I just pieced my OME HD lift kit by purchasing the HD coil springs, F/R JKS track bars, Lower Front Adj Control Arms and Swaybar links and longer shocks & brake lines and did the lift myself.

If you are confused as to why I am mentioning going coil lift vs BB when you can convert a BB to Coil lift at a later date, is you will save a pile of $$$ & time going Coil Spring lift out of the gate vs BB if you are considering Bumpers/winch.

YES.

I think doing the BB for $200 before you decide on a full lift is a great way to:

1) Not spend too much money
2) See how necessary a lift is for you
3) Help decide how much lift you want
4) Educate you on the suspension geometry and how lifts affect it all

So if you buy a BB for $200 and then sell it off later for $120, then you're out $80 and you don't have a 4" long arm lift on your Jeep you regret.

Good luck in Getting $120 for a $200 used lift, max you will see is 50% of the value. My RE BB with shocks was $375 at the time...max I got back was $100.00 for the 4 -montube shocks and coil spacers.

I see it if you are planning on bigger tires & bumpers winch...shoot for a Coil Spring lift as the stock coils don't cut it for Weight (Sag like an 80 year old titties with bumpers/winch). IMHO you not only save getting one lift, but save on install time or labour to complete the work. It's simple enough to figure out how much lift by going on the FAQ on lifts to fit the size tires you plan on running and if you plan on running bumpers & winch, rack, etc and type of wheeling you are looking at a well ask other Jeep owners.

I actually wished I went straight to my OME HD coil spring lift as I had plans to run bumpers, winch & 35's and really no bigger than 3" of lift due to issues with ripping the rubber boot off the Driveshaft and I wanted Lower Center of Gravity for wheeling.

I would have saved about 8-9 hrs of my time not installing 2 lifts on my JKU and saved money on only one set of shocks in the end.

Each their own..but from my experience if you have future plans of bigger tires and added weight skip the BB's and head for a coilspring lift that will suit your needs.

Considering the Teraflex leveling kit with 33". At some point want to change out the front and rear bumpers. Is there a weight issue to consider when the new bumpers go on? What should be done to compensate?

You should look into a lift kit. The coils in the kit are made to support such added parts to compensate for weight. (front/rear bumper, winch, ect. )

But you don't have to put a lift on if you're not looking into heavy duty bumpers. For instance rugged ridge has some bumpers that only weigh in from 30-50lbs depending on if you want steel or aluminum. But then again the bumper I'm talking about is the rock crawler XHD

It's a half day and $200 to do a BB and if you don't like it you can get "50%" of your money back. Anything over 2.5" requires brake lines and end links. You can run stock shocks and see if you like the height and the ride. I'm completely happy with my BB and I have an AEV front bumper and Warn XD9000i with synthetic rope and HD hook. At this point I could put stock Rubi springs in and stiffen it up and get more lift. I got a full Rubi shock, spring, stabilizer setup sitting in the garage I bought for $40.

I'm 90% DD and do weekend trails marked 5 and below.

I used the Rubicon Express BB with the shock relocation brackets. It comes with bump stops. I am using the JKS Quicker disconnects up front for the 2.5" or more lift. They will adjust down to accommodate the 5° swaybar angle (factory specification).

If you have the money, do the extended shocks and skip the shock extension brackets. RE (Rubicon Express) has tons of kits and it gets confusing on part number based on what is in each kit.

RE was the Mopar supplier before Teraflex took over. Teraflex is a great company and their site is full of great info.

BB, 285/70/17 Duratracs, 1.5" wheel spacers on stock Jeep wheels, JKS Quicker disconnects. You will have to tweak your alignment, but it's two simple adjustments you can make yourself.

You get wider, grippier tires that are good in most conditions. You get some pumpkin clearance. It's the cheap way to tackle some mid level marked trails and still keep your OE ride and decent mileage.

A lot of people on this forum swear by 35's. It was a tough decision, but I'm very happy with the look and ride of my 2" with 33's. And this is all I need for my occasional foray into the great outdoors.

Looks good, thinking about 33's also when my 265/70/17's wear out.

Thanks. Was going to go with 315/70/17, which are closer to 35's until I saw the Jeeps in this thread. Yes, 35's look great, but there were so many trade offs that I was concerned about (rubbing, gearing, tailgate weight, etc.) that 33's just seemed like a better choice for me. Love the way it all came together and his it rides. It's only been a week so I haven't tested it off road... yet.

Crazy question...did you use a ProCal or something similar to adjust your speedo? If not, then your mileage is off for sure. With my 33's and leveling kit I could easily get 17-19 on the highway and as much as 20 if it was flat.

That's a very good point. I didn't do that so I'm probably off by a bit. I know my speedometer is off by about two miles an hour. I found that out with my gps. Completely stock I was getting about 17 with all city driving. Lift, tires, and a bunch of steel bolted on makes me think I'm probably still not getting that high of mileage though. Oh and sorry for the late response by the way.

I'm guessing once you do that, your mileage will definitely go up. I got close to the 17-19 range with my 33's depending I type of driving and terrain.

285/70/17 Nitto Terra Grapplers, on VTec Warlords (-12mm offset) 1.75 BB lift and 1.75 wheel spacers. These are P series. Majority of my driving is on pavement. The p285's are actually 32" high. Had I known, might have gone with 305's.
