    Howell fuel injection, header, HEI distributor, TH350, NP208, SOA lift with YJ springs in the front & GW springs in the Rear. AMC20 with G2 1 piece chromos trussed, Dana 30 with G2 chromos and 760x ujoints and MM Stainless Hubs, Geared 4.56. Tom Woods shafts, Metal cloaks, Caged, 37" Toyo MTs.
    It's all in the eye of the beholder. I like 4in lift and 37s. Very streetable and great offroad.

    IMO drive the JKU for awhile and get used to its unique ride, handling, braking and overall stability. Lifts can change the JKU characteristics for the better, worse or something in between. Read up on the forums, utube, etc looking for lifts done right and/or tips. Depending upon your budget some TeraFlex kits start with leveling kits>budget boost>2.5>3 and more. For example if your JK is a daily driver a rock crawler suspension may not be ideal.
