Need lift advice please!!!

I'm looking at lifting my KK 2", 2.5", or 3" very soon. It's mainly for larger wheels and tires, but also for clearance issues.
The rims I want are only available in 20" and I'm going to go with an A/T (not sure which yet) due to the time I spend on the road.
So I'm just looking for some advice on the best lifts out there to suit my needs. And I don't particularly want to get crazy with the cost, but not cheap either. Thanks in advance!!!

Check jeepinbyal
bottom line OME lift is about 750-775
will get you about 2.25 inches of lift , can add some to it to get more
or you can move up from there to adjustable coilovers etc
personally I'd stay away from 20 inch wheels, harder ride etc
also have to be careful and stay at about 30 inch tall tire

Check jeepinbyal.
Actually, you could check out some other places, like All J's (boulderbars.com), who sell Old Man Emu products if you want to comparison shop.
But seriously, get a coil spring lift not a spacer lift. These folks aren't kidding about the advantages of a spring lift and the problems with spacers.

I'm saving up for my lift now. Spent lots of time researching and I'm going jeepinbyal. Even though I'm going to be more of a mall crawler, I want to do it once and do it right.

At the end of the day, the guys above are spot on. Tommud is loaded with great info. Search around the site and you'll see.
Good luck!
