this on the trails, but still have it livable enough that I can use it to drive 10 miles to work and back.
They sell AEV's around here, would one of their packages even be worth considering, or is it overpriced?
