Better yet check this out everything you need excepts axle upgrades. And the shocks thats a sweet deal IMO.

Can someone tell me how hard this install will be? I don't really want to pay 600 bucks for the install but i'm thinking it may be the way to go. Any suggestions? I know I will probably need to do some re-gearing but I'm sure I can get away with this for a while. I'm thinking 4.88 gearing, Would you agree? At that time I will add some lockers. I have learned this much reading other post and speaking to my friend that is a new member here. If i'm heading in the wrong direction please let me know.
Install is easier than you think trust me if you can turn a wrench you can do the install as far as gears go if you have a manual 4.88's will be ideal for 35's and good for 37's if you got an automatic tranny I would go deeper maybe a 5.13, but thats just me. If I had the money when I fixed my Jeep up I woulda got what you are looking at no doubts, you'll be happy with the setup and brand. Your brakes'll be fine people will move for you anyway its no biggy. Just be sure to upgrade to stainless steel brake lines which I'm sure the kit come with, just for the added brake pressure from bigger tires.

I would still regear to a 4.88 if manual or 5.13 auto. I would just get a Super 44 kit and a Super 30 kit with those gears and an ARB AirLocker. THat setup wih the lift package I showed would be great and I believe you would be extremely happy with it. Biut talk naround and see..........

You can't gear a D30 to 5.13. 4.88 is as deep as it can go.

I torn between the post you displayed and my original plan. The link you left includes a 1" body lift and I don't know if I want one or not.

The body lift is so the MM lift will work and thats a good thing with that much lift, it will help the drive shaft angle. You can always swap stuff in those kits too. You can take out the BL the MM lift and add shocks or something. I would just call and talk them they're great people to work with very polite and helpful. I've never had such great customer service.

Jason LaLiberty that owns 4x4Groupbuy is definitely great to work with. He used to be based out of AZ and that's where I bought my original suspension setup from. Any of the shops you deal with here in AZ you know they are wheelers too. Not just someone that owns a business.

I have 2 more questions. If you can help.

#1 The Shocks. At first I was being told to stick with the RE Mono. Because they were pre valved Now I'm being told I should go with the Rancho 9000 series. Can anyone give me some feedback on the better way to go.

#2 @ 3800 RPM's I hear and feel a bad vibration, Any Gear. Are my U-joints going out?

Like always Thanks in advance.

I would go with the RE Monos I have them and I'm so glad I got em. Get under your Jeep and grab the Drive shaft see if it wiggles while watching the U-joints. You might have to look real close to notice it though.

Update!

OK, I ordered the RE 5.5 kit that includes the SYE and Drive Shaft. I also ordered the RE Mono Shocks. I ordered it from 4X4 Group Buy (Thx Mike001) They were the best priced by far, and great customer service. I should be receiving it in this week. They are having trouble getting the goodyear MTR's so I will be looking locally for them. I would just like to thanks all of you for your advise in helping me make my decision. Hopefully I will see some of you soon on the trails.

Goodyear is still trying to recover from a strike they had a couple months ago. Demand for that tire is extremely high and most tire shops are just now starting to get a few trickling in here and there. In SoCal I'd say that Discount or America's Tire will be your best bet in finding some.
