Works? BB, disconnects, tires.

Ladies & Gents, I am about to upgrade my jeep and wanted to see if anyone had this setup or insight on it.

2012 manual JKU sport:
Rough Country 2.5 BB w/o shocks
Rough Country Exhaust Extensions
Rough Country Quick Disconnects
33" Falken AT Tires

I know this is a very basic setup, but you have to start somewhere. Let me know what you think, help is appreciated.

I would work. Just remember though, if you ever want to upgrade it, you cant really upgrade a BB without going to a coil lift. Have you thought about just going with a coil lift of the bat?

Do some research on RC. They have a reputation. I would go with the Teraflex BB.

I was in between the TF and the RC budget boost. I think I'm on the TF side of the fence now though.

Jason, I'm not made of money. HAHA! I'll graduate to coil lift down the road. Also, thanks for the link, they have great prices.

I wouldn't rule out a rough country budget boost. There isn't much to making one honestly.

I understand the general hype about Rough Country springs, shocks, etc, blah blah blah.

The thing about a budget boost is that it's made of spacers (no difference from one brand to another except some are steel, others are not) and that the rest of the kit is very complete. It includes shock extensions, brake line brackets, and the spacers. Based on their bumper and previous experience with lifts (unlike most people that post about them with no experience) I would say it's well worth it. It's 140 bucks (before the jeepforum discount, make sure to say that) compared to almost 350 with teraflex. The only thing the kit doesn't have that I would say you need to add is bumpstop extensions but I believe RC has some.

Went with teraflex because of the robust bump stops and honestly the name. Plus they have awesome install videos on youtube. Thanks to krawloffroad for the awesome prices and quick shipping! Doing the boost this weekend.
