    Can you tell me what bracket systems would be recommended in order to keep as close to oem geometry all the way around?

    I would use the geo bracket in the post that you quoted. Depending on ride height, you will use a different mount to regain, in many cases, a better ride feel than stock. :)
    Thanks!

    @lightsout How do you feel about the rubicon Express Geo Brackets? You’ve had them on there for a bit now. Did you get the ones that come in 4 pieces? I’ve been looking at them but im worries they may be a bit flimsy. Please share your thoughts.

    At this height (for the SPORT) nothing is needed out back.
    Now our "taller" CRAWLER systems includes control arms

    The Rancho Brackets were not in stock so I purchased the Rubicon Express Geo Brackets, which are extremely stout. I am sure either brand is more than sufficient as both companies are experienced suspension manufactures.

    Not too sure who you spoke to, but we have TONS in stock of our brackets.

    Here is a review I wrote after installing the Rancho 3.5" Sport Lift.

    href="https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/jl-sport-sahara-only-lift-kit-thread-non-rubicon.20211/page-2#post-502704">JL Sport/Sahara only Lift Kit Thread (Non Rubicon)

    I am very pleased with it except the Front end rake/drop. The front springs cannot handle the bumper and Winch, in fact the bumper I installed was made out of Aluminum and only weighs 35lbs plus a 9500 winch and Ihave about a 1"-1.5" front drop.
