Not sure on lift kit JK

I have a 07 jk X. I'm looking to get a 4 inch suspension lift cause I upgraded from 33's to 35's. I have looked into alot of lifts and Old Man Emu has some nice ones but I'm not into alot of hardcore offloading/ krawling. I live on a farm so driving on that, the occasional mud hole and light off roading, with that said, I'm not looking one rated for all those aspects. I just want one that won't cause me any trouble and is good enough for just some light off roading. I have seen
A few rough country ones that are like 490 bucks and that seems too cheap Anni don't want to spend like 1500/2,000 for one that is intended for hardcore flexing when I'll never really do that. id just like some info on what would be a good kit for what my intentions are, thanks

4" inches pushes you into expensive range, the change in drive angles requires you spend money on a lot of stuff other than the lift. Figure 3k plus to do it right. I'd suggest you look at 2 to 2.5" lifts. read the "Will it rub" thread in the JK tech section.

All good advice from Filthy-Beast above, here’s a link (JK F.A.Q. - Frequently Asked Questions / Will It Rub and Links to Popular Threads!) he is referring too; lots of great info to read/learn.
