Got my wheels and tires delivered today. Had to order from 4 Wheel Parts whine they were on sale. Went with ProComp 8101 in 17x9 with BFG AT in 315/70r17 (basically a 35x12.50).
Now I have to choose a lift kit. I was first leaning toward the Rough Rounty 3.5" kit that cones with front lower control arms, because it's inexpensive asy $500 and has great reviews, but I've also heard of people complaining of spring sag with it. Next, I started looking hard at the the RK 3.5" flex kit, but damn it's expensive, plus I have to add my own shocks and bump stops.
What other options should I look at in 2.5-3.5" kit for around $1000 plus or minus a couple hundred. Would be ideal if it included shocks and bump stops. I understand that ill probably have to use exhaust spacers or a y pipe regardless, but I'd prefer to not replace my front drive shaft right away. I'm looking to get something with front lower control arms to correct the geometry for on road driving, otherwise I'd just go with a cheap budget boost.
So, Rubicon Express? Metal cloak? Terra Flex?
It's my daily driver and hunting rig with mild off road every month or so. Needs to be comfortable enough to run up and down the interstate, but capable enough off road to ride mild trails with some ground clearance for stream crossings and what not.
