Thanks, appreciate that. And haha, one of my first cars was a 1982 Olds Delta 88, four door with velour bench seats. Oh I know the ride you're referring to. :thumbsup:

If you're driving 100's of miles a year off pavement, I would definitely recommend getting the e-locker. The Traction Control does a fine job in most situations where you would need it, both on and...

I'm assuming you want it for the front, and for the winch to always be with you.

That said, in the off-chance you're like me and you only need it for occasional use when off-roading to get you...

$2000 sounds about right. I paid just under $2000 for my fronts and rears.

For ratio, personally I'd suggest 4.56. Modern trucks with overdrive will still keep the RPM's low even at highway...

Jeep looks awesome. :thumbsup:

As far as discount off MSRP, yes the general consensus as stated above is $7,000 - $10,000 less than MSRP. I would target that.

I really like your last post. :thumbsup: Thank you. After a house, vehicles are probably the next biggest expenditure so it takes a lot of time and effort to get exactly what you want. Nothing wrong...

Great lookin' trucks!

I give it a quick wash whenever it gets dirty, but have a detailer do a full wash and wax a few times a year for a deep clean. This is after the last detail.

I off-road a lot (but I have a lift, not a level) so just chiming in with my experience from chatting with others. I would stick to no more than 2" maybe 2.5" max if you plan on off-roading. Most...

That looks awesome. To me, that is the perfect setup and stance for a 4" lift. I also agree that an 18" wheel provides a better ride compared to larger wheel sizes.

Oh and to answer your question about price... in short, and I'm simplifying, the cost difference in lift kits is mostly due to how they lift the front of the truck.

The less expensive lifts add a...

I'm happy to help. Feel free to ask any questions.

I know you mentioned 12" wide wheels (I believe). That's like really REALLY wide. The tires don't need to match the wheel width (and generally...

Cool. I'm sure you'd be very happy with the Bilsteins. The Fox package is about $500 more (total) for all four corners. So that's something you can decide. If you didn't see my post above (you...

The Fox's will give you a far better ride than stock or a leveling kit. They are expensive though, but many people (including myself) think they're worth it.

There are less expensive but still...

I've heard great things about the Toyo's as well. I don't think you can go wrong with either. Toyo actually owns Nitto. The Toyo equivalent to the Ridge Grappler is the Open Country R/T. The A/T...

Hi... I may not be able to help all that much, but I do have a few thoughts.

Regarding the 3" level (either with spacers or a coilover), that's pretty high. While I'm sure you can do it, and many...

If the gears they're referring to are the gears in the front differential, then yes, 4A would get those gears going as 4A would engage the front differential.
