So I've had my jeep for about 4 months now. I've taken it off road a few times and love it! I live in Arizona so there are tons of mountains to climb. Everything on it is stock except for a some modifications under the hood. But I need more! More! I have given myself around a $2,000 budget to upgrade. I was thinking Rough Country 4" lift, and some 31" tires. Rims I'm not so sure on. I like the ones that almost look like rims on cop cars. Black, and plain looking with small circles cut out all the way around the rim. Anyone know what they are called?
Also what's the difference with the regular 4" lift and the 4" X-Series kit? Or can anyone post a link that describes what each part of a suspension lift do so I can be able to better understand the mechanics and language?
Also any pics out there of a 4" lift with 31" tires? I want to kinda visualize what it will look like.
So basically If you had around $2,000 to do a suspension, rims, and tires, what would you do?
Any help would be awesome!!!
4.0 I6, 2in BB, Bilstein Shocks, K & N air intake, Custom headers, Borla muffler, 62MM anodized throttle body, Helix throttle body spacer, Super Chipped.
best advice ^^^ second best would be doing some research...
but with only $2000 to spend I would go with 3" or less. Iron Rock Offroad seems to be a very popular choice (I have it as well and it's great and priced well).
IRO 3 kit w/o shocks - $399
Bilstein 5100 shocks from Kolak - $310
Rancho RS5000 steering stabilizer from Kolak - $50
Spring Isolators from Kolak - $100
you may also look at disconnects for the front and maybe also an Addco rear sway bar ($150 from Kolak). So you're at or above $1000 already before you even thought about wheels/tires... it adds up quick and $2000 isn't a whole lot. Don't go to 4" on that kind of budget, you'll regret it!!
Front hitch receiver and an 8000lb winch, I don't care how much lift or how big your tires are, when you are stuck, you are stuck, and even worse when noone can get you out ( i have learned from experience).

Despite what most users say, 2k will do a lot as far as lift. RE Lower Control Arms, Spring Isolators, Springs, Rear Sway Bar End links, A Arm spacer, and some cheap shocks can be had for around $1000. Now, If you actually want an enjoyable ride, you may want long arms/bilsteins. To each their own, I like my lift.

If you only want to run 31" tires, then stick with a BB. With that budget, you can easily get quality shocks, 5 good tires, recovery points and armor, which is what you really need to competently wheel your jeep -- not just look cool. Spending your budget on a grossly inferior 4" lift will be a huge mistake, and you still will need to spend more money to actually wheel the thing.
