4.5 lift question

This has probably been asked and I tried to search it but I couldn't really find the answer I wanted. I want to buy a kit to lift my 98 cherokee 4.5 that comes with everything I need. Except for the bolt I will prolly break. Lol. What is the best bang for my buck.

The only thing you're going to recieve is opinions.


There are always going to be rough country fans, iron rock offroad fans, Clayton fans, OME fans, etc etc.

I went with a Rough Country 4.5" lift kit and I'm more than content. People will probably bash it and point out what's wrong with it, but I'm ready for that.

I'd say do your research and don't impulse buy anything.

Opinions... we ALL got 'em
The X series that Rough country sells has basically everything but the kitchen sink, er..., SYE!
Rubicon's kit looks to be well outfitted as well...
To help you with the research, try this web site:

They have kits from most of the manufacturers.

Rough Country sucks and you suck to!! Ha jk but I totally agree. I got the zone offroading 4.5 kit, but it didn't have everything. I still needed a track bar and steering stabilizer.

Oh listen to you! You bought a who lift kit?? GARBAGE! Haha.

Seriously OP, search is your friend. Although it will probably drive you crazy as well because there is no definite answer.

Example; The Iron Rock Offroad Double Shear Track Bar is one of the best on the market right now. You can't even compare it to the Rough Country track bar.

Some things are actually better, and well, some are just opinionated.

There is no such thing as a complete lift kit. There will always be something that you will need or something to upgrade. Best advice is to do your research and start simple, then build from there.
