Best lift for a good price.

I am wanting to do a 2.5inch lift on my 2008 Jeep Wrangler unlimited. I don't want to go any bigger then that for fuel mileage concerns. Can someone recommend a good lift?

The first question you need to answer is , what do you want it to do?

Pretty much stock but higher. I don't want to go too crazy as it is my daily driver that is why I only want to do 2.5 inch or 3. I don't get too crazy off road but a little more clearance in Moab would be great.

The size of the lift won't cause you MPG to drop, the size of the tires will.

If money is a concern do a 2 inch budget boost and if still want more lift add a 1" body lift. If you want it to do better off-road get some sway bar disconnects.

I have known a few people running this type of setup with 33's and thing worked just fine.

If in the future you decide you need/want to go bigger or better you won't have much money invested. The 1" body lift is a good mod for any Wrangler, built big or small.

Start with a good set of coils that fit your needs.

You can add a small 1" 1.25" body lift or a small coil spacer later if it's needed.

It's cheaper to start with a coil you can build off of than it is to start over from scratch when you need to fine tune or your wants/needs change.
