I do know that with a JK, which has longer control arms than the previous TJ, there is no need for a 3 in long arm kit for 35s...so, IMO, a waste of money better spent elsewhere, and, FT is not one of the better lifts for a JK in some opinions.

I do not consider myself a smartass. I point out the obvious, search for the truth, and speak fluent sarcasm. I am, by experience, an accomplished curmudgeon.
I'd recommend doing a search on full traction. I can recall a thread that had many stories of poor customer service a while back. As Rocky said, there isn't really a reason for a "long arm" on a JK, as the control arms are already long enough. DD/weekend trail runs? Don't mind spending cash on a "proper" setup? Choose any brand of full-control arm 3" lift kit. I'm running a Teraflex 3" full flexarm lift and it is great IMHO. There are plenty of other reputable lifts out there to get.
That being said, you can also get a 2.5" BB that will work fine and won't break the bank. Happy lift hunting!
Thanks for the opinions. I am not the BB kind of guy I want a good legit suspension. I saw a jeep with the FT kit, I don't know how it would do on the trails. I am leaning towards the metalcloak game changer lite 3.5 or Teraflex. Just trying to do my homework and get exactly what I want with no regrets.
Well, I can't exactly place it, but I'm sure that I heard less-than-tasteful things about full traction.
If you go with any 3" lift, be aware that you should get a kit that corrects your pinion/caster angles, extends brake lines and disconnects, and definitely get an adjustable front trackbar to center your front axle - the rear you can use either a trackbar relocation mount, adjustable rear trackbar or both. You will need exhaust spacers on a 12+. You are also nearing the point where you will eventually need new to take driveshafts into consideration. The TF full flexarm kit with the monster adjustable trackbar works great IMHO, solid, greasable, no troubles. Just my $0.02.
One of my friends here has their 6in long arm kit. It is real nice and drives well and flexes well. No for the bad news, yes full traction has the worst costumer service. I bought some of their boomerang shackles for my YJ, it took forever to get a hold of them to place the order, and they acted like they could care less. I have requested a catalog from them and have never received it. I think they make great products, it is to bad they do not care about potential sales.
