Finally Settled on a Lift and Tires
 
So after much research I think I have finally settled on a lift and tires that are within my budget.

Lift: Ill be going with the Rancho 2 inch Sport Lift with 9000XLs. It will give me about 2.25 inches in the front and about 1.75 inches in the back for a level and a lift. I am just curious if I will need anything else. A new trackbar, stabelizer, longer swaybars? Will I need longer brake lines if I buy discos and get a lot of articulation?

Wheels and Tires: I have been looking at 15x8 Level 8 Trackers and 33x12.5x15 duratracs. I don't know the exact bolt pattern and specs i need to buy on DTD for the trackers. Also I would just like to know what others think of this setup. I need a tire thats good for about 400 miles of driving for school, highway speeds, around town, wet and rainy, snow, and of course trails and mud. I usually only drive in about 3 inches of snow but I have driven in 6-8 inches of storm if I NEED to get around. I am about 99% on road but trying to get more off road.

If anyone can think of anything else I might need for this setup, what they think of it for a first time jeeper, etc etc.

Thank you WF

I'm about 400 miles into my Duratracs and I love 'em. I haven't had them in snow yet, but they are nice and grippy on wet roads. And they aren't terribly loud. There is a hum, but it's very faint, even at 70 mph with the doors off. I've wheeled them very lightly and I'm happy with that performance so far.

The bolt pattern for a stock JK is 5 on 5" or 5-127. If you call DTD, they will make sure that you end up with something that will work.

Also, I bought my jeep in November with a 3 year extend warranty. I then had it fixed for JOG in December. What parts will be the most strained by the lift and tires and should I be worried about running into and warranty issues or a fight with the dealer to replace warrantied parts? My fried has a 4dr with a 2.5 in lift and 33s and he blew his front 30 and rear 44 and got them replaced under Chryslers limited lifetime drive terrain.

Bump for more info. Also, any vendors selling this for a good price?

amazon...total w/ shipping to my area is 455.00, and an employee from 4wp says their gonna have sales this weekend during jeep truck fest. i'm getting the same lift and spending $$ this weekend.

you won't need anything else with this kit, maybe some quick discos if u plan to go offroad. contact "jeep matt" for more personal questions since he takes his rig offroad very often and has the same kit.

Make sure you get the correct P/N for the 2 door. There are a lot of good deals out there on this system, FYI. The one on Amazon maybe/could be for the 4 door. We are still trying to get this sorted out with Amazon, FYI.
