You are a very fortunate man. I'm finally getting some money flow so hopefully I can keep up on the mods. Get some good before pictures.

Thanks. I've had a few breaks lately financially including a promotion at work. Plus I'm lucky my wife understands, and is ok with it.

Nice I've heard good things about them plus I bought my lift from them at their open house a couple of weeks ago and I won a door prize that day from them for a free bestop safari top and windchannel. How can I not like them. I just hate that I have to wait since I got the cash burning a hole in my pocket waiting.

Can always do like I did, install it yourself. I don't have a garage or a driveway, did it while parked in the street in west Denver. Not ideal but got a body lift, mml, & 4"long arm kit done. Then I took it back too them to get the lower control arm brackets welded, full alignment, & double check my work. They said it was great. Saved myself over $2,300 on install.

I have zero interest in doing it myself. I've never even changed oil on a car in my life (sad i know).They're charging me pratically nothing for the lift and alignment.

Patience, grasshopper, patience. I think you are going to have a really sweet setup. Don't know much about JK's but on a TJ two and a half is the ideal spring lift. go much over three and you're asking for trouble. Whatever else you need you can do with a body lift. You're definitely set up for 33's, one inch body lift and maybe a little trimming on the fender flares and you'd be good for 35's. Glad for you that your wife is so understanding. I'm usually in the quiet resignation state, even though I do nearly all my own stuff...

So what kind of trouble can I look forward to with my 4" long arm kit?

Yeah the 2 1/2 is all I'll need. Bigger than that than you have to start upgrading the DS. They also say a body lift is bad on the jk's. So it's this plus eventually quick discos then protection and recovery mods. It'll be my little journey

A long arm suspension drastically reduces the angle of the links, which reduces bump steer so that factor is taken out of the picture. That, combined with a dropped pitman arm to flatten the steering geometry should set you up so that you really shouldn't have any issues.

not picking on anybody, but i'm kind of blown away about the idea of being into jeeps, but not into working on them and doing the work yourself.

i mean... paying somebody to install a lift kit has to cost a lot of money. like enough that you could go by all the tools you would need to do it. and then you'd have the pride of doing it yourself, and you get to keep the tools, and if something ever happens you'll know how to fix.

ya play some tunes, drink some beer, wrench around in the garage... that stuff is fun!! i mean heck, i'll even help out.

The jeep is my only ride so I won't risk learning on it unless I'm supervised by someone who knows what they are doing.

Jeeping and wrenching are 2 different things. I work on my own rig but sometimes people have different skill sets. I would never break open a computer and work on it. yet I use one every day. you have to stick to what you know. i mean if you don't know how to wrench then by all means take it to someone who does. why would you want to dive into something you know nothing about??? it is a lot safer and a lot less frustrating for the owner as well as the trail buddies if it is done right in the first place. if a guy likes to wrench and play tunes and drink beer then good for him but if a guy don't good for him too.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with taking it to a qualified shop.

Oh my jeep has been in the shoppe going on a month now getting some serious upgrades... And I'm glad that I have professionals doing the work. Some of us don't have jobs that afford us the time to work on our own rigs, like it or not. But I'll never turn down a chance learn.
