    Also, been looking at different lift kits, tons of options and prices, which have you found that are best quality and best price. The current kit on my jeep is a cheap one and I want to change it asap just to be safe .

    It's not recommended to mix regular oil with synthetic oil as the synthetic oil has additives and the properties that are in those additives could interact and cause the oil to destabilize and thus cause internal damage, me personally i would run synthetic oil but if u are on a budget and can oil afford regular oil stick with a good brand like Castrol or Valvoline, as for the lift i have a Rough Country X-Series lift with dual stabilizers in the front it has been a very good lift and have had none of the problems that i have heard from other members.

    My god please stop.
    He is likely running a semi-synthetic oil which is perfectly acceptable.
    I would also not be recommending a Rough Country kit with dual stabilizers as OP is looking to upgrade, not downgrade.

    He was probably talking about a synthentic blend which I've seen a couple of companies make. This is not something you mix yourself. It comes premixed from the manufacturer. Basicslly it's cheaper than a full synthetic and lasts a little longer than conventional. I've used it before and seems okay, but I tend to stick with a full synthetic as it lasts longer.

    Lol, well said. I just took my steering stabilizer off today because it was causing a slight vibration in the steering wheel and also making a whining sound when making a left turn. I was freaking out that my brand new PSC steering box was acting up.
    I don't even know if I'll be putting it back on, it doesn't seem that I need it because all my shit is tight.

    Edit: it is a charged bilstein stabilizer, and it sits on a funky angle on my new tie rod.

    The last few posts I've read from you have been spreading misinformation and really poor advice.
    OP is looking for an upgrade, although you are happy with your kit it is lower end compared to most.

    Actually it's been factual advice and good advice seems like u have a disagreement with a certain product i like and that's fine, whats not fine is that fact your trying to incite drama and cause problems, and please let me know what misinformation cause i will gladly like to know.

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.
