Currie leveling kit

I've been doing some research and recently came across the Currie leveling kit for the JK. At $300 front, $300 rear and new "long travel" shocks, it is by far and away the most expensive leveling kit I've ever seen. That being said, its marketed as a "long travel" kit. My gut tells me this is marketing and I've read that the only real difference is that it comes with longer brake lines to allow for more droop, but am I missing something? Anyone out here run this kit? I checked on here and didn't see any topics on it. Maybe thats all I need to hear...

Travel is all in the shocks. A small lift or leveling kit with longer shocks is a true "LCG" built rig.

Rear- http://www.4wheelparts.com/Lift-Kits...pn=CURCE-9802R


Front- Currie Part CE-9802F - 2.25 Inch Front Long Travel Leveling Lift Kit - Fits 2007 to 2014 JK Wrangler, Rubicon and Unlimited - 4 Wheel Parts

One of their selling points is that you can fit 33" tires on there with this kit... I have 33's on my jeep now with no lift. Like I said, I wanted some opinions on this kit because Currie is a great name in the industry, but I wonder if they just put out an overpriced kit... I only really want to level out my jeep, but if I truly were to gain some extra travel with a kit like this one, why not? I guess the fact that by the time its all said and done, its $1,000 would be one reason.

I looked into this kit and almost pulled the trigger. It does increase travel by longer sway bar links, longer brake lines/relocation brackets, longer bump stops and it also requires longer shocks. it ends up costing almost as much as an AEV 2.5" kit by the time you are done. It would work well tho and be well made..

AEV 2" kit comes with shock extending brackets and provides an RTI on a 20 degree ramp of close to 800. AEV kit does not address the rear brake lines which need to be addressed tho. I put on TF relocate brackets and got plenty of slack. The rear swaybar also needs to be lowered or longer links used to get full drop. Front gets all it can as provided.

Very interesting stuff. I too was looking at the AEV kit, but this Currie kit has just come on my radar.
