Rock Krawler Suspension Lift Questions
 
I just ordered the Rock Krawler 3.5" Entry Level Suspension System. My question is do I need to change anything else out i.e. brake lines, drive shafts or will I be able to get by with my stock parts? Does the RK system include everything I need?

Just ordered:
Rock Krawler 3.5" Entry Level Suspension System
Bilstein 5100 Series Shocks
KMC KD778 Chrome Monster Wheels 18 x 9
Nitto Trail Grappler 35 x 12.50R18

I plan on putting the lift on myself (suspension lift rookie) but want to learn. So any help would be appreciated.

I spent endless hours researching everything and reading everybody's suggestion and opinions and the above list is what I came up with. I'm a daily driver with limited offroad (just when I go hunting). So let me have it, what do you guys think.

2door or 4 door? I have heard people say that over 3" lift on a 2 door can cause rear driveshaft issues but I am far from an expert on the subject. Personally I have a 3.25" rough country lift on it's way for my 2 door so i guess I'm going to find out lol

I have the same lift and installed it myself, it's pretty straight forward.

They say you dont need brake line extensions/new brake lines. I have been fine without them but I plan on purchasing some extensions from quadratec for a few extra bucks. I have a JKU and have had no drive shaft problems but I havent hit the trails very hard.

I also used those same shocks.

Steel... What size tires do you have on it?

Sadly I still have on the stock 16" wheels with the tires that came on them (roughly 29-30"). Come this weekend I will have a big 33, basically a 34.

A 305/70/17...I ordered it reluctantly. It comes out to about 33.8, when I'm feeling under equipped its a 34 (around the ladies ya know).

:) Yea, thats about right, but whatever tire pressure you run will decide what the installed size is--measure it from the ground to the top/tread-
