JK Lift Help

I am looking into lifting my first jeep, a 2010 Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. But I don't seem to know which direction to go. I would like to stay around the 1000 mark just on lift. I want to run 35's due to the fact that I just don't have the money to change the rear right now and lift it. But I'm not against the idea in the future of going to 37's or even bigger. I have been looking at RK and Teraflex and I like their products but I don't know if they need more parts to run properly. Any thoughts?

Metal Cloak has 2 systems I had not seen on their page before that may also interest you.
I am actually looking at the Elite for my 2014 Rubicon

RK 2.5" stock mod with Rancho RS5000X shocks. you can use hockey pucks for bumptstops and move rear swaybar links to the front and pick up a set of jks adjustable links for the rear and you should be under $1000. It handles on and off road great.

re

Defiantly made my options broader when I was trying to narrow the selection lol, I was looking at the 2.5 but I was thinking the 3.5 kit instead. Ill move on the price if its worth it. I don't want to do this again in a few months cause I wanted bigger

The good news is with your 2010, you can either go 2.5 or 3.5 height wise without doing driveline mods or exhaust mods like 12 and newer models. That is probably why you see so many 12 and up guys keying in on 2.5" lift heights...

For the 2.5" lift height we recommend you have at least something that corrects the front caster such as our 2.5" Flex System. For the 3.5" Lift heights we recommend front caster correction and the possibility of rear pinion correction. Everything we do is based on drivability to keep the handling as factory like as possible.

Hope that helps. Good luck with your build.

You sounds like you are sharp guy, trust your instincts. From what i've seen out there a lot of kits do come without components you NEED to lift the vehicle correctly. Shoot me a PM if you want some help...
