My JKU came from the dealership('07) with a F/T 3" lift. It's a decent lift, if you dont plan to add bumpers, winch, or anything else. The springs ( especially the front srpings are way to soft for any additional weight. With in three months of buying my jeep I built a pretty heavy winch bumper w/ stinger and mounted a Ramsey 8k winch. This lowered the front by almost 2". I soon after replaced the front springs with 4" superlift springs(which is what is in it today).
If you go with the Full traction, no, you wont be disapointed. How ever, know that if you add a winch, or a bumper to the front you will be replacing the front springs.
Also, go ahead and throw the trackbar relocation brackets in the trash and buy some adjustable trackbars from Teraflex and the Trackbar bracket braces!!! Also, I ditched the sway bar disco's that came with the lift pretty quick and went with Rubicon Express......
So, the front springs are junk, as are the TB brackets and disco's, but the lift is okay? Having a hard time following the logic there! If I bought a lift, and half the parts sucked, I'd call it Rough Country, I mean, garbage! Same thing, really
FT has a bad rep on this forum partly for their association with the "other" forum, and partly because their stuff has often been junk. They've had bushing issues, spring issues, and JKF issues- that all totals up to garbage in my book.
Anyway, OP, there are tons of great lifts out there, and you DEFINITELY get what you pay for. Pony up the extra coin and get a premium lift by a reputable company- you'll never regret it! Mark W.
