I would not lift a JK more than you need to clear the tire/wheel combo you want to run. It just raises the CG unnecessarily. Also, as above, once you go over 2.5 or 3 inches, you need a lot more parts to correct the geometry and get a satisfactory ride. My rule of thumb is about $1k per inch of spring lift with all the parts you really need. Sure you can get a kit cheaper....but you will be adding other parts down the road to get back to a good ride IMO.

I do not consider myself a smartass. I point out the obvious, search for the truth, and speak fluent sarcasm. I am, by experience, an accomplished curmudgeon.
