The first BIG change you’ll notice is that your wallet will be much thinner. I’m just guessing here but it sounds like the ones advising you to go 4-inches of lift are more the hard-core guys and not the more casual users. I went with a 3.5-inch lift for my unlimited because of some of the places I go off-roading.
As far as the ride goes I’m very happy with it but it is a bit harsher than stock which is expected. I would suggest you take your time and drive your Jeep as often as you can off-road to see just how far you’re willing to go as far as the severity of trails you’ll be wanting to explore and base your lift off that.
