If anything I'd go with this one and a 1" body lift... then spend some decent money on good shocks.

Try our vendor section here, but here is an example of what I am talking about:
Rubicon Express - RE7003 3.5 Super-Flex Free Monotube Shocks upgrade to adj front track bar and adj lower control arms.. and you should be good to go.. YOU might need a SYE with this.

wow calm down for a bit. I know you're excited but calm your self down enough not to rush to things that you might regret soon after the excitement of being 4" taller eases up. Do some research first. There is plenty of material on this forum to set your mind fairly straight on what to buy and what not to buy.

RE also has my vote..

i have the procomp 2ich lift now. my shop has got a spot open wed next week. that means i have to order the parts tomorrow to ensure proper delivery. like i said my buget is 1000 but i have a little play. if i spend more here i have to spend less there. i would buy a better lift vs getting skidplates and stuff. i actually have about 2100 total but 600 is already spent

well i still have stock axles f30 &r35. i have an air locker in the rear. i've been running a 2inch pro-comp lift i've been running for about a year and it's toasted. i bought a light bar, bumpers, winch, all new ball joints and u-joints. a have a heavy duty rock crawler steering kit in it. i also bought some mt/r 35's off a buddy. i plan on doing new axles and body lift come tax time. i do although have to decide what lift. i've been pouring over thread after thread for weeks and going through 4wd for weeks. i've a very impulsive buyer. bad for me. i scheduled to have my lift put in a month ago, but still have not purchased one. it's crunch time for me. i just don't want to end up regretting my purchase.

this is what i have wanted the whole time but i'm worried my decision is wrong.
jks front and rear lower control arms. about $600
ome trail blazer kit, about $800 with the HD shocks
that ends up being around $1350
i just hope if i order these pieces that i don't end up needing a SYE cause the money is gone till march.
does this sound like a respectable kit to you guys?
i use my tj as a dd, but i go out with my friends almost every weekend and end up driving around a lot of the big step ups or deep mud hole cause i just never make it through. i want to stay in line and stop taking the wussy routes.
