I just got a new 2014 jku today I am going to lift it and run 35's. I think I am going to get a Rock Krawler lift with bilstein5100 shocks, I don't know if I should get the 2.5" lift for $1095 or the 3.5" for $1470. Also if I get the 3.5" do i need to do more stuff besides putting exhaust extention on (not sure about driveshafts), or am I better off just getting the 2.5" lift? Also they are both the mid arm flex kit.
2.5 with 35's. Flat fenders and you'll have plenty of flex.
This is the way to go...
2013 Billet Rubicon
Ace rock rails, 2.5 teraflex coil lift, AEV Geo brackets, Rancho 9000xl shocks all around, 35x12.5x15 Wrangler MTR's on Mb chaos wheels, Bushwacker flat flares, 12k winch on Rough Country hybrid bumper, Spyder rear bumper/carrier, KC long range windshield lights, rock lights and some other happy crap.
Helped a friend install the RK 2.5" on his JKU a couple of weeks ago. He also runs a Rampage (90lbs) front bumper and JCR sliders (not sure how heavy, but NOT light!) and he got 4" of lift, front and back.
Make sure you're ready for whatever additional mods will be necessary once you start adding that kind of lift! My friend is already preparing for a new drive shaft.

Did he get the new or old coils ?

With the old RK coils and a 2-door, you would get over 4" in front. I like a slight rake too- definitely don't like that front-slightly-higher look I had with the RK. Hopefully the new coils have solved some of these issues some of us 2-door guys had. Well, I guess it is irrelevant in my case- I traded for a JKU. Let the new obsession over springs begin....
