Recommended Lift Kit for a 94 YJ

Hey guys, I'm trying to look for something that would give me around a 4 inch lift. I was going to replace the shocks this week, but decided that it would probably be wise to do it when I would install the kit. I would prefer to not have the most expensive brand, but I want something I know won't lose its performance fast.

Do you guys have any suggestions?

Another thing too is that I think that I might need to get new tires and wheels with a lift, just because I know there will be times when I have four people in the car. I heard 33s are good, but I just want to know others think.

Everyone is going to say you get what you pay for. I went cheap and got a RC lift. It's a good lift. The ride quality isn't as great as other lifts though. I've heard great things about bds lifts as far as ride quality and bang-for-you-buck.

SOA will give you the best ride though, and it's ~5.5" of lift. Hopefully others will chime in with their opinions

I ran an Rough County 4" on mine.. road fine for what it was.. shocks worked fine that came with it.. I did install a SYE kit on the t-case along with CV rear driveshaft.. I ran 33's on mine.. i also trimmed the fenders and added TJ flares...For the price.. I was very happy.

the thing that will most determine you lift/tire size/etc is your budget.

example: say you can afford a $500 4" spring lift, can you also afford new tires? possibility of new rims or wheel spacers? new rear driveshaft? SYE? regear? then the possibility of breaking an axle shaft or spider gears bc of oversized tires and having to pay for that too? etc. etc.

not trying to sound discouraging, and there are temporary fixes to some of what I mentioned, but youre best off determining your budget and what you intend to do with your jeep and going from there.

I agree, I'm happy with mine as well. I didn't mean for it to come across like I didn't like my RC lift.

The newer style of the rough country lift kits are pretty good for the price

Idk if you can see the pic, but mine is a 93 yj and I put a rough country 4" lift kit on it and it looks real nice

I did a Rubicon 2 1/2 lift with a 1'' body lift. you can get a little more if you want with shackles. i love the body lift because i can clean the underside better. you can see a pic in my profile.
