The bad thing about a Jeep...

Is there are sooo many accessories available to be had, it gets confusing trying to figure out what I want. As soon as I see something I like, I see something else....

No it's after you buy something you see something else

I have that same problem. Here is the trail I took.

1 - Daystar 3/4 " leveling kit, front only. (purchased and installed before joining this site)

1 - Tereflex 2 " leveling kit. 2" front and 1 " rear. (Still in the box and purchased after joining this site)

Now I have 2 leveling kits and I just ordered the stock HD 19/60 coil springs.

I guess the good thing is that I have several options now.

After changing the coil springs, I should get somewhere around 2 inches of lift.

Then, I can add the 3/4 " puck from Daystar to eliminate some of the rake, or
I can add one or both of the front 1 " pucks from Tereflex to eliminate the rake and compensate for my winch and bumper. or
I can install the entire Tereflex leveling kit. This could get me up to 4 inches of lift and leveling.

The bad thing is I have more options.

Of the few items I put on my Jeep,, here is my thoughts.

Best..

- center console arm pad!
- dead pedal!
- window deflectors!
- AFE drop in air filter!
- Filp rearview mirror!
- Sahara running boards!


Worst..

- Air Raid open air element.
- Roll bar grab handle.
- Drake Billet gas cap.
- Dirty Dog Sun Shade,,ill fitment.
- Drake Billet gas cap,,, yes it sucks that bad its listed twice!
