Gonna rock that for a month or two then im not real sure on lift and all that yet but im thinking a Rock Krawler 5.5 coil over lift, 5.13 gears with ARB air lockers, on 37's, gusset and sleeve the front D30

5.5" is a lot of lift for 37s. RK also makes the coilover kit in 3.5, might be better for 37s with a bit of pinch seam trimming

2.5" is enough for 37s if you are willing to do some cutting on both sides of the rear wheel well.

Nice man!

What part of Austin are you in?

If you want to check out my JK I'm on a 2.5" Rock Krawler lift with 37s. No flares for reference at this point but I've got a little something in the works from Poison Spyder.

Taxes suck, but check me out before you order anything else. I'll hook it up and offset the taxes.

Let me know how beefing up that front 30 works over going with a prorock 44 or 60. I'm having a crisis over my front 30 and need to figure it out before I move ahead and and start giving Marcus alot of money. I got the cheapest 2dr I could within 100 miles of the Leigh Valley knowing I was going to build it. Now I say I should have got a rubi for the t-case and front 44. Oh well live and learn. Hope your build goes well and good luck. Looking forward to seeing how your build goes.

And I think 5.5 on 37's is fine. Looking lifted is cool and often over looked with the jk's. Everyone wants biggest meat and smallest lift. I say look lifted and build it accordingly.

I think this looks pretty damn good with 3.5 in and 37's figuring out the bump stops now. had to play with the steering stops abit and cut away a little fender inside the rear wheel well. But 5.5 will fit 40's with flat flares and that was to much for me.

I ran a 3.5 lift with 37s for 2 years I dragged my belly over everything
The low cog was cool but here in the east with the rocks the 3.5 was limiting where I could go
We are currently installing a Rk 5.5 on my jeep
I think it depends on the type of wheeling you do/plan to do

i agree on the 3.5 RK, more specifically the 3.5 Xfactor mid arm, then hell with flat fenders you'd be able to run 40s. I run a 2.5 BB with 37s. Definitely get with Marcus, he's a great guy and people from all over the world order from that guy. he rocks a bieber haircut but if you can get past that, he's a great guy. sorry, i just had to throw that in. LOL. I'm also somewhat local, and i plan on getting alot of trail riding in at Hidden Falls this fall once it starts to cool off some.
