Suspension Lift Kit/First Timer

I've had my Jeep for about 5-6 months now and currently working to buy a lift kit in the next or so. My question is, which I know is asked a lot, Which kit do you go with? Working on a farm and driving on a couple long trips a year. I'd like to know the best option to look at. looking to spend no more than $1000 but I'm willing to drop a lil more if needed. All Suggestions help

Okay, we can help with that! We need some more info first...

What size tires are you going to run?

What type of wheeling are you going to be doing?

Have a idea on shocks?

What size lift would you like or does it matter?

I agree. First you need to decide how big you want to go. And I mean ultimately. Don't waste money now on a 2 inch lift if you know that you want 37's one day.

Well i'm looking at to upgrade to 35's. I currently have 33's

I'll mostly be doing street driving with driving on the farm I work at and a lil occasional off-roadin

Shocks I really don't have a clue at what I'm looking for

I have was looking at a lift of about 4in.

I put the 3" OME lift with long travel shocks. I netted 3.7" out of the lift. With the adj. track bars and adj. lower control arms it cost about 1600. That included longer brake lines, springs, shocks, track bars, front lower control arms, spring retainers & bump stop extensions. Full kit, quality parts and great ride.
