    If you got the enforcer kit you would have a great lift to run 35's w/ full fenders and then you can keep the same lift for if you move to 37's. You would just need to cut your fenders and maybe extend your bumpstops a bit.

    Enforcer kit? Now you're talking actual lift kit right? I think my $200-$300 budget just died

    Yes and no. By getting the Enforcer now you would save that $200-$300 by not having to buy twice. All depends on your current end goals.

    And I could join the cool Enforcers Unite thread!

    Maybe in a few years. Right now I'm just trying to go to 35s and keeping the budget low. The budget boost and leveling kit in OP are both in the same ball park of each other.

    Assuming I stay in the $200-$300 range, which one would you do?

    My advice would be, if you like the feel of your current ride, go with the budget boost. It's a good, cheap way to get 35s underneath you without sacrificing stock ride quality. If you want something softer than stock, go with the EVO leveling kit. It will retain your stock feel in the rear and soften things up a bit in the front. If your heavy in the front you can just add a small spacer and still retain the softer ride. Either way, you will need to trim your fenders and possibly pinch seams depending on the year of your rig. Please keep in mind that depending on what factory gears you have, you may be looking at a regear with 35s as well. Good luck with your purchase!

    Well I already did the 2.5" BB & 35s route. I always recommend the BB if you like your factory ride quality.

    Edit: You do not need to trim your fenders if you go the BB route.

    Nope, your good to go with your pinch seams. Depending on how much flex you get, you may need to trim a few inches off your Rubi rails, but that's super easy to do. I should have known it was a 2014 given your screen name lol!

    In your defense, it could be a 2016 too

    Thanks for the info on pinch seems and rails.

    I'm kind of leaning towards that. Then put the Rancho shocks on and that can dial the ride softness in a bit more.

“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.
