    Looking at lifting JKU

    I have a 2014 JKU, have been researching lift kits and can't decide which to go with, currently looking at Old Man EMU 2"…I had an '07 JK and put on the Teraflex 2.5" BB…just wondering if it's worth the extra money to go with new springs and shocks or go with another BB? This will be a daily driver and looking to run 33's.

    Rancho 2" sport kit with the 9000 shocks. Right now Rancho has a rebate. Perfect kit for running 33" tires. Look on Amazon for them under 400 bucks. Comes with front springs, bump stops, brake line extensions and rear pucks and 4 shocks that you can adjust to your liking. Pretty complete kit to run. And made in America

    If you're just looking to run 33's, I personally would just get another spacer lift with shock extensions. They are dirt cheap and will keep you from needing to address your front drive shaft.

    I'm ready to order this kit myself to put on the wife's jeep. A guy can get it for 330 bucks after rebates. That's a he'll of a deal. You can't buy the shocks alone for that price.

    It will see some wheeling, Silver Lake sand dunes a few times a year and whatever else comes up. I have a small tent camper we haul up north, and we will be running some two tracks. Nothing radical though. Mostly hauling kids around town.

    Yeah, that really is a hard deal to beat.

    If you check out ranchos Facebook page, they have a photo album if just the 2"kit. See if you like the stance of some of those rigs.

    Didn't even look into Rancho's lift, I have had there lifts on solid axle old Chevy's and they were stiff to say the least. I will defiantly check into them.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
