Let me give you a hint.. You cant buy a cheap lift like, (lets just say) RC and some 35's, and expect to wheel it.

I just don't get it no mores.
You opened a bomb here red lol

What I think hes talking about here is because of a few locals to me and him. Theres a few kids that have gone out and bought jeeps, then ask me and red for info on how big they should go etc etc. first thing I always ask is, whats your budget. They always say not a lot. Next I always ask, ok how big would you like to go, and so on. I tend to tell them stay under 4.5 and 33s. There budget and skillset isnt quite there to go 35s and up. A few kids listen and just continue to save up and learn. Then theres a select few who think they know what there doing, And just order big kits and 35s. have the kits installed, then complain to us about how crappy it drives/wheels and when they break it. Mind you we do tell them over and over with 35s you need a lot more stuff to make it proper. (gears, steering, bracing, etc etc) which is why we tell them smaller lifts or keep saving. After a while it does get really annoying.

current 99xj (5.5 on 36s)
past 98 xj (4.5 on 33s)sold 95 zj (stocker)sold

I've spent hours researching here and generally don't post unless I feel I need a better answer or didn't find the info I needed. Its also sometimes easier to just make a new thread and receive a current, reliable answer to your question.

Parts change, prices change, and new problems arise. For example: You can find hundreds of old threads praising one manufacturer for a lift kit based on search results. Maybe though a recent post shows up in a new generic "lift question" thread about how the quality of a single part from that manufacturer's same lift kit has recently declined making the integrity of the suspension unsafe.

The same person that posted about the quality change doesn't always go out of their way to make an entire thread about the issue. Sometimes its better to ask questions and wear the flame suit instead of learning the hard way.

I think I pee'd a little.



Edit- After further observation, my above statement is indeed correct.

... Really?

People say what is the cheapest way, but right way to lift and put 35's or bigger on.. There is no such thing as cheap and right.. Its expensive and right. They would know that if they did a 30 second search.

But you guys have to realize that new members don't understand stuff that the vets here do. We all started somewhere and had a dumb question or two along the way.

So, are you going to finance all of our rigs so we can all get expensive lifts?

3 Inch lift, 30" BFG AT's, Walmart lights up front.

no we are going to suggest that you make sure you know what you are getting into before you go trying to do 6" lifts with 37s on your stock axles utilizing a rough country 3.5" f.r kit with 3" coil spacers on top.
