    I'd vote for currie or rokmen arms.
    Instead of getting all 8, I would get a set of rear adjustable uppers, sye and cv drive shaft.
    You can save up for the rest after that.

    Default Jks

    I have adjustable JKS upper and lowers in the front of my 2" lifted 2005 unlimited. I love the way they flex and they are very strong.

    I really wanted to focus on the front end more. If I just get one set which is more benificial. Im also looking at getting the Rubicon Express tierod/ draglink conversion kit, anyone got any thoughts on it?

    Do you have any front end vibes? If no, the rear would be more beneficial. The front's a bit more forgiving because of the extended length of the driveshaft.
