Purchasing a New Jeep,Lift Question

Well In a Few months i will be purchasing an 07 wrangler, and selling my current one. I was looking at getting the Re 4.5 Super-Flex Kit with a 1-2 inch body lift. I know i will need an Sye, but what else will i need that this KIT does not provide? or does it provide everything?

Also Im looking to go bigger than 35s can the dealer do axle swaps?? i mean is there any way that they can just put in a dana 44 or something for me? Well thanks guys for all your help


97 Tj, 4 banger
Brush Guard, Off Road Lights
3 inch body lift, With 33s
Mods to come-4.56 gears or 4.88, NEW Bfg 33s,2.25 BB lift

Rather than looking at having them put one in, maybe you should look at the Sahara with the Dana 44 already in, or the Rubicon with 44's front and rear. Save you some time and money down the road as you go bigger.

I think if you get an X with either the LSD and/or towing package, you get a 44 in the rear. May want to look into that.

07?

You don't need 4 inches of lift to run 35's on an 07. Additionaly the 07 is not a TJ, and thus this thread should be in the JK forum.

I don't believe anyone makes gear sets yet for these "new and improved" axles yet. So you may be able to lift it enough to clear large tires but you won't have any power left.

Actually someone posted earlier that they were making them, but they weren't a vendor member so the thread got deleted.

Due to lack of interest, tomorrow has been canceled
