Totally overloaded

I just bought an 06, when my wife wanted me to look at the Commander I drug my feet but gave in and drove this one and I must say I was kinda impressed. I them made a ridiculous offer and he took it.

I'm not liking the way it sits so I've been reading the lift topics and here I am. So with that being said I totally love the way Big Blues rig sits but I end up confused when trying to put a parts list together.

Sooooo Big Blue or someone that has a similar set up do you have a part number list by chance?

I get the Rough County lift but get lost on what shocks are what and then he added some hemi coils on the rear?

Any help would be awesome because that the stance I'm looking for.

Thanks in advance and sorry for the newbie stupid post.

4x4? It makes the vehicle a little heavier. If you do coil spacers it doesnt matter, same lift, but if you do coils, you will need to decide the height you want, and if you want a stiffer or softer ride. 2-~3 inch OME offers HD and MD coils, where as the superlift (4") is one size fits all. Blue's mod list is listed here. https://www.jeepcommander.com/forums/...ehicle_id=1514
