Most popular JK 4DR. lift kit

What is the 4" lift kit of choice
for all you guys.
Won't be offroading and hope to go
to a more offroad tire and smaller rims this fall that will still be good
on the highway as I commute 35mi. a day.

Thank's in advance, Craig.
Sometimes I think some of my questions
are a little off the wall.

Lovin' my Wrangler!

There are so many heights that a JK can be lifted and there are sooooo many lift manufactures that your question cannot be answered.

Now you did ask for advise so you may get that. He is mine; sounds like you want to keep it a daily driver and the lift is more for looks then wheeling. With that assumption (yes I know what that means) keep your rim size what it is now and go to a taller tire like a 33” but no taller. The extra sidewall will give you a better ride and keeping the tire at 33” will not sap your power so no regear will be needed. Re-gearing = $1000 roughly. Just do a small lift, I suggest a 2” spring spacer, that way it will not look goofy with a tall lift and small tires. Also the taller you go the stiffer the ride because your control arms will have a steeper angle which will cause a stiffer ride.

Not very specific but should give you some food for thought.

Also have a '06 Rubi LJ, Auto

Any lift will impact your commute btw.

Since you don't plan to do any offroading and this is more cosmetic, I'd actually recommend the 2" lift from the dealership. You'll be able to run bigger tires for the "look" you want, but it won't be too extreme as a DD and will be covered under warranty.

Lot's of assumptions here on my part, but like the other poster said, this is a pretty general statement so ahrd to nail down.
