JEEPDON, your JK is a 2010, and Stevil's JK is a 2014, which has a different transmission, with a much lower overdrive gear ratio than yours. 5.38s are a great choice for your JK, but not so much...

The more time you spend on the highway, the lower gears you want in that Jeep. The problem is that the top gear is too high for that engine to pull that tall of a gear, even on flat ground with a...

I've felt death wobble on other vehicles, but never seen it. So that's kind of like seeing a Yetti. You always hear about them, but never see one.

Take a look at Synergy's long arm lift. It is bolt on, and has about the best control arm geometry you're going to find. The control arms also use quality Currie Johnny Joints at one end, and...

Changing to a lower gear ratio would help. For 35" tires with a 3.8 powered JK and (I presume) an auto transmission, you will want gears that are pretty low. I went with 5.38s on my 2010 JK, and it...

I had an AEV installed 6.4 Hemi in my last JK. I liked the power, and drivability was good. Resale value was excellent. The Hemi cost $30K to install, and I got $30K more out of it than I would...

There are a lot of good recommendations on this thread. One thing that I would add, is to try to avoid going through this whole process several times. It isn't uncommon for people to spend a lot of...

The Tera spec Fox shocks work very well with Tera coils. Those are the coils they were specifically valved to work with, and they're some of the best tuned shocks you can get for a JK. I've got a set...

YES, you can run the Teraflex spec Fox shocks without coilovers. Those Fox shocks were valued specifically for the Tera coils, and they work awesome; probably the best shocks you can get for a JK.

BigHud,
I've built a number of Jeeps, and have used most of the current suspension systems at some point (including Rubicon Express). My current JK is JK #7 for me, and I must say it is by far the...

Use a Teraflex tailgate hinge and tire carrier. You don't need a tire carrier bumper. Most are ginormous Rube Goldberg design winners that are too heavy and rattle too much anyway.

I did the speaker upgrade thing in a 2012 Wrangler Sport. I changed from stock speakers to kicker speakers in the sound bar. I also thought it was worse than stock.
