4in lift kit?

I want to give my 01 TJ a 4inch lift.

I was looking on extremeterrain.com at 4in lift kits with shocks.

Is it better to get a kit, or buy all parts (shocks, sway bar, control arms, springs, bushings) separately?

If the kit is better, what brand?

And if the parts separately are better what are the best brands for those parts?

This is a great question! A lot of people choose to purchase a kit when doing their first lift, and purchase individual parts the second time around. Once you better understand what each part does and how it effects how the Jeep rides and performs you'll have a better idea of what parts you want.

For the lift height you're looking at a lot of guys like the Zone 4.25" combo kit. it gets you a 3" suspension lift and 1.25" body lift, along with a MML. That combination allows you net out 4.25" of lift without needing a transfer case drop or slip yoke eliminator and CV drive shaft that would otherwise be needed to eliminate drive line vibrations.

If you wanted to piece something together, I like the Rock Krawler Control Arms I'm running, with Bilstein Shocks and RE springs. Along with control arms, shock and springs, you'll want track bars, sway bar links, bump stops brake lines and either a transfer case drop or slip yoke eliminator and CV drive shaft for 4".

Let me know what other questions you have and I can help you narrow down a list!
