3-4 in lift kit for 2014 unlimited rubicon x

Hello,

I am new to the jeep world and am interested in a 3-4 inch lift with 35 in Mickey T's. Does anyone have any advice on which kit is best? I have read that lifts can cause issues if certain parts are not upgraded. Us there a kit that has EVERYTHING that I need besides shocks as I can get them separately. In addition, Does anyone run 2 shocks on each front wheel?

Thanks in advance!
CP

Why would you run two shocks? You shouldn't need them at all. As for lift, look at AEV, currie, and teraflex 2.5" lift kits. All have what you need to run 35" tires with no issue. Above 3" and you're going to need to replace driveshafts and such after a period of wheeling or even driving. Also you will need exhaust spacers for your application.
