Lookin at lifts

I just graduated and will be heading to college. I got about 500 or 600 for my graduation party. I want to get a 2.5" lift with maybe a 1" body. I know RE and Old Man Emu would be great but do you guys think I should just go with a Rough Country lift for about 450 or so and save the rest towards tires I will need soon or save up for a month or so and get a nice lift and run pretty bald tires for a while?

Why not buy tires now then save up for the lift?

I know certain companies sell individual springs. When I bought mine, I bought the two front springs, then a couple months later, bought the 2 rear springs, and then other parts later on. It helps to spread it out over time financially. (Helped me anyways)

I would go with the R/C, I just did mine last month, $517.00 delivered to my door, with everything I needed.

Road stiff for about 2 weeks, now its softer than factory, plus I ditched the sway and track bars.

R/C uses different metal for their springs and they say the old sagging problem is gone, so far so good! Tell em u r a Jeep Forum member and u get 10% off! Good Luck

I would go with tires but my stock springs are so saggy whenever I try to go on a trail I smash my gas tank skid into every little bump I go over. And my bald 31's now beat the crap outa my flares enough already. So i was lookin to go with the lift before I broke something.

x2.

This is my opinion: the on road ride is much better than stock and better than some of the other competitors.

Sitting in your Jeep does NOT count as a mod!

So stop off roading for a while. Tires are important to drive under any condition. The lift, not so much.

If this is your only vehicle, tires and no off roading for a while seems like the best idea.
