So I recently got a 1999 WJ a few months ago and love finally having an awesome suv. I am about to order some new tires for it and figure why not get a cheap budget lift for it as well.
My Jeeps gonna be a 80% daily driver, but there will be days when I'll rip it off road here and there. Also, being in New England I figure being a little higher and getting some bigger tires will help me out in the winter since I'm an on call firefighter and will be going through a lot of storms pretty fast to get to my station.
My question finally is, in your opinions, what is the best budget lift I can get. I've been researching and I've found 2" spacers from Rocky Mt., 2" spacers from Skyjacker, 2.5" Teraflex's, and some Skyjacker 2-3" Shocks. I want to get the highest I can get so I can throw in some pretty big tires, so my question is which one would be the best for me. Would the spacers boost me up higher than some cheap Skyjacker shocks? or vise versa? And i plan on spending around $150-175 tops hopefully.
Also, anyone know the difference between Dueler A/T Revo's and the new Revo 2's. Im getting the Revo 2's for the same price and didnt know if anyone have used them yet.
If anyone has some advice it would be greatly appreciated, these are a lot of questions but I am new to all this. Thanks alot.
So, from reading almost everything on the forum I'm gonna buy a set of 2" or 2.5" spacers. Is a pair of shocks necessary with these? I've read mixed opinions. Companies say you can use your own, but Jeep owners say to buy new ones cause of the length of the shock. Also, since I'm primarily a daily driver, what shock would be best in your opinion. I'm looking for a cheap one. If skyjackers are bad would black diamond, re, or rough country be better?
Any idea if a set from Autozone or Napa will do the job? I found these any opinion?
