Wink My Suspension Lift // Tire decision

So after a very long time of searching and thinking I decided on what Suspension I am going with and ordered it today. I ordered my wheels and tires last week and picked them up today aswell. Sitting outside right now BFG A/T 33x12.50x15, Ultra 164 Matte black wheels. I'll post a pic of those later. But the lift i decided to go with is the Rough Country 'Jeep TJ 4" X-Series Suspension.'

I added a few things to the kit, here they are:
1) Perf 2.2 Shock Upgrade
2) NP231 SYE
3) CV Rear Driveshaft
4) Perf. Steering Stabilizer
5) 4 Black Shock Boots

Here's the pricing I paid so you guys can get an idea if you're looking to do something similar.

Wheels & Tires altogether (For 5 wheels/tires mounted and balanced) = $1,550
RC 4" X-Series Suspension (with additions I mentioned & shipping added) = $1,732.15

Total = $3,282.15

Heck yeah especially with the 2 good uprgades you chose

2) NP231 SYE
3) CV Rear Driveshaft

You may or may not like the 2.2 shocks (some like em some do not) You could always change them for comfort and better quality later once you see how it rides.



I don't wear shock boots you may like the look without them Im guessing they were free?

You hit them up for free shirt or anything I would have!!

Haha no, I didn't. I should've but oh well :P. I will make a review about the shocks and the set, I hear their new products are well improved. and not many have reviewed their new control arms so I'll do that.
