Would like some lift advice

I know there are a million threads on this already (and I think I've been through them all) but I find the responses at times not too clear.

I need to change my shocks and can get a suspension lift for the same price as I would pay for the shocks alone. I can't decide whether to put a 2" or 3" lift. I don't want to do anything else to it right now (funds). If I put a 3" lift do I need to replace anything else? Will ride & steering quality suffer?

What does anyone suggest for tire sizes for either the 2" or 3" lifts? And if you have a pic.

I really appreciate the help....

I should mention I have a stock 2005 4.0L TJ

With a 3" suspension lift, you'll most likely need a slip yoke eliminator (sye). 2" should be fine, just need shocks and springs. You can do a combo lift, by doing a 1" body lift and 2" suspension lift and a motor mount lift (mml). This requires more labor. If you have the time to do it yourself, then go for it.

It really depends on your plans for the Jeep. Are you gonna run bigger tires? What size? Will you be going off road or just staying on the pavement? These factors will be huge in deciding what lift is better for you.

Mod, please move to tech.

Thanks frenchy for the advice.

I will be putting bigger tires on my Jeep. Haven't decided what size yet - not sure what size would look the best/ opitimal. I don't plan on doing any hard off roading mostly pavement driving. I know I don't want to get into the body lift scenario. If I can do a 3" suspension lift without doing anything else. that'd be great. If I can't then I'd put on a 2" lift.
