Will this lift fit my jeep?
 
Want a little bit of a lift for my jeep but I'm cheap as well.
Would this fit my jeep even though I have a 2001 6cyl and its made for 03-06 4cyl?

If not whats the differences?

They make the same lift for your Jeep.The kit for the 4 banger would have different spring rates up front because the engine weighs less.Look into the Zone lifts.They ride better than RC.

zone makes a 1.75" 3" 4" and 4.25" lifts. As far as I've heard is a 2" lift is the highest I can get and if I get a 3" or more lift I will have drive line problems that would require buying more parts to fix.

You're correct. Once you get above a 3"-3.5" lift kit, you'll either need to get a slip yoke eliminator (SYE) and CV style drive shaft. That will correct your drive shaft angles and prevent vibrations and u-joint failure. You can also run a small motor mount lift (MML) and body lift (BL) to tilt the transfer case to correct the angle of the drive shaft.

The Zone 4" combo kit has 3" lift coils and 1.25" BL allowing you to clear 33" tires. It also comes with the MML that will put your driveline angles in check. So, if you're really wanting to lift that high, I'd look into that kit.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Sometimes you'll get driveline vibes with only a 2" lift.All Jeeps are different.

I run that as well as ironhead, except he has 3" coils up front.

And I'd suggest the 3" coils, even without my winch weighing down the front, the front shocks are a bit large for the 2" front springs. That being said, they have great ride charectoristics on and off road.

If I did it again from the start I'd call bds and see if they'd swap the 3" fronts in, but it only cost me $100 for the 3" springs and I have no complaints

I'm at 2.5" with zero driveline vibes.
