Rumor has it: J.B.A. 8" lift kit for 05 & up Grand Cherokee

I was wondering if the above RUMOR is true bout da 8" lift kit?! If it is true, is anyone out there running it as we speak? And if there are people who run this kit, is it worth da money & are there any issues with da kit itself? Obviously I'm really curious to know if its worthy of my money & if its reliability & design is safe & sound?! Also, what rim & tire size would be a good fit for this lift kit? Any advice would be good y'all, Mahalo!

Re: Rumor has it: J.B.A. 8" lift kit for 05 & up Grand Cherokee

I have not heard anything about it but it wouldn't surprise me if they came out with one. As there is XK out there running a modified JBA that nets 8 or so inches and JBA bought the WK that had a similar set up less then a year ago.

Personally I think the stuff is overpriced and I wouldn't buy it.

I'd do a superlift for a 4in, and a OME HD for a 2-3in lift.

Yup and that WK has 18's with 37's on it. But who would really be crazy enough to spend the money. For $7K you could buy a used 05 and do a SAS. So why on earth would spend that kind on money on lift that honestly doesn't do much more for you then an stacked SL.

Edit: I guess the thing that really stumps me, is that the WK platform doesn't have allot of aftermarket support for lifts. Especially when compared to other IFS 4x4 like the FJ. So why would any business waste the time and money to produce a lift that they won't sell to the majority of folks instead of making something reasonably priced that would allow them to corner the market. This just baffles me.

The 4xGuard stuff is great. I don't have a problem with paying for that stuff.

Re: Rumor has it: J.B.A. 8" lift kit for 05 & up Grand Cherokee

for that price I rather just go build myself a beast of an XJ.

I personally like superlifted WKs and nothing more, especially for the prices.
And I'd also throw down the cash for 4Xguard products if I could.. matrix brush guard, skids, and sliders are awesome.
