if i may offer a few suggestions on some of what i been reading ,
Living in south florida and owning jeeps for years , first i was wondering why you didnt just go with a 2" spacerlift & new shocks , instead of airbags ,air bags will fail and if your gonna considering using your jeep as your ZORV. you want dependability
and no headaches . the 2" spacer lifts are very inexpensive and tera-flex makes a great 1 , for your jeep , i know because i have the same 1 . yeah its a bit of work getting the lift installed , but anyone that can turn a wrench can do it . not to mention there is way less aggravation involved , no air to have to worry about nothing , not to mention you would get a much better aggressive looking stance apperance and a smoother ride . i have pics if your interested in seeing 1 installed . i have done this particular lift 4 times and i installed it on my JK last year .
i guarantee you if you install this on your rig your wont ever have to even think or worry about airbag failure ever again .
or aggravate yourself over it . consider getting yourself this lift , its about a 6 hour project to get it installed but i promice you , you will be most impressed how your JK looks and rides after . also this lift works great for the JK install and you WONT have to get a wheel alignment after as you do with most other lift options .
note : if you are gonna do this kick in the extra $52.00 and get yourself the tera-flex steering stabalizer you wont be sorry trust me .
as i said if you would like to see pics of this lift let me know i have it installed on my JK ,
i noticed your posts about the bag failure and the hassles you had but if you had this Boss you'd be Set with zero hassle and headache .
im no sales man im just a long time jeep owner and i know what works well .
i have quit a bit of exp, with this product and you would love it and your Jeep would ride like a mercedes and will accomidate 35's easily with 1.5 off-set spyder-trax .
you can get this Kit for about $500.00 exc. your steering stabalizer . which your def gonna want .
this kit is top quality at an affordable price . which is great
as for the decals if your getting bubbles , let them warm in the sun first then apply them slowly using your DL , or a squeege to press them as you go removing the back layer sheet slowly as you go a lot of people just pull off the back sheet and lay it on the surface hence air bubbles . you can use a needle if necessary to poke a hole in the bubble and then press it down . always worked for me and i have installed many for our club members .
as far as your Jack selection : High-lift jack is a great choice there is so much you can do with them and your mounting options on a jeep are endless , also suggestion here , bullet jacks work great also and take up lil room in your jeep a lot of our jeep club members swear by them .
uuummm your : cargo rack selection . from what i saw that was the steel one . many folks down here in south florida opt for the alum.1
reasons ...... lightweight , durable as all get out , wont rust or corrode . also you can order 1 from harbour frieght for much less then you paid for your steel 1 . i own the alum 1 and never once had an issue with it .
you can get this 500pd capacity cargo rack for $94.00 even less with a 20% off store coupon
Tire selection : if you are considering BFG's ...or Grapplers etc i beleive i read take a look at the ( Mickey Thompson MTZ's ) just a suggestion , i have these and yes they have a very aggressive apperance but
the ride they offer is Just excellent ....smooth and easy handeling. and their offroad ability is great
if you want a serious ZORV./ bugout vehicle i see your on the right track and made some super great choices for your JK...... however if you dont mind a few fine tuning suggestions to save you some headaches down the road with my experience i can suggest some great gear choices to help ya out if you dont mind a few suggestions .
