The lift was the cheapest part of running the rubber. By FAR!! The recommendations that were made for you were done with careful consideration to your wallet and your passengers as well. You have a lot to read up on, young jeep Padawan. If I were you I would spend time going through at least 100 profiles of members and cross referencing that info in each catalog you can find.

They would be ok with the OME springs if you didnt max them out. You dont want your shocks to keep your suspension from traveling. Thats what bump stops are for.

Don't forget to check local/state laws about bumper height, frame height and other requirements before you purchase anything. I can't tell you how many guys I have seen pulled over and ticketed for driving their dune runners down the street because they didn't know about the 26" bumper height in Michigan.

and i appreciate the recommendations... it prevented me from buying full out junk.. i do have a lot to read, but i also have a lot of time, and i am plenty happy with how my jeep is right now. patience is key. through time i will mod it up and stuff

Hmm... so you are saying there are a few other things i should additionally to what has all ready been recommended? I really have to find out everything I need to do the lift. extensive research.. and oh, i checked my tires. the engraving on the tires say 31's. so my tires are 31's not 30's. woops. at least my tires are 1 inch less puny. i may look into getting 33's and a lift higher than 2.5 inches. did not want bigger tires at first, but 33's would be a nice upgrade and then i could have the 4 inch lift i originally wanted in the first place.

I noticed before that someone mentioned with a 4 inch lift, i will need SYE and other stuff that arre not cheap.. does all the other stuff only apply with a 4 inch suspension lift? will i need a bunch of extra stuff too with just a 2.5 inch suspension, and a 1 inch body lift?

The exclusion of the SYE was factored into the 2.5" lift suggestion.

Tell ya what.


Make a plan based on tires and we will go in one direction instead of this ADD based thought process.

Just to throw it out there, here's my jeep. It has 31's with a skyjacker 4" lift and the rugged ridge 7 inch flairs. Just something to look at.

I have a pretty good guideline on what I want, so I won't need anymore suggestions or anything. Now it's just a matter of getting the money, buying, and installing. As I mention it will be awhile. Buying other things for my jeep first

That is a straight up 4 inch lift? How's the ride on it? I have heard skyjack is not too good.

And that actually does not look silly at all. I like the look of tires with the lift. Guess 31's don't look to bad on a 4 inch lift.
