I have a line on a HP d30 with ARB, 30 spline chromos and 4.56 gears for $700.

I'm thinkin either re-gear the 8.8 (4.10) or swap the goodies into a TJ housing with 4.10 gears.

I wish I had $20,000 lying around so I could stop being forced to make decisions!!!!!

It can be done. i run 33's with 3in of lift and a 1in bumpstop extension with no rubbing at all so 4in of total lift (bl and coils) plus 2in of bumpstop should be fine.

I see some folks with odd length coils.. 3 in front and 2.5 in back..

What company does that?

I am looking to buy a tried , true and proven lift and you guys are talking me into something...

thanks in advance..

Rusty's sells 2", 3", 4" coils separately. I'm sure other suspension manufacturers do as well. You can also use spacers to level it out. Lot of people put more lift in the front to account for the rake that Wranglers have naturally, and the added weight of bumpers, winches etc. I don't have a winch or bumper right now, but the 8.8 will lift the rear end up about 5/8" in the rear, so I need to account for that. I'm guessing a 2" lift in the rear and a 3" lift in the front will be good. I can always play with spacers to level it out perfectly.

Until you load up for the trail and then you look like a stinkbug running in reverse while you blind everyone with your too high headlights.

HAH

It looks like that when it's loaded even without the spacers now!

And regardless, all that gear is gonna come out before I start hitting the real trails.

You might at least want to measure your 'rake' with your butt in the driver's seat and a passenger. If you make it perfectly level when parked, you might not like it when you're in it.

I guess it depends on where/how you like to take your pictures...

Good call. Like I said, I can play around with temporary shims and stuff to figure out what stance works the best loaded and unloaded. Then just cut the spacer to whatever thickness it needs to be.

I was running level with full interior, hardtop and trail gear. That was with 2.5" lift. Now its closer to 3" or 3.5" lift in the rear as i have nothing in the jeep. Sometimes I have thoughts of relocating shocks and either a bodylift or highlining the metalcloaks and inch or so. I think it would be nice to get the flex and travel from 12" shocks all around but don't want to lift it more than it is..

4" springs in the front (2,300 lbs axle weight) and 5" springs in the rear (2,700 lbs axle weight). Works for me...

Gone but not forgotten.
