Currie 4" lift

Anyone here running a 4" Currie Antirock lift on a JKU? I am interested due to a neat YouTube video for Iron Hornet Offroad but can't find any info on their Jeep and they haven't posted on FB or Instagram in like a year so doubt they are still around. Lift look to articulate well and the AR swaybar seems to ride well. Also what shocks? I love Kings but don't know how any shocks would do in the winters up here. Thanks guys!

I don't have a Currie lift so to speak though I do have Currie control arms, track bars and full Anti Rock system. All of their products are top notch. The Anti Rock system is great, no disconnecting and great flex with a good fealing of control.
I have Elka shocks that are made for Teraflex and really like them though I'm not sure how available they are now. Teraflex doesn't list them on their site anymore. Fox shocks are a more affordable option. I haven't tried Fox so I can't compare the two.

Glad to hear they make quality products. I am excited to get the Jeep lifted but want to make sure I'm doing it right so I only have to do it once. From videos the AR looks awesome though there isn't much rock crawling up here I like trails and adventuring with my wife and kids. I think fox maybe the way to go since kings are so much but I'm not sure

Just curious but any reason why 4" lift? Are you set on that height or just interested because of the video ?

Had their 4" kit a TJ. Great lift and super flexy.

The flex, articulation, travel is mostly dependent on the shocks. Shocks depend on bump stop extention and mount location. A longer compressed shock length does not always mean a longer stroke.

If your after travel put some thought into your shocks.

Ok. TJ and JK totally different animal. 2.5" is popular/ economic for the jk and you can up to 37" tires depending on other factors (fenders/wheels etc..) above 2.5" gets expensive around $1k per inch on avg and may require many additional components like drive shafts etc... But the possibilities are endless so build whatever you like. But my advice.... DO NOT BUY A CHEAP LIFT. By cheap I mean incomplete and low quality. You will regret it and end up spending the money anyway. There's lots of good info on here and some really smart people that will gladly give advice. Best of luck.

The Fox shocks are a great shock but they really are geared towards high speed desert runs. That may not be the best fit for your type of jeeping. Not saying they won't be good but they may not be the best fit.

Alaska apparently is quite strict about fenders covering tires. I want to run flat fenders but don't want to be completely harassed though I've considered it to stay lower center of gravity. I like the jeep in the video quite a bit and want to eventually upgrade axles and run 37s.

Thanks. I learned from previous rigs not to buy cheap. Do it once and do it right.

Good point. I do need to research shocks a bit more...the climate here is -50 to 90 depending on the season and it's all mudding and trails so rock crawler or desert **** doesn't really apply...I haven't found a recipe for up here like there are so many for normal environments in the States
