The jeep seems to ride slightly better than the stock suspension and the price was around $300. RC also offers a 3.75in combo lift, which is the 2.5 suspension and 1.25 body. Should have went that route to begin with. Good luck.
How long have you had it? Do you have the new 2.2 Performance shocks?

Your sig says your running 31s like I am. Do you have some non-wheeling pics of it that you could send me?

I like the low center of gravity approach too. That's one reason why I'm only looking at 2 and 2.5 inch lifts. Eventually I would like to do a tummy tuck for even more ground clearance.

I have never heard anyone say anything bad about the Old Man Emu stuff.

That sounds like the perfect setup, Steve-O.

Almost exactly my plan. But I am thinking:

2.5" coils, 1" BL, 1" MML for the TT. then the rest as you mentioned.

Building a capable off road Jeep is easy...building a street legal one that you can drive two hours away to wheel and then drive to work the following morning is the challenge.

You can buy just coil pairs from BDS. 3" coils for the front were $115 and 2" for the rear were $109. They are good springs and have a lifetime warranty....

Could be worse.... The post could have been made showing pictures of his new 2" spacer lift. Thought is a good thing.

2.5" of suspension lift is really all a TJ needs. It will accomodate 33's for now and 37's later.

Thats a very nice lift for that route, but taking that route is far from the best (esspecially for a TJ).
