full traction long arm

I am stuck between the 4in w/ 1in body lift and the 6in full traction long arm kits. I would like to run 37in mt/rs. If you guys could point me in the right direction it would be great. Pics would help a ton to.

If you build your jeep so big and bad that it's really easy to get threw everything out there, then your going to get bored.

I have been running the FT long arm kit for a couple of seasons now, and I really like the way it works. All of the parts are high-quality, and the kit seems really well thought out as a whole. Here are a couple of pics. I am running 35" MTR's and would have had to extend the bumpstops to keep the tires out of my fenders with 37s before I went with the tube fenders.

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!

Go all the way and get the 6". Especially if you're wanting to run 37's. I know everyone will say to go as low as possible and I have to agree but my thoughts are if you don't do it now you'll want to later. Go ahead and get the 6" bug out of your system and if it winds up being too much then you can always swap springs and get to 4 or 5 inches. You don't have to use FT springs.

I'm not sure how well the 4" SA kits compares in height to the 4" LA kits but I'm guessing they should be close to the same if not exact. I took a good look at a guys Jeep with the 4" SA kit with 33's. He really didn't look like he had that much room to spare. Actually I was shocked that it didn't provide more height than it did.

Also don't forget about all the other fun goodies that come with running big ass tires. You'll need a new driveshaft, gears, chromoly axles, upgraded steering and exhaust amongst other things. When steeping up that high you really put a lot of stress on the axles and steering components. Even with the fairly light MTR's.
