Arguing with a truck driver is like wrestling with a pig in mud, eventually you realize the pig enjoys it.
Hey, welcome! I have to go cheap! Because I have responsibilities that I must take care of. If I had the money, I would go 4" LA, sye, etc. I have 2" bb, 1.25 bl, 1" mml, 33x12.50x15. It works very well. It works better than I can. It's silly to spend for what you can't use. If you are hardcore, ya gotta spend the big bucks. But hard core is REALLY HARD. I have done things with my cheap stuff that I have not been able to do with any other vehicle I have ever owned (except for my three-wheeler). Build it for what you want to do. You can wheel a stock JEEP better than any other vehicle (stock) in the world. Wheel it for a while as it is, figure out what you style is, and HAVE FUN! And don't forget to acknowledge your fellow JEEPers with a friendly wave! (It's a Rule)
Welcome to WF. Sounds like your plans are pretty solid but if I had a stocker to start out with Id say skip the coil spacers. Just go with a 4" lift becuase thats plenty to clear 33's and flex. Then get a belly up skid and a sye/Tom Woods drive shaft. Then you'll have tons of underbody clearence. Id also suggest savin a bit of $$ by simply gettin a winch plate and putting it on your stock bumper. Its cheap and it doesnt look too bad runnin the stock front. Deff. go with mud terrains though, they do fine on the road and great off road. Ok, I've rambled enough, you can find out more just by asking everyone.
Ashley, it sounds as though you have fallen hard for this Jeep "thing." Welcome to the club! Most of us became "hardcore" the moment we made that first purchase just as you appear to have done. I can't imagine life without a Wrangler on my driveway. My wife has even said so herself! Again, welcome to the best forum on the planet!
