I just bought and installed a 3.5" AEV lift. It has very good reviews on it. You don't need to spend this much money on a lift though to get 35s underneath it. The Teraflex lift is pretty good, as well as the Poly Performance. These aren't cheap though. You can get something cheaper and accomplish the same thing. Or do what N2Rock did and put a small body lift on with a small suspension lift.

Thanks for any help anyone can give.

there is a sticky at the top of the forum that reads: "Will it fit?"


there are thousands of hours worth of reading on this subject which can answer everything you need to know.




Welcome to the forum, congrats on the JKU

Welcome to the forum, congrats on the JKU

I looked under Jk technical forum, is that the right place? Thanks for the response.

Pat, a few links with user reviews of different lifts. I have several friends that have been very happy with Teraflex, and I tend to lean towards Teraflex myself because of the experience I have had through my friends:

Teraflex 3"
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f239/teraflex-jk-wrangler-3-lift-kit-shocks-771520/

BDS 4.5" (limited reviews, try google)
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f239/bds-suspension-4-5-jk-lift-flex-arms-coils-shocks-771498/

Black Diamond 3"
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f239/black-diamond-jk-3-lift-kit-771438/

Clayton 3.5" (limited reviews here, try google)
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f239/clayton-3-5-jk-suspension-lift-771462/

Hope this helps

Mike

Mine is pretty tame to most photos on here. Don't laugh at the mud flaps. I had to put them on for my wife. She is all of 5-ft. tall and has to slide in and out of the Jeep and surprisingly they do help to keep th sides a little cleaner so she doesn't get dirty. I am just surprised they havn't gotten torn off yet. That will be the excuse I need to get some new fender flares...
