decided lower or lift.....

Hey everyone, so I couldn't take it anymore. After watching all the lifts and nice looking ort8's i decided its time. So today on my home from work I ordered RC 2" lift. I will be installing next week after I get it of course. I was wondering what else to do other then just installing the spacers.

no you cant, it will tear your front end apart.

as for what else to do- what do you plan on doing with your rig? any offroading or you just plan on daily driving it?

Re: decided lower or lift.....

I could have sworn I posted this yesterday, but here goes again...

There is nothing wrong with the RC 2" lift, a lot of people have it.

I would suggest getting the Bilstein shocks with it. They will add a tiny bit of lift as well.

Re: decided lower or lift.....

^What Jeff said, however I am a huge fan of the RRO lift, so I would say make the switch if you can do so.

Edit: and no stacking, if you think you want more lift just go OME HD or SL now.

Re: decided lower or lift.....

Nice, you won't be disappointed.

Are you going to swap out shocks/struts? any idea on new rubber?

Re: decided lower or lift.....

well i ordered the second kit with the shocks and then i also order the struts. So I should be good right?

Also on the new rubber...... I have 235 on now and I was given a set of 255 that will be the street tire for now as long as it doesnt look to bad with the lift....... I will get some new rubber when I find some for a good deal. I was going to go SL next year but im do this for now and go for that I have the money when tax comes so maybe tax time will mean new stuff for jeep
