    I've got the ultimate Frankenlift... Pieced together with EVO uppers, Currie lowers, Currie steering links, EVO front springs, and OME rear springs. I'd say it's definitely doable. 😎

    I did it that way because of cost, but also because I was able to get what I wanted. Lift packages tend to give a 2 door more lift than advertised, so by piecing it together I was able to dial it in for my specific needs. Even though the manufactures are different, everything works together very well. It took a lot of research and time, but I believe my end product is better than I could have achieved with a kit.

    Yea I'm thinking I like this idea.... I really love the ride of Ranchos springs. I definitely want Curries arms. Shocks are another matter then there's swar bar links.

    Exactly. As long as you know what you are doing and trying to achieve this can work. Also if you can find things second hand you can save some money too. The real benefit of a complete kit is that you can usually save a little bit of money by it all being packaged together vs. buying it all separately. When I was big into mountain biking (jeep took over that hobby) they were called groupos...haha.

    Only thing with going all Currie arms is there front uppers can't be adjusted on the Jeep.

    Hands down the best arms for the money. Awesome customer support. They color match their arms and will replace them for bent or failed components.


    I've had 3 jeeps mixed with all TF and JKS suspensions. Yes, TF can be stiffer than other rides, but put 800lbs worth of bumpers, winches, spare carriers and gear... then check your spring sag compared to "other spring setups."

    After all this 'lifting' are the arms adjustable to get pinion angle to stock? Forgive my ignorance I am new to Jeeping. However I am not new to suspension. When you start lifting and changing angles, shit starts wearing out or breaking, ex. U-joints. How is this avoided without adjustable parts?
    I have 18 JLU Rubicon and I want to lift it. However I don't want to start breaking shit because of ignorance.

    Yes most use adjustable lowers to achieve this.

    New member here and looking for some advice on lift kits for our new JLU. A little bit of background on us/our plans for use on the new rig. We mostly ride firetrails close to home. We are lucky to live in the middle of Michigan from the standpoint that there are numerous national forest trails within minutes of our house. These mostly consist of rutted up trail systems, some mud, some sand, lots of snow here soon, some fallen trees, etc... We will likely also start going to offroad parks with a ton of different obstacles (Never been rock crawling) and we love the Drummand Island trail system in the UP. This will be a trail rig mostly, but will still be driven to almost all of our adventures. Maybe if we did some out West travels we would trailer, but even doing the Kentucky trails we would prefer to drive it there.


    Let me know what you think about this setup:

    • STT Pro 37x12.5x17
    • KMC 229 Machete Beadlocks
    • EVO 3.5" JL Stage 1 Enforcer Overland Kit
    • EVO Front Lower CA
    • Currie Rear Upper CA
    • Currie Front Trackbar
    • Falcon 3.3 Adj Shocks 2-4.5" Lift


    We are looking for something that will give good flex, nice ride, and be reliable as can be. My wife likes to run the fireroads with some speed, so need something that can absorb the bumps. Also something that can be easily upgraded as our abilities and tastes change over time. (Also as factory items wear/break we will upgrade them as well) Is there any thing I'm missing here, or something that would be a better fit in the same or lower price range? Currently sitting @ $3550ish retail pricing (Lift only) on this setup.


    I would appreciate any input/real world experience on this or another lift setup that may suit our needs better.

    Thanks,

    Chris
    It all sounded good until you said Falcon.......... Rancho or Kings are your best options. Everyone I have ran across on the trail loves both.

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.
