Newbie, Currie long travel budget boost?

Hey Guys and Gals,

So first post. My wife and I just picked up a 2010 surf blue unlimited. We are stoked! I used to have a built XJ and it is nice to be back in Jeep.

I tried searching, but I didn't find too much information on it. Anyone have any experience with the Currie long travel budget boost? We are getting a set of basically 33.5's on 17x9 wheels. I want to keep the lift as low as possible while still having good flex offroad and good road manners.

Thoughts? Suggestions? This is my wife's daily driver so don't want to go too crazy on it. Thanks again and love the site.

Cheers,
Andy

Wow

31 views and no one has any suggestions? If anyone has suggestions on a lift that is under 3" please let me know. When I search on the board I get mixed results. I know the TF kits are nice, but I don't think I need that much lift.

What about Old Man Emu?

Thanks guys.

I am running the Teraflex 2.5" coil lift on my rig. With bumpers and a winch, it perfect with 35's jsut a bit of rubbing when wheeling.

Not complaints with the Teraflex product so far. I'm not sure if many people on here have run the Currie long travel kit. If you end up buying it, let us all know!

What makes it a "long travel" kit?

Thanks

Thanks guys.

To my understanding the LT kit increases travel with the sway bars still attached. I was looking at doing the rear kit with stock springs and aftermarket shocks. Then maybe OME front coils? I don't think the front kit makes sense since I'm planning on doing swaybar disco's. I'm looking at doing a 2" lift roughly.

Spillidge-The TF kit looks good. I just don't plan on running a winch for some time and only have 305's right now. I like the LCG of a smaller lift and also the look of bigger tires with minimal lift.

Thoughts? Thanks again.

Cheers,
Andy

Rock Krawler are making a pretty nice looking 2.5" lift as well. There is a thread on here.

You cannot change flexibility with keeping the sway bar attached without physically changing the sway bar. I looked at their kit, it is no more of a "Long travel" compared to any other kits. Most kits do include longer sway bar links for proper sway bar performance. However you should be disconnected when off roading anyway..

"long travel" is a hoax as far as I am concern with the currie kit
