My 4 choices......(keep in mind that I already have the 1.25 BL and 1MML)

3.5 RESF: I had this on my last LJ rubi and liked it but never had it long enough to deal with the busing issue. But I was told by DPG that he's pretty sure the issue has been resolved. And, would I have to look at a new DS with the 3.5 and BL/MML?

DPG Ultimate OME kit: I think the price is good with both TB's and again, I already have the BL/MML but it lacks the CA's. Can my stock CA's last with this set up until I upgrade them down the road?

Rokmen set up: Basically the same as the DPG but minus the TB's, which I could add, but I like the option of tossing the CA's in there (not all of them).

Currie: Offers the CA's and front TB but I dont want the anti rock. Plus, isn't this close to needing a new DS?

So I guess my question is which is more important, having the track bars or the CA's? Or just going with the RE which gives you the upper CA's and just adding the front TB (never had the back one before)?

Or I can buy a tire carrier instead and get the lift/tires later (that way I dont have to go without a spare).

What are some points I'm missing to pull the trigger?

I can give some advice, but mostly from research and having one of those lifts. I'm sure there are plenty of guys who can hopefully help out even more.

I would suggest all rokmen arms and then use AEV progressive 3'' springs, OR if you want more height, Currie 4'' progressive springs. I haven't used either of these or the arms, but I have done a ton of research and it def. sounds good and everyone loves it who has that setup. I think the currie CA's are similar to the rokmen (as in the same joints).

I do have the RE SF 3.5'' kit on my LJ rubi, and I wouldn't recommend it compared to what else is out there now. The springs don't ride the greatest, and not sure what shocks you want, but the ones on mine aren't that good either. Looks like white rancho shocks. The bushings on my arms 'look' ok, and seem to be the 'new' design, but I hear they still have some issues and can look fine when they really arent. I have a slight wobble, and I am going to look into new arms next and see if that helps. Alot of guys really like the currie JJ's on both ends of the arms too, and even recommend getting the one for the upper axle mount to replace the rubber bushing. I bought the jeep with the lift on it already.

I would piece it together, Rokmen arms, Currie TBs, and if you get the 3'' springs you probably will be fine with your stock driveshaft. Also, since you have a bl/mml, you could probably easily fit 35's on most of these options. Then later on you can highline/tube fender it and run 37s! And since you are wanting a tire carrier/bumper, the progessive springs are an even better idea.

Good luck!

Thanks for the info. You mentioned tire choice and I guess I should've elaborated on that. I plan on running 285's on my moabs for now but DO PLAN on jumping up to 35's down the road after gears/axles/brakes. But thats down the road for sure.
