your gonna need at least 5 inches to get by with minor trimming...if your gonna run 12.50s then get a wheel with 4.5 backspacing...right now im in the process of puttin 2 inch spacers on my existing 3.5 inch lift i need lower adjustable control arms before i start

rustys makes a 5.5 kit

Rubicon express makes kits

and rock krawler makes kits

id check into those since your wanting a complete kit and want it all done at once....bear in mind they are all about 1000 bucks Rolling Eyes

havent heard much about clayton

my 3.5 inch lift took about a day woulda been faster if we had a lift...

minus the minor inconviences we ran into it took between 6-8 hours the more hands you have the better when my uncle showed up things started coming together rather quickly
