Can't Wait to get this done!!! Almost completed the budget for it and now if I dont hit any snags should be getting this within the next month or two.

Gunner Well things change. I bought a RK 3.5, mid arm kit. It came with the 2.0 RK shocks. Im running on 35's and no lift right now. The only rub is on the slider. Thats getting cut monday.

Randog I'll Let you know when I get all that stuff done and We'll definitely try to break something, or at least test the skids I'm gonna get!

Thanks to all you guys that posted. I really got a lot of good info and I am ready to make an informed decision.

I believe they are on 37's on their Jk with their fenders.
What size shocks do the MC kits (with the insane articulation) come with???

HyperBrad Hey Bob, My son ran 35" with a 2.5 inch lift with Fender Flares no problem, he went to 37" "guy thing", and put new spring to have 3.5" of lift runs awesome and put on wheel spacers not sure why "guy thing again what the Hell". I have a 4" Tera Flex 8 arm running 35" tires. When I get my flat fenders I am going up to 37" but with 37" I will defiantly need to brace and sleeve my front axle...

Good luck have fun see you on the trails.

josea1952 Also the MC lift does not state the requirement of a DS, but it is "only" a 3.5.
09-05-2013 06:03 PM
Gunner I just put in my order for a 2.5 OME lift to go with my new 35's. I backed off the real expensive Fox res and Rock Krawler 3 link lift. I need too much stuff done to bring it up to where my TJ was, Bumpers, winch, radio, rocker skids, armor. A 2.5 and 35's will do John Bull and Mottino. And I just fell in love with running the desert.
09-05-2013 05:55 PM
josea1952 Not to nit pick, I believe you mean caster?
09-05-2013 05:45 PM
Randog Hey Fernando,

You saw my Rubi with a 4in lift and 33s; it needs 35s at least. With a 4in lift you will need to change the front drive line so factor in another $150-200 bucks for that. Also with 4in as Ted was saying its kinda screws with your camber a little, mines off a little but I can deal with it but I need new adjustable arms to make it right. That's another $300 bucks.. Who said this was a cheap sport??

When you get it done lets take it out and see if we can break it!
09-05-2013 12:03 AM
josea1952 And the MC lift will work with 35's as well. I was just saying that it handles 37's well with their fenders.

I switched my lower fronts from TF to MC and noticed better smoother ride quality. It's great stuff.

I recommend a 3.5" long arm lift and 37s to do all the trails you want to do, including the rubicon. Is it needed, no, but you will be grateful in the long run. Rubicon Express use to make mopar lifts, so check with the dealer if they will accept the RE lift... some do... RockKrawler has a great product also... All I can say is do it the first time because you will always want the next best thing. I run 2.5" lift and 35s with flat fenders and I have no problems, but I am completely armored underneath... and I have had my share of "dang it I should have gone bigger or taller"

good luck and post pics when you decide!

Good to know! If I need any warranty work, I am going to see you... like the ticking on the driver side of my engine

It depends on tire size you want to go to. You can do a budget boost and up grade to 35" tires.

2 dealers in my area would agree with this statement. One has replaced parts under warranty even though they were damaged while wheeling!
