Lift combo question
 
1 Attachment(s)
I've decided to do a 2.5" suspension lift and a 1" body lift. *(I think)
Will I be able to run 33's with this combo? Do you recomend this combo. What do you guys think of Rough Country kits? Would I need to make any further mods to accomodate the lift? I've had this new Jeep for almost 2 months and I've done nothing to it. It's driving me crazy!

Yea not a bad combo for doing a lift, if your doing the BL, might as well do the MML (Motor Mount Lift as well), will help with drive line angles as well as any future plans for doing a Tummy Tuck or Belly-up T-Case skid.

I would recommend the RE BB (Budget Boost) though over the Rough Country one. Or look at the OME 2" spring lift as well

Is the RE BB just a coil spacer lift? Though Rough Country comes complete with springs, shocks (2.2), and transfercase spacers. Is this brand no good?

If I was to start over with my 06 LJ - I would go with one of the OME combos from Rokmen. Level 2 would be best, but Level 1 would work too for under 1K. Go for the ZJ/LJ springs. Has the JKS quicker discos too! Call them - they are very helpful.

Prices seem rather high.

Ya think? I priced it out separately with the best prices I could find in a hurry.

Old Man Emu 2.5
* Front and Rear Coil Springs
* Front and Rear Shocks
* Rear Trackbar Bracket
* Rear Bumpstop Spacers - Northridge 4x4 = $629.95

* JKS Quicker Disconnects - most places about $140
* JKS 1.25" Body Lift - best price about $120
* JKS 1" Budget Motor Mount Lift " " " $ 58

. $947.95

That's pretty close to the Rokmen price. Like $2 difference. I'm sure you could find a better deal if you shopped around more though. I just thought the convenience of getting it all at once was good. :)

Also DPGoffroad has a great set up with JKS and OME products.

Look at the Ultimate TJ/LJ Wrangler Kit. You can also swap out the spring for the ones of your choice. Your being a LJ I would suggest the ZJ front coils and LJ rear OME coils.

DPGoffroad site here ---> OME TJ/LJ Kits Dirk knows his stuff.

I run a custom "type" version of the Ultimate kit. Works great with 33's.

Also with being a LJ you will not need a T-case drop with 2.5'' lift.

I lifted my LJ higher in the front. 3" Rusty's springs and a 3/4 spacer, 2" Rusty's springs in the rear. It is still an inch taller from the flare to the tire in the rear. I bought some skyjacker shocks and its done. The axles are a little off center...maybe 1/2 inch or so. It looks great and rides great. The shocks were ~$135 and the springs were $110 and $100. I think I paid ~$30 for the spacers. I already had a 1" BL on it.

So you just bought all these parts seperatly? Interesting. Where did you purchase? Your LJ looks very good. What size tires you running.
