x2...33's will fit on 2-2.5" of lift, with a 1" BL and 1" front bumpstop extensions, and 1.25-1.5" rear bumpstop extension.

06bluebeast you said complete kit and then continued to say transfer case drop....
stick with a small suspension plus body lift, or get a 3-4" kit and add sye and cv shaft. you will thank yourself down the road

Tackelbarry I agree with rda616, If you want top quality go with Old Man Emu. I have the 2 1/2" lift kit with their newest shocks and it is great. Call Dirk at www.dpgoffroad.com and he will walk you through the process. He will help you customize your kit based on the weight, which will include the other accessories you plan to add to the front or back of your Jeep. This is my second OME lift and I will never install anything else. Hope this helps.

newbie needs help picking a lift kit.

hey guys i am a new jeep owner. i just bought a 2004 wrangler x and it is currently completely stock, and of course it needs a lift kit and bigger tires. my problem is that there are about a million different ones and i dont know where to start. i know this i want to run at least 33s maybe 35s and i dont want to sacrifice anything that i dont have to. i would like to keep a good ride quality and drivability. i am not going to wheel it too hard so i dont know if i can justify the cost of a long arm kit. whats yalls thoughts on size and brand? i have looked a little bit at rough country and some at bds and a little at skyjacker. i do know that i want to buy a complete kit with coils, shocks, upper and lower control arms, transfer case drop, drop pittman arm, brake line and whatever else i need. anybody that can give me any suggestions and their expirences with any certian kit or brands would be greatly appreciated.
