Perfect, I can handle that.

I gained 2 inches in the front, and an inch and a half in the rear.

There are even a bunch of less expensive options out there. I must be missing something... Please help me!
I run the Dietech brackets as well. They're awesome. I used to run the a pillar mirror mounts and hated them. The mirrors were almost useless for me.

It has 3.5" MC Dualrate springs and the JKS ACOS to get rid of a little bit of a rake that it had. 5160 reservoir shocks, Synergy Tie Rod, Drag Link, Drag link flip kit. Artec truss, Synergy c gussetts. It is close to about 3.75" of lift. 4" of lift and it would explode so I wanted to make sure not to go over.

Thanks, it's Rock Krawlers 3.5 mid arm kit. The lift is stout and very well put together. Kind of a challenge to install though, atleast for me.
