Here's a couple of pics of my wife's jeep with a Currie leveling kit with 35" tires. I also used wheel spacers with stock rims. Then cut your fenders to fit.
If you don't want to cut the fenders you can fit 33" tires.
I love the flex. Obviously disconnected? Can you tell me the part number for this kit? Just bought a Teraflex Leveling Kit going to add with my 18/59 springs.

I'm telling you, I've had no troubles with them and for the money it's a no brainer. I'm no "HARD CORE WHEELER" but I've not stepped down from a trail the big boys have done either. I'm deff having fun tho. I also have heard their customer service is great too. Good luck man. Let us know how you make out

SoCalChris I went with the rough country 2.5" lift, came with springs, shocks, track bar relocate and front disconnects. It rides as good as stock. If I remember correctly it was around $360 shipped to my front door. Its prob the most hated lift you'll read about, but I've nothing but good luck with it and so far I've been able to wheel with guys that have the "expensive cool guy" lift. Real simply to install. Took me about 3 hours total in my garage. Good luck

DaK 2" should do ya okay, get some 35's under that with no problem.

I use these guys.

JK Suspension Systems

Good thing about them is that when you are ready to upgrade, you can just add on to what you have. Ask for Jason. Guy knows his stuff and he is great help to get what you want. No upselling.

Eddieh113 Right now I'm looking at the skyjacker 2" budget boost, coil spacers, bump stops, and shocks. Right now I not to hardcore with off road, been going to the dunes a lot and that's about it so far.
01-18-2013 02:59 PM
DaK What kind of wheelin ya intend to do?

Fire roads
Rock crawling

Tires? What size ya looking at?
01-18-2013 02:15 PM
Gunner 350 is only going to get you a cheap budget boost. If you don't want to pay twice I would say you might want to look into one of the spring and shock packages. My buddy got a bb and it is coming back out a month later. Going to a OME kit. Not that it didn't work, it did, but it was rougher than his wife liked as far as ride quality. Make sure that what ever you get you add shock and sway bar extensions as well as longer brake lines. Bb will do ok if your not going to go hard core for a while.

Oh yeah welcome to the forum and come on some runs.
