2012 Rubicon Unlimited lift

I have a 2012 Rubicon Unlimited on order and am planning some upgrades, I had a jeep for 12 years before I got married 20 years ago and need some advice. I am planning on adding a front and back bumper from Shockworks and a 9500lb Warn winch. My jeep will be about 80% on Road and 20 % off road I plan to run 33inch tires. We have a fair amount of snow and I need to be able to get around in the mud. What would be my bestlift kit based on my usage? I have read alot of the threads. I was looking at AEV but I thought 3 1/2 might be overkill. Any help would be great!


In Ellensburg, WA

I love my AEV lift; rock solid on road and I have no complaints offroad. It is by far the best lifted, all-around driving 4x4 I've owned (and this is my 7th). Knowing my wife would be driving it with the kids, the selling point for me was Expedition West's 'track day': AEV HEMI Wrangler Track Day on Vimeo

I'm sure there are other really good ones, but I wouldn't trade mine for anything.

AEV HAS a 2" coil lift coming out you should probably take a look at.

I would suggest the Rock Krawler 2.5" stock mod
