1. The Coils
2. New Shocks (my skyjacker ones suck anyway) OME/Doshtech?? how bout a remote res type??? just asking
3. Remove rear sway bar
4. JKS Quick Disco's for the front
5. Possible T-Case Drop till i can afford sye and rear drive shaft and adjustable control arms
i think that would cover it to get me an xtra 1.5 inches to keep my tires outta the fenders
anyone opinions are welcome
I've got the 3.5" coils. Here's the way I did it:
1" body lift
1" motor mount lift (helps with the rear drive shaft angle a bit)
teraflex rear track bar bracket
Rubicon Express RE1600 front adjustable track bar
Rubicon Express rear extended links
RockKrawler front lower adjustable short arms (to correct the caster)
removed front sway bar completely
thats about it. Pretty simple setup. I can fit 35s with that and it does pretty good. The adjustable front lower control arms are important to fix the caster otherwise the death wobble can get pretty bad. All the other arms are stock and they flex really good.
I didn't drop the skid. But I have a rubicon without the slip yoke so I'm not sure if that made a difference or not. I'd try it without the drop first... you may not need it.
*edit: oh yeah, and new shocks. I can get the part number for the exact size I have if you need it. I had to experiment with a few different lengths.
