The only things you can do for under that budget are little. You can do shackle lift or body lift and that's about it. To get a descent lift your going to spend over $500.

Well, while I don't exactly agree 100% with AllMudd here, you will have a problem doing it correctly for that price. You can get a 4" Rough Country lift with everything you need for around 450.00. My advise there is don't get it from Rough Country, but look on Ebay. There is a seller on there that advertises "Make an offer" and he will get it to you for a bit better than directly from them. Even if it is free shipping.

Now, once you have the lift, the next question is can you get by without a sye when you go with the 4" lift. Some don't have any problems, but others get driveline vibration. If you need a SYE you can get by for a while without it, but need to get and install one sooner rather than later. And this will cost you another 4 to 500 bucks.

So depending on how high. You can get the rough country 2.5" lift for the same price as the 4" but why do that other than you won't have the SYE issue.


What size tires are you wanting to go with. The 4" suggests not to go over 33" tires. Just throwing that out there. At any rate, you can probably pull off the lift for that, but will have a hard time if the SYE comes into play.

Ill probably get some flack for this but what about a 3" body lift and maybe some shackles. Could get you 4 inches to run bigger tires and keep a nice ride. Then down the road you can do a soa and have a massive jeep.

Well I am certainly a do what ever suits you kind of guy. The problem with the 3" lift is you have a bunch of clearance to deal with with break lines, wiring, and your floor will need a hole the size of a number 3 wash tub cut in it so you can shift. Not to mention, you had better love the look of frame sticking out all around your jeep.

Mine had the 3" BL on when I purchased it, and it just had to go. I would not go over a 1.25 BL. Just personal opinion. Don't look bad and have no clearance problems.

Body lift is not a bad thing, I just don't recomend going over 1.25" with it. But you are on the right track. Research, research, research, then buy.

If you're going with 31" tires I've heard good things about the zone 2" lift kit its about $500 and that should give you plenty of lift for those tires

I just lifted mine 2.5" with used lift springs and new skyjacker shocks and I paid $150 for the shocks and $130 for the springs.

If money is really tight for you, you could always do 1" boom shackles and a one inch body lift, plenty of room for 31's there and thats only gonna cost you about $200.

Add some TJ fender flares for a little more tire clearance, maybe another $100, and youd have a pretty nice looking jeep.

I have the zone 2" lift on my 95 and just put 31x1050 Baja MTZs on Cragar Soft 8s. Jeep was stock but on worn out 30x9.5 ATs before. Looks like a whole different jeep with the lift and tires. All told I gained about 4.5" at the rockers. The lift was responsible for 3" of that.

I would do it again in a heartbeat. The lift itself ran me 500. I also put the Zone steering stabilizer on for another 35 or so. I didn't drive without the new stabilizer after the lift so I can't say how much it helped but the Jeep drives great without track / sway bars!
