I have an 09 wranger sahara and im looking to put a lift on it about 3 to 4 inches. Ive been looking on 4x4 parts and it all the lifts ive looked at say it will fit the wranger x and unlimited and rubicons. Would it make a difference going on my sahara because I cant find an answer. Im new to the jeep world so im still learning and dont wana buy the wrong thing.
Sahara/Rubicon/X is meaningless. The only thing you need to watch for is 2dr vs. 4dr. Even then they would fit, but because of the weight differential involved, putting a 4dr lift on a 2dr would result in a higher than advertised lift.

Yea I saw the 2dr and 4dr warning on the website. What is a good brand of lift because Ive seen like skyjacker coils and shocks for under 1000 but then some other lifts are 2 to 3 grand what do I need to look for when buying a suspension lift and what to avoid. Like I said im new to this whole thing
First you need to decide on a tire size. There's absolutely no need for a 3-4" lift (most aftermarket coils yield more) unless needed and/or running big tires.
Research is your best friend here. A lot of these shops put a price on height when the kit is missing key parts to work. I see it all the time.
"Hey ... Ripoff off-road wants to sell me a 4" Procomp lift for $500 installed" ??? Run lol
TF is a very good choice. Stay away from budget lift kits for bigger lifts. Anything over 3-3.5" is a sizable lift for Jeep that still has function well on road 99% of the time. The kits that cost $3K usually include some parts that are absolutely required. Most lift kits provide more lift than advertised. So a 2.5" kit will usually give you 3.0".
How big you go is your choice but just be aware of the additional costs along the way.

Another question. Pro comp or tera flex. They both have a 2.5 in lift which is what I m looking for and they are both about the same price. Who makes a better lift?
Teraflex is one of the most known brands out there. Although procomp is as well, teraflex really specializes in their lifts. Definite go teraflex, they really give the best product and amazing customer service to go along with it. I can't say the same about procomp, although I haven't installed a procomp lift.
