Suggestions for a 3" Lift kit for an 01 TJ

I am sure that somewhere... in the years and years of posts there is a thread somewhere about lifts. ... but technology and preferences change so I wanted to throw this out before I buy anything.

Looking to do a 2" to 3" lift so that I can fit my 33s cleanly in the spring. If I go off pavement its mostly woods and not any major rock crawling...
what are people finding they like for a lift... body or suspension... I was looking at some Rough Country's earlier... or ??



No work and lots of Mud makes Frankie a happy girl! :)

You are right, this question asked multiple times a day and thousands of threads answering it. Probably several from earlier today.

Budget will dictate the "right" answer but I'm going to guess and say you are a candidate for Zone.

Cheap and decent.

I always suggest Old Man Emu springs for lifts in that height range. They make a variety of spring rates so it's possible to select a spring that's ideal for the way your Jeep is outfitted.

Put them together with a set of Bilstein 5100 series shocks and you have an excellent setup.

PM me if you'd like to chat further. I've been an OME dealer for many years.

I would go with a 2 " susp and 1" bodylift. You should be able to avoid drive line vibes if you go this route. OME is always a good option, many like the RC springs. If you get vibes a MML should fix it. If you go with a 3" susp you may have to drop the Tcase to deal with the vibes.

If you are running in the woods you will probably be running at higher speed than if you were on the rocks. I would recommend getting better shocks and less emphasis on the springs. If money was an issue I would avoid springs and go with spacers just so I could have more money for better shocks.
