Just remember, the Jeep is never gonna ride like a Caddy. It's always gonna be a little rough/bumpy. It's just the nature of the beast.

x2 on getting a longer driveshaft. To do this, you need a SYE, custom double-cardon rear driveshaft, and rear upper adjustable control arms.

Superlift has been known to ride rough. Probably the shocks.

jrussblues Im running a 2" bb + a 1" bl. Plenty of room for 33's and keeps it low. A 4" gets much more complicated and depending on your factory axles much more pricey to run 35's...depending on how you plan to use them. If I do anything else its regear, high clearance fenders, 35's and ox lockers. No more lift. But again it all depends on what you want and how much $$ you want to spend.

x2. I may end up doing a SYE/CV later on to rid my Jeep of the horrid t-case drop. Idk if a MML would get it done for me...
