Jk lift preference and why?

Hey all,

I plan on getting a 4"suspension lift on a JK 2013 wrangler sport and want to run a 35" tire comfortable on my jeep. Any preference on what lift I should get(planning on a long arm, suspension) and what shocks you use? I want a reliable system that people depend on and don't want something cheap that'll cost me later. Please reply what brands/kits are good for which purposes and what other parts I will need in the replacement (drive shaft, shocks, etc.)

Thanks so much for your time and consideration!

lift kit and leveling kit advise

I have a 2011 4dr wrangler I plan on lifting. I am interested in using a pro comp 4 inch lift kit and a 3 inch leveling kit. Can anyone tell me the pro's and con's to having both installed? I am no mechanic so all advise is greatly appreciated. I also have a factory lifetime warranty so all upgrades must be done through the dealership to avoid any problems with my warranty!!!

A 4" for 35s is unnecessary. You're looking at thousands of dollars. Check the JK tech section FAQ.
