a set of slider with a outer tube work great as steps and protection. so jeep get a toy that pulls double duty. lol

i scored a pair of these used from another jeeper and either am going to put anti slip take like a skateboard top or used bedlinen to replace my running boards for the trails.

everyone uses the running boards with the jeep stock so when lifting the jeep i need to keep them. also i have notice its nice to have a step when you park over alarge puddle or deep snow lol

on my last wheeling trip the JK behind me had a 2.5" lift and slider his 6 yr old son had no problem getting in and out of the jeep. but can always put a strap for her to grab

It really depends on how high you want to go.

Re: lift pictures please!

I think you'll be happy with spacers and bilsteins. I just took mine off this weekend and replaced it with a 4" X series from rough country. The 2" was great, but doesn't help much in rocks for a wj. Onward and upward.

Re: lift pictures please!

Wow! What a difference! Bilsteins and 2" daystars went in this morning (new transfer case fluid and alignment too) and it drives So much better. My mechanic loved the Bilsteins and is ordering some for his SUV. I'll get a before/after pic up as soon as the rain stops.

Now onto the 17" hulk commander gray wheels and new tires!

ETA: Before:


After (sorry, it's dirty!)

No, as of right now I have stock length shocks and its fine since my Jeep is a daily driver and barely sees any off road, but I will be getting a 2.5" Rustys Basic kit with proper shocks in the near future...
Stock length shocks just limit you flexing ability, and maybe ride quality too, but im 20 so i couldnt care less if it rides rough lol
