CactusRed Thanks for the welcome!

We expect it will be 6 weeks before the Jeep arrives - that's a looooooooooooong time to wait!

The Orange Crush was an easy choice - the only other color we'd have considered isn't available yet - the Gecko green.

The Eibach coils are under $300.00 - pretty reasonable. Puck lifts offer no improvement in ride or performance, so IMO, that's not an option. From what I understand, anything over 2" requires modification to the exhaust system. We purchased the Life Time B to B warranty, so I'd prefer to not alter anything like that.

Baseline 4x4 Outfitters Good to see you here and gratulations on the purchase of your new JK. The orange crush color is awesome. Enjoy it.

WranglerRiver I bought a 4" Rough Country lift for my TJ. I am extremely happy with it and it works great. They are alittle less expensive than other brands. But since you are gonna leave ur Rubi mostly stock, why would you put high dollar coils on it? I would check to see if they make 2". Great shooks at a great price! Good luck

Hello!

I'm known as Crawler#976 on other boards. We're new owners of a soon (we hope) to be deliverd Orange Crush JK Unlimited Rubicon.

I've been a Toyota hard core trail guy (the trails off Table Mesa Rd, AZ and the Hammer trails back in 2001 to 2007). Once that wore off, we've gone back to our exploration and historic day trips, with longer trips supported by our StarCraft RT10 trailer. I've been poking around the Prescott, AZ. area since 1976.

My primary rig is our expedition preped '09 Power Wagon, Cactus Red. The Rubicon will be daily driven by my wife - it's replacing her '05 Tacoma. It will also take over for most of the weekend trips. The PW is an awesome truck, but it gets 8 to 9 MPG when aired down. It's not uncommon for us to spend $80.00 or more for fuel on a short day trip.

Current plans for the Rubicon are to leave it close to stock - perhaps a 2" coil lift and a true 33" tire, perhaps 255/80-17 BFG KM2's, will be added.

Can anyone recommend a quailty set of 2" springs? I've looked at the Eibach coils, but haven't found much more than that.

Thanks,

Mark
