Best value lift kit?

Anyone know of a lift kit that isn't super expensive, but still a good buy for my 2006? It's only a 2.4L so I can't lift too high, otherwise I will lose too much power.

It's not the lift that kills your power, it's the tire size. You need to tell us what you do with your Jeep and what you want as far as tire size, etc....

Well, the plan would be to get new tires anyways, because mine are pretty spent. As for what I do with my Wrangler, It is my only vehicle and I use it for everything. I use it to get to work, and also to drive out in the middle of nowhere on rugged terrain . As for a price range, It's complicated. I would have to save up for it. It is SO frustrating having a Wrangler with no money to spend

The best value in my opinion is the 2.25 budget boost from four wheel customs for 96 buks it's shipped to your door and if u decide to do it I recommend spraying your coils so it looks like a legit lift kit.

Oh, and I am not going to be doing any rock crawling or anything. I don't go to off road courses, I off road to get to hunting spots or fishing spots, or to go camping. Therefore, I don't need a top-of-the-line kit.
Thanks for the help.

Thanks for the pictures. I will take a look into that one.
By the way, what city do you live in? Just the background in the pictures looks familiar.

If you wanna go for a cheap full suspension left look at rough country they are pretty cheap and decent quality my only suggestion if you get one is to put different shocks in because the ones that come with the lift like there name "rough"

Thanks for the help, and if anyone knows how to counter losing power while putting bigger tires on, then let me know.

As they told me: re-gearing. Apparently it adds HP and even a slightly better fuel economy.

(Not an expert, just telling you what they told me on my thread)
