    2 inch lift and Beadlock or non beadlock for my 37s

    Couple of things I need the the higher internet voice provided here to help me decide, I am stuck between the rancho 2 inch sport lift with 9000xl shocks and the dynatrac sport lift for my 19 JL. I appreciate all comments and input here and I am also trying to decide beadlock or no beadlock 17 inch wheels. I run a lot of fire roads and logging roads, some time in sand dunes and definitely plan to spend time at Moab but will be relocated elsewhere for my job soon. I have it narrowed down to a 4.5 inch to 4.75 inch backspace. Was looking at kmc machete or fuel Anzo wheels. I like a good stance, tough and functional look. And hate to admit this is my commuter for the time being. Any thoughts or inspirations?

    If your going to buy new wheels you might as well get bead locks.

    Thanks, I try to follow as many threads on both sites as possible but it is difficult to sift through everything. I have read install forums and seen pictures. It is just difficult to know if you would be happy with a $730 lift with adjustable shocks or if the dynatrac really has it figured out so it is worth the premium. FWIW I went ahead and ordered the dynatrac.

    The Machetes only come in 3.5" backspacing. I think Trail Ready will have the largest variety of configurations, but you'll likely have to wait on them for quite a bit.

    Machete Desert comes in 4.75 backspacing.

    Trail Ready can do just about any backspacing but they are months behind right now. Raceline also has some backspacing options.

    Machete Desert is 17x8.5 and Machete Crawl is 17x9.

    KMC lists the Machete Desert as not fitting but other than width and BS, the specs look the same

About us
wayoflife is a moniker that Ive 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.
