I have a 96 4.0 zj and I wanted to put a 4-5" lift on it, what's the best but cheapest way to do so? Also I wanted to keep my stock rims so what is the biggest tire I can use with that size lift and on stock rim?
the thing about lift kits... you may see these small prices on the kit that are well below what people here tend to say... because the kit generally includes just enough components to make the jeep sit taller... driving with the lift is another story
usually all manner of little things that add up quickly and turn a $560 kit into a $1000+ job
When I bought my first lift for my zj I bought the most expensive one I could afford for $672.00. It didn't come with CA's or extended brake lines and real stiff springs. At the time it was my DD but I also had a motor cycle. What I ended up with was DW you couldn't believe. I was running a 4.5 lift on stock arms with worn out bushings and I turned my sweet zj into a death trap.
So instead of buying one good lift for $1000-1500 I spent $2200 on fixing the first lift.
