My lift setup

So after saying i was buying 4 different other lifts i think ive actually pieced together the perfect one for me. What killed me was i had a lot already invested into this thing that i would basically have to toss or try to sell if i got a kit. So first i got jks jspec 2" coils front and rear. Front for the two door and it looks like they only have one part number for the rear.

I already have rear brake line extension brackets which give me way more articulation possibilities. Im adding fronts too for insurance.

Now to addressing geometry issues. I already have a teraflex rear track bar relocation bracket installed for my BB and it still has one higher hole which i will use for this application. Im going with teras monster adjustable up front and adding AEV's geo brackets.

And lastly, if you know me or have read some of my post you know how much i love my rancho 7000 mt shocks. Unfortunately they are the 0-2" flavor and would not be suitable for this much lift (2" jks springs will probably give me a little more bc im so light no armor etc) this is my dilemma. Ive put extension in the cart

But dont know if im going to buy them to save 300+ bucks or just get new ones. Extensions just turn me off for some reason. We will see. Anyways grand total is $765.94 out the door. Thinks its a pretty slamming price and ive completed it as opposed to spending that much for an incomplete kit. Opinions welcome tell me what you think! Fierce attitudes in 35" going on after the lift. Will have the lift before the end of january.

Where are you now? Shock extensions are what they are. A money saver. like or dislike, not buying shocks again drops the price. The brackets for the brakelines and the new coils are replacing what?

Reread your post. So it's a BB you are replacing. What size are the pucks?

These have no bearing on your articulation. Your shocks are your limiting factor in articulation.

If this is a 2" lift you wont have much of a geomentry issue - if any at all. For example your geomentry changes on a 2" lift wont effect your steering where you would need a high steer flip kit.

I would skip the shock extension brackets and jsut get shocks for the lift..probably going to get a better shock too.

I didnt even bother with control arms until I went over 3" in lift.

My current pucks are 1 3/4". And in regards to articulation i meant with the brake lines being more flacid i have more options if i wanted to flex more. And i knew a high steer would def not be needed but was worried about the control arm angle. Thats why i added the geo correction brackets. Thinking about buying the new shocks instead of the extensions though....

I had a different experience. I have a 2dr, and i swapped in some 59 coils in the rear and 18's up front. From just that amount of lift, i could hear a clunking coming from the rear of the jeep when i was driving relatively slow on level ground. Nothing earth shattering, it was due to the rear pinion not being parallel with the rear driveshaft, so i put some rear upper adj arms on there and voila, no more clunking.

I guess my point is, put that lift on there and see how it feels, but you may end up wanting to put some adj control arms there to get your axles where you want them, or you might end up feeling like gorilla quoted above.

I had a 2" BB to start and the angle of the conrol arms really did not change for me(I have a 2 door also). No issues really other than wanting a bit more of a lift

But once I went to the 3.5" changing the upper and lower CA made a huge difference. Next is to correct the sterring issues with a flip kit.

I guess if your budget allows go for all you can...cant hurt anything...especially if you want to go higher.
