Talk to nick 'Kolak', a great vendor on here with the best prices. He can set you up with Old man emu or Iron rock coils paired Bilsteins with a Jks track bar.

Everything you need to know is right here: Comprehensive 2" lift thread

The TLR answer is a 2 to 3 inch lift is lagom because beyond that, significant additional parts are needed. Modest lift springs are only marginally more costly than "budget boost" pucks, and quality shocks are absolutely worth the extra $ (Bilstein is the going favorite, my experience with them has also been excellent)

Hey Funk,
How do you underline 'lagom' and 'comprehensive lift thread' like that with the link?

Another vote for fat bobs/bds here. Helps it look like a jeep and not a station wagon.

I've got an X series. While I do have some complaints about the kit, the ride quality isn't one of them. I guess all those years of owning a roush, and a cobra with saleen suspension taught me what a rough ride is.

I have the 4in Zone lift. I'm happy with it. Nice to see another Fredneck.
