Gonna get it lifted. The problem is I contacted JEEP, and they told me that if I lifted through them everything will still be under warranty. If I lift it on my own it will void the warranty on some parts. This is my first dilemma(had to use spell check for this word).
Second issue: I like the 3" BDS lift kit, however if I go through the dealer to do the work, I will have to go with MOPAR, the 4.5" lift costs over $5K, and the 2.5" is semi reasonable
screw the warranty and buy the BSD, you can put all that money you saved on the lift for anything that breaks on the jeep that isnt covered.

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.- Helen Keller
I am willing to bet that even if you get the lift through Jeep and have a problem, they will still deny warranty coverage. Too bad LL bean dosent own jeep, I sent an air matress back to them that my cat deflated and they sent me a new one. Even told them what happened. Now thats a warranty.
Screw warranties. It's a JEEP. If you can't figure out how to fix something (if it ever happens), you don't need to own one. Spending $5k on suspension is NUTS. BDS isn't bad, Clayton is better and will probably be cheaper.
come on imped, i've appreciated your input on this site but really, "if ya cant fix it don't own a jeep" thats ....do you live in house? can you fix it when it breaks? I suppose you sewed your own seat upholstery too....geez I'm sure vedors would be thrilled if only mechanics bought jeeps
no disprespect intended but if ya cannot answer the guys question don't discourage him from even tying to learn/spend....and no I'm not vendor or mechanic jsut a wise guy looking for fun in all the wrong places....
I have been up in the air too about which lift to get for my unlimited. One question you should ask is what size tires are you going to run. 35s will fit with a BB and wheel spacers. Also with a BB you still retain the stock suspension.
Im with everyone else, save the dough and get BDS.
BTW ur Jeep looks nice, but please get rid of the chrome.
