1990 Jeep Wrangler YJ lift kit

Looking for a liftkit 2 - 4 inches. Not sure what or where to order from.
Live in Twincities Minnesota. Anyone know who sells or installs a lift kit for my jeep? I am somewhat mechanically inclined so if I see a youtube or video on how to install I can do it myself. Hopefully.

Thanks

I run BDS 3.5" springs. They are a military wrap and have a lifetime warranty.

You didn't say what your budget is. Remember if it's cheap, cheap is what you'll get...

Cheap is great for napkins or bottled water. No so good for a suspension.

Do it yourself. You'll be fine. I just installed my OME lift myself last week. It defiantly took a bit of learning on the first spring to figure things out, but after that it was cake. I've never done a lift install myself before that.

Take the money that you would have paid a shop for the install, and invest in a few tools. They'll end up paying for themselves for the rest of your (or their) life.

My .02
Cheers

Anybody got a dead horse laying around?

OK, seriously, lift kits are discussed to death around here and the prevailing consensus is that Rubicon Express, BDS, and Old Man Emu are the best and not much more then the inexpensive kits. Personally I've had both Rancho and Old Man Emu and can't say enough about how great the Old Man Emu system is.

Hey Admins! Can we have a merged lift kit thread similar to the infamous track bar - sway bar thread?

Then do them justice by not installing rough country.

I have the BDS 2" lift on mine and love it! I actually got 3" of lift out of it and it works so much better both on-road and off-road than the worn out stock springs ever could have.
My 0.02 is get a good quality kit and like Anticanman said "Then do them justice by not installing rough country."
