I have a 2014 that already has 10k miles on it, one cross country trip, and 'wheeling' in 7 states, to include Moab. I need to start lifting and armoring the X for the next trips so I dont destroy the sheet metal and can support the weight I carry.1) do you wheel to the point you need it, or are you just along to drink the Kool-Aid?

Of the two of us, you are probably more of a kool aid drinker than I am.
Any other stupid ****ing questions? Or do you just want to answer mine instead?
Im trying to figure out if the X benefits from increased rear wheel travel, and if any of the kits actually increase it.
Thanks for the link...I'll check it out.Calm down man. Give us more info.
How much are you wanting to spend?
How often are you going to use it?
Check this out as well.
Any rig will benefit from more travel. The rear suspension is leafs so for more lift you could go with the AAL or Shackles. However if you're looking for more travel as well (you did also mention more weight) I would go with alcans/dakar however it is more expensive. They can tack on more leafs for the weight you're going to be adding to the X.
te heThanks for the link...I'll check it out.
I load the truck out fairly often, so I think doing a full leaf pack will serve better than basic add a leafs or shakles. I'm also not looking for a ton of lift nor do I feel like I need the adjustability of an adjustable coilover. I don't really have a price cap other than not buying a bunch of stuff I don't need (is calmini)
The one kit appeals because its simple and complete, and there is always something like a radlo setup, or a non adjustable tjm setup with a leafpack. The fronts advertise a 3" increase in wheel travel but I can't find anything on rear wheel travel? From what I've read it seems like the rear already has more travel than the front, so I'm wondering if its already sufficient for non Rubicon trail types.
Thanks again for the link. I'll read through that and get in touch with nisstech and discuss it over with them.
I thought it was a sarcastic post to gauge our knowledge and not his own regarding increased travel since he is a pro, gone"wheeling" 7 times including moab in 10k miles of having the truck.I quit reading after his second post. I usually dont have problems with anyone on here but this guys seems like a complete jackass.
And to the OP. This is a stupid question. If you had half the knowledge you say you do then you would know how to within a matter of minutes figure out the answer to your question...
Let's give the kid a break. He's in way over his head and perhaps suffering from the Walter Mitty Syndrome. After all, in his first post he announced that his "plans for this Veh is mall crawling. . ." and two months ago was asking the difference between "M&S" and "Snowflake" tires. Now he's mentioning Moab and the Rubicon in the same post and dreaming of Titan swaps and Radflos.I quit reading after his second post. I usually don't have problems with anyone on here but this guys seems like a complete jackass.
