So with the Lift... I decided not to go with a $3000 suspension.
Is there anything that anyone knows of that is a good offroad/onroad suspension for no more than 1500?

old man emu 2 inch with a one inch JKS body lift. You can mostly run 33s at that set up.

you appear to be into jeeps, so you know that even 3-4 inch short arms lifts may cause drive line vibration and require upgrading to adjustable track bars...my first lift was a 'simple' 3 inch that turned into a junkyard dog of added components.

Well there is a 3 inch Body lift on it right now. So just a 2 inch Suspension and leave the Body lift on it?

That would minimize your changes in steering (bump steer, aligment issues) for sure...you may not have to have an adjustable track bar, though I would watch how centered the axle stays.

I always give a thumbs down for body lifts over an inch...they give you altitude w/o benefit of suspension travel. If that is set up already and you like it, you may not have to change the lift at all do you? It seems even 33s might fit (barely) so long as you are running wheels with about 3.5 inches of back spacing (non-factory).

I think im going to go ahead and go with a BDS 3 inch suspension. Decent price and heard good things plus lifetime warranty.
Im just debating on when to get it, since there hasnt been monthy runs or anything...so whats the point of spending money on it if its not getting used
