One other thing John, When you are going to buy a lift, bigger isn't always better...

(This is just my opinion and theory)

Go with a 3.5" lift and 35's, this will give you a nice low center of gravity and a wide stance with a 35 x 12.50 tire.

Too tall will make you feel like you're going to tip over...low and wide is my advise.

But everyone has there own opinions.

Looks like a Dynatrac Pro Rock 60 up front......nice.

Low and wide does work well for off roading, especially crawling.


Manual trans is nice for off roading, especially low speed crawling......at least in my experience (off roading with 16,000lb trucks, LOL)

Wow how the hell did I miss this all day??????? John's spending money he doesn't even have yet but its always good to have a plan, lol. My vote would be for one of these unless your looking to buy used/built (I didn't bother reading all the posts, yes I'm lazy) besides Keoni's pics distracted me.

Hey John, the guys have covered the main stuff, but just a quick 2c as I've had JKs no-stop since they launched (in Oz) 2007. No secret being because aI was the Marketing & PR head of Jeep Australia until I left a year ago.

The Unlimited (4-dr) offers lots better stability & flexibility. Parking sucks coz long wheelbase though. 2-door is mega fun, but needs to suit single-dude lifestyle for the most part.

I've had all the variation, all the transmissions and all the engines. Depends what you want to do. Than manual is more fun, but the auto better as a daily. The key change is to try for the recent update that got a HEAP better interior and the 3.6L Pentastar V6 over the old lump - Completely changes the vehicle and worth its weight in gold to upgrade.

I also liked the Freedom top hardtop - Take the front t-tops out and feels like in a full drop-top but takes 2mins (soft top takes ages).

Anyway, just my little thoughts, through please note I used it as a daily commuter, not for offroading. And they were bone stock, not lifted etc.

But in short, they are super-fun to drive everyday and I loved it. Good luck!!

Bono, I really appreciate the information, thanks for sharing. It's pretty sweet you used to work for Jeep; I am sure you had some nice perks that went along with that role. I will definitely be going with one of the newer models so that I can get the upgraded interior. That is worth every penny to me just as you suggest. I also do plan on getting a hardtop, that is a must to me. I will be shopping around in the next few months, and once I sell my jeep I will be purchasing a DD. I will keep your thoughts in mind, thanks again!

Yeah, there were a couple of perks - The best being a staff discount on my SRT! no worries on the info - Ask away any time, as I think I counted having around 11 different personal JKs over the 5 years... and 'ran in' about another 30 of them for the press fleet. They were like my 2nd home Good luck!

The front end on the non rubicon doesn't like big tires. The ball joints are the weak spot. My gf had never offroaded hers in stock trim it needed everything replaced at 40k miles. Not a big deal but be conscious of this if you want it lifted.

Now you can get a good deal on a rough country 3.5 lift kit. Call them direct and ask for the forum discount.
