i was thinking about doing the shackles and thats it for now what do you think?yeahi would suggest at least a 3", as you said. I'm runnin a 3" i think... and I like it, looks good with 32" tires... I might put some new shackles on there one day and step up to 33s or something, but I do like the look I have now, especially since it is a dd, and didnt want to go too big
x2soa is the way to go, rides nicer than stock and way nicer than any lift.
my first wrangler was a 4 banger and i did soa and eventually bigger. do it, you'll like it.
