Military Wrap Springs HELP!!!

Hey all,

I'm ordering a lift for my YJ and I have no idea what the advantages are to the miltary wrap springs. I will not be wheeling my YJ hardcore. Trail riding, maybe some light off roading, definitely not building a rock crawler or gonna be doing any serious rock crawling. This thing is my daily driver and spends 80 % of its time on pavement with 20% wheeling. Money is tight and I cant really justify the extra $200 for the miltary wrap over the standard unless there is a serious advantage. TIA You guys(and girls) rock!!!

If ur not doin serious crawling then I wouldn't get the military springs save the extra 200 bucks. I have a 4 inch pro comp and I wheel every weekend and have no issues. Save the 200 bucks and save for a winch. But that's my opinion.

A military wrap is another wrap around the bushings by the secondary spring. The idea is that if the main spring breaks, the bushing is still captured by the secondary and you can limp home. It is hardcore and usually not necessary for the Wrangler unless you are wheeling with serious weight or slamming down on some major rocks.
