Get more flex out of my Wrangler JK

Hey guys,

what could I do (within a budget of max 2500 AUD) to get more wheel flex out of my Jeep? I have already a 2.5-inch AEV lift kit and front swaybar disconnects but last weekend on the travel ramp I was beaten by old landcruisers and patrols. What way to go?

Maybe go a long-arm kit? Not sure of the cost of that but...
Bort OP

There are sets at morris 4x4 which claim to give ultimate flex. But they sell it as a whole lift kit and I already have a pretty good lift. So I am wondering where I am missing out? Maybe its just a few parts that I need and not the whole lot.

There's your answer, buy the new kit and sell what you have. plenty of jeepers want to upgrade their stock jk's

AEV kits are not really known for their flex-ability but more for their comfort.
To get some extra flex you need things that are able to stretch and not necessarily extra height. So longer travel shocks, extended length flexy coils, extended brake lines, bumpstops and control arms with flexible joints and possibly aftermarket driveshafts.
A Clayton long arm kit or similar would work too.
