Question In need of advice please

Hey hows it going everyone? Been up and down the forums.. some sick lookin jeeps you guys have haha.. I'm looking to get a wrangler myself but before i go head first into it i wanna get some advice on lift kits, tires and wheels.. im lookin for that big beefy look that alot of you have and im just trying to get a ballpark on how much it costs to get a stock jeep to the beefy look.. just looks for right now, the actual offroading mods can come later.. just a ballpark on a couple inch lift kit maybe 4" and a big set of tires and wheels. What do you guys have? and how much was it to get there? thanks in advance

I've spent about $1200 to take mine from...

to here...

He's only lifted a little over 2" and on 31s. Most of the money for me was in the tires since I did a spacer lift for now with a set of rubi coils.

He ain't the biggest or the most trail ready, but he trips my trigger.

I don't know if you are looking for a TJ or a YJ, but for less than a grand you can get a 4" lift and 33's on a YJ. Mine only has 31's.

I know you said you want a lift for looks but are you going to be doing some wheelin' in the future? You could get a BB (budget boost) for really cheap and you could install it yourself. But if you're going to be doing some wheeling then you might want to go for a more expensive suspension lift. I've got the Pro-Comp 4" lift with 33's for roughly $3000(?) installed. Let us know what you decide
