Lift Suggestions Please
So, I have a 2006 Wrangler TJ and I'd like to give it a mild lift. As it is driven by my wife often, I don't want to do anything radical or that would make it too wobbly on the freeway.

Olympic 4x4 in Snohomish has a Rough Country 2.5" kit that includes shocks and springs for $650 installed. My local Les Schwab suggested a box kit with new shocks for $750 installed.

I'm currently running 31" tires on stock 15" wheels BTW.

Any other ideas? I know there are lots of threads on this subject in other parts of the forum, but since I'm looking for local options, I thought I'd try here first.

Are you planning on staying on 31 inch tires? If not, what size is in your future?

Will you be offroading with your jeep? If so, how often?

If you do offroad your jeep, what type of terrain do you wheel on and which trails do you run?

Oh, and from what I've read on the forums, I wouldn't recommend a Rough Country lift if you want a soft ride with good handling.

I had rough country on my last tj, it handled very well but rode very rough over sharp edge bumps. As far as ride OME, old man emu is the best ride there is.

As Border Dave said we need more info on what you plan to do with your jeep. Also once you start going bigger tires you will need to think about gears, and axle upgrade. TJs came with the worse axle combos jeep put out. I has the LP Dana 30 and Dana 35 rear both axle are not good if your looking to wheel hard on 35's or bigger. My ZJ has the same axles and im running 35's and my ZJ is pavement only and my Dana 35 is hating life. It needs to be replaced soon. One last note adding a lift isnt the only way that will let you add larger tires. Metalcloak fender set and others like it will let you run 35's with stock suspension on a TJ.
