Yep. I'm familiar with lifts by all major makers. It's a toss up now between the TF 2.5, AEV 2", or RE 2". Was hoping to get my hands on one in person to check it out there.

Got it, thanks very much, I may be ordering the lift tomorrow so maybe next weekend for the install? I'll get in touch with you to see if your available with plenty of time in advance. Going for a full suspension lift this time, spacers, new shocks, new links, etc etc.

Awesome!! I've been looking for some stuff to get to install too. If anyone has any other items they need to install come over. We'll have a install party!

I'm looking for a good place to go around Raleigh area. I know these posts are from last year. Are they still there, or does anyone know of anywhere else w/in a 50 mile radius? I'm babying my Jeep for now, the paint's too nice to be scraping it up. So I'm looking for some nice WIDE trails!

These posts are from this year. There is a nice wide power line trail off 98. No trees or anything to scratch you up. Page rd is a little tight in places.

Ran into a guy yesterday as I was coming out of a CVS here in town. He and his friend were getting into their car parked beside me. They were both standing there talking about my Jeep as I was coming out. We got to talking and he asked if I'd been back to Ligon Mill Rd in Raleigh. I told him I thought it was illegal to wheel there from what I've heard but he said he didn't know. Does anyone?

Found a video of a stocker wheelin there. Pretty sure he lucked out of hydrolocking here.

Hey JK guys.. Looks like I'm going to a 4dr possibly. I'm selling my 2.5 4dr kit. It will raise the jeep close to 3 inches and rides great. Its teraflex with shock extensions. Also have ace engerring rock rails. They don't have no scratches or nothing like that at all!

teraflex kit 390.
Rock sliders 200 obo. If you come over we can install them right there and I'll give you my already modded body mount bolts in exchange for yours.

All this has about 3k miles on it. So its pretty much brand new!

I can install the lift on the jeep as well

I might head over to Page rd today - I was out there yesterday, pretty sloppy but it was fun. I don't have any self recovery equip so I had to be careful. If I hit there today it will probably be around 1pm or so.
