So I just bought my first Wrangler, a 2012 Wrangler Unlimited Sahara. I didn't go with a Rubicon cause I don't see myself needing lockers or swaybar disconnects. I'm looking for reccomendations on a 2" lift so I can fit 33" semi aggressive offroad tires. I'm looking for that offroad look but I do not plan on taking this thing wheeling. But if I wanted to go through a mild trail I do not want any problems with breakage, bind, or premature wear on any parts. I also do not want a stiff ride as this will be on the street 98% of the time. I know this is a tall order but which is my best option as there are many to choose from. Cost is not extremely important as I'd rather pay for something that will last and not prematurly wear out the jeep. Are coil spacers the best option, or a suspension lift? Which ones? Do I use the factory shocks with extensions or aftermarket? Are any addtional parts needed to prevent wear on other items? like extended brake lines? any drop brackets? modification or extensions for any steering components? steering stablizer parts? Please provide any and all information as I am new to the Jeep world. Thanks!
I'd recommend a 2" lift by Old Man Emu, they are know for the best ride quality. As long as you stay under 3", you won't really need to modify any other components, although they will help. I would not recommend shock extensions. Even if its a spacer lift, get new shocks. If I were you, I wouldn't even mod it. Jeeps are pretty capable on their own. If you're not going to wheel it, buy a Land Rover and give me the JK
