New 2015 JKU Tank Owner in Cape Coral, FL

Just wanted to say hi. I'm new to WF and looking forward to some good advice using this forum for my new Wrangler. This is my first JK Jeep and I'm hooked already. I'm from Indiana and have been wheelin all my life. Looking forward to hearing about some cool spots in SWFL to wheel. So far ive read probably hundred posts about lifts and suspension here on WF. Amazingly enough i'm still indecisive about what lift i should get. I just got Fuel Full Blown 17X9 4.5 BS with 35x12.5/r17 General Grabbers. I want to do mild trails and its a daily driver, so i'm leaning toward a budget boost. 2.5" seems adequate according to what ive read. But im unclear if a 3"-3.25" is going to cause drivetrain breakage with daily driving and occasional mild trails? Does 2.5 budget boosts require anything for proper alignment or can you bring into shop and get it aligned with my new tires?

Its my understanding that once you get over a 3" lift, this is where you start having to mod other things. However, because this is the newbie check-in area, you may not get the answers you are looking for. I suggest you check out this forum area and post your questions there, I think you'll get a better response.

In the mean time, I just like to say . . .
