Upgrading help...

Hi, new to forum AND jeep. I bought a 2012 mw3 rubicon about 3 months ago. Just visited Uwharrie NC to wheel and it performed above and beyond my expectations to say the least. Now.... I am planning to upgrade most likely with a 4 or 4.5" lift and 35's instead of 37's mainly for the ride on the road and $$$ wise... The biggest question that I have is what kind should I get? What mods do I have to do? I like the AEV tubeless front bumper that comes stock on it and plan on cutting the sides on and weilding a plate in its place to make room for travel and looks... Don't think anyone has done that yet .... Also, I want a very versatile long arm lift that gives the best of both worlds.... Driving/flex/rock crawling.......any suggestions?????

4/4.5 is alot of lift for 35s. Any reason why you are set on such a high lift?

I've seen a thread about making the AEV bumper into a stubby and it looked pretty good. Seems like a shame to cut up such an expensive bumper though. I think it was done on JK-forum.com.

It all depends on how much coin you are willing to drop.on your jeep. Im very happy with the way mine crawls/drives/flexs/and handles. BUT it wasnt a cheap build at all.
I'm here to participate. I didnt come all this way just to watch.
