Is it okay to run that lift on my stock shocks for a little until my bilsteins get here? I know they will wear out fast but im just going to throw them away anyway once i get the new shocks

But the next best thing, spend the money on good stuff right out of the gate, so you're not double spending later. 4" currie suspension and 37s, and a set of axles. Just do it. Don't think about it. Seriously, pull the checkbook out right now.
THAT! Trust me. Lots of money spent, and I ended up going back to the Currie 4", 37s, and new axles. Do it, and be done! Plus it will save you money on a lot of crap you don't need. Trust me bc I have spent a lot of money on CRAP that I don't/didn't need.

Trust me if i had the money i would... Im still in college and working at a tires plus right now so im in no position to drop 10k right now lol. Im not new to jeeps i went through the same thing with my zj piecing parts over time. All said and done i could have gone long arm but i got all 8 adjustable control arms. With my jk when it comes time to lift over 2.5" ill prob make a custom 4 link rear and a 3 or 4 link front still reading up on this matter.

4 linking the rear of a JK is a lot more work than its ever been on any other jeep, thanks to the location of the fuel tank. might want to revise your thought process

plus, a JK already comes with midarms from the factory - a 4" full currie suspension JK will walk most other setups and jeeps with ease

Hey man! You switched too huh?

I too have been thinking of just dropping the coin.. Its hard when your dreams and desires are 10x more than what your pockets capable of (at the pace of time that you and I would prefer)

For me, I knew I wasnt going any higher than 2.5" so I got a mid grade high quality kit the first time with bilsteins. Rides great with the new coils and shocks, and I wouldnt want to go any higher besides throwing some 37's on there. Good luck on your build, nice to see some grand folks changing over. We all know we secretly wanted a jk to begin with lol

Look at it this way:

At least you are spending money in something better than loose women and blo. Your already ahead of most of your peers!

Tommorow I have my last day at work and i wanted to get in on my employee discount for tires so i pulled the trigger on a set of dueler a/ts in the 315/70/17 flavor and i tried them on just for fun and they fit pretty well! I can turn lock to lock and in reverse and no rubbage. They look sick too, once i put on a 2.5" lift it will look perfect. These tires have amazing road manners they are as quiet as the wrangler sra's and the sidewall to me resembles a duratrac. I got all four for a redhair less than 600$ so ya cant beat that. Also i was amazed i was able to fit the 4 stock tires inside the jeep. Ill be going to the beach tommorow so i cant wait to go naked cruising around town

Yeah if I had the stock bumper on it would have been a problem for sure. Also some good news is I start my new job at Fortec4x4 next Monday so expect some cool mods in the future

Took the jeep down to the beach got about 16 mpg average there and back. Love driving this thing especially with the doors and top off. Once i get a lift on it will look a lot better right now the tires are pretty snug in there
