Lift kits and how!

Considering a suspension lift on my 11 Jet 4X4. What are some of the better kits for the buck, and I have decent home mechanic knowledge. Is this too tough to do or does it require special tools that are not likely found in a home garage? Any other good to know tips on the install?

You're gonna get a ton of opinions on here of what lift is the best for the buck. It really depends on what you plan on doing with your vehicle. If it's a look thing you're going for then spend less. If you plan on wheeling spend more. Do the homework yourself and spend time looking at every lift out there to make that decision for yourself. Again decide on what your plans with the vehicle are.

Ok, is a suspension lift something a home DIY project can do?

Anything can be a DIY project.I did my SFA swap in a slopped driveway so anything is possible.
