    BUT if you really want a 4" lift, look into the Currie or Savvy offroad 4" kits. Great quality stuff. Skycrapper, Rough Country, Fabtech, Procomp all are terrible
    I wouldn't say that Rough Country is terrible for a TJ, but definitely falls into the "you get what you pay for" mindset.

    Just don't get their coils or shocks. Their shocks are rough and their coils sag. The flex joint control arms are decent. I run them on the front of my LJ. I will eventually change their flex joint to a Johnny joint once it wears out, but it's been good for the 16k miles I've put on them.

    You guys rock!

    I was just about to ask about ProComp next. That's off the list now, too.

    I've read good things about Old Man Emu (ARB holds a lot of respect across the off-road world). But a limit of 2" of lift doesn't give me a lot of desire to go with that. Though, I get what you're saying about going with the 1" of body lift.

    So, Currie is good on lift kits, but less so on their axles?

    When it comes to the TJ, I have heard nothing but great things about their lifts and control arms.

    Currie and Savvy work together to make similar products. You might want to check into the savvy dual adjustable aluminum johnny joint control arms, currie track bars, bilstein 5100 or rancho 9000xl shocks, and currie 4" coils.

    Here's the link to the currie kit on the savvy site, but you might want to search around the site for the aluminum arms

    In regards to the 2.5" lift with 1.25" bl, I ran that combo on my previous TJ on 35s and it worked great. It kept the center of gravity low, which was wonderful for the off camber situations. Throw on hiline fenders, it'll create a ton of room for articulation or 37s

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.
