'Best for the money'... You spend $500 on a name brand lift and your getting just that, a cheap lift.

Want something better? Break out the wallet. There's a saying that goes 'you get what you pay for' , and zj lifts fit right in with that

If your asking our suggestion on steps to take when building a rig, if you want something in between stock and long arms, I'd just put 2" spacers on. Anything more is a waste as you'll be selling it a year down the road.

And speaking from experience here, if there's something that you want down the road (ex: long arms) don't get half way there, decide to be cheap/impatient and half *** it (ie: adj. short arms in my example) as you'll just be reselling them in a few months budgeting for what you originally wanted

98 ZJ: Built 44/88, long arm'd, locked, 35s, armour, blah blah blah

I've got a 95 ZJ Limited with the V8. It won't see any off-road, 95% on road. I have a set of ACOS that I never used from a XJ. I'm trying to achieve enough lift to clear 33x12:50x15's, what brand and size lift would be recommended. What are my options? Is there a GOOD, BETTER & BEST to select from? Part numbers of kit would be greatly appreciated.

If funds permitted this is what I would do for a lift kit. Bds front long arms because it's a true 4 link, Clayton's rear triangulated 4 link, Iro or rustys 5.5 springs, and bilstein shocks.
