Well I talked with David at Northridge and he redirected me away from the full traction kit and I ended up getting the Teraflex 2.5" for the 4door JK's. Reasoning is that the 2door and the 4door lifts are virtually identical but by putting a 4door lift on a 2 door you get 3" of lift instead of 2.5".
Nice choice, thats the kit im running on mine! Look into a procal module, you will be able to fix the speedo, turn off tpms sensors, etc.....make sure you get the steering will perfectly centered or it wil activate your esp. Lastly, ive put several of these kits in if you want a hand!

I'm looking at borrowing a procal module vs buying one. (for a small usage fee anyways) I have a separate thread started for that.
I don't intend on disabling the TPMS that's why I have new sensors on the way in. I may reprogram a lower threshold on it for the larger tires though.
The steering wheel and the drag link flip are the two things I'm sweating a little bit right now. I know how important getting the steering wheels straight is and I'm more then a little apprehensive about drilling out my knuckle to fit the new ball joint... But I will do it.. I'll just take a little more time with this one and do it right.

Well things have been busy. Ol' Red is no more... I have some parts left from her but she's been stripped. The suspension is installed on the JK and with a little luck I'll be able to pick up the JK on Tuesday from Starr with a new set of 5.13's installed.
I still need to install the steering correction, get the front end aligned, and pickup a tire carrier.
Right now I'm looking at the OR-Fab Non-jerry can swing out tire carrier. I'll post pictures soon or if the JK is done in time you will be able to see it at the next meeting!
