Need Help w/ First Jeep

Hey guys,

Just bought my first Jeep about 3 weeks ago. It's an '05 WK Limited and I absolutely love it already. That being said, I do want a bit more lift. I'm not a crazy off roader, but I do want a little something extra for those times when I want to have some fun. I'm looking into the Rock Krawler 3.5" X Factor system because it seems like a quick, easy, and economic lift. I was also thinking about throwing some 31" mudders on there so I don't have to shave anything off the fenders.

Any thoughts on this? Also, do you guys happen to know any where I could get a tire&wheel package for about a grand or less? Any help/opinions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Cappy

Is 2" all that noticeable of a lift though? I want more of a 4" feel, but don't have the money to do that lol

how many miles are on your new rig? if its 80+ k then id suggest an ome because that includes all new shocks and springs and is definitely noticeable.

Its definitely noticeable. I think the rk 3.5 comes out to the same as the 2in bb. Also remember bigger tires are going to give you some added height . Are 31s the same as 265/70s if so and you get mudders your going to have to do the pinchweld.
