I have a 2011 JK Unlimited 70th Ann. And I have about $3500 bucks to spend on the car. My goal is to have the car raised 4 inches and have some fat 35s on it. My question is am I going to be able to make it with this budget. Because I know it doesn't just end with tires, wheels, and a lift. I need to change all type of stuff?
Cut the lift down to around a 2-2.5" which is plenty to fit 35's (wish I'd done that honestly) and you'll find yourself sitting in a good spot. Go bigger and you'll be where I'm at right now... Broke and still needing a few items to make it right.
Or you could go even more economy friendly, just do a leveling kit, throw 33's under it and have money left over for something else like new fender flares, bumpers, or a winch.
I spent $4200 and got 5 33" Duratracs, 2.5" Teraflex spring/shock kit, rear adj track bar, USA Alloy wheel spacers, exhaust spacer and a split dual stainless cat back exhaust...and got it all installed at an excellent 4WD shop. You can get all of this for around 3500 dollars minus the installation cost if u do it yourself too!

Cat back stainless exhaust with resonator removed and Rugged Ridge split dual TP system/K&N Filter and back seat removed. 4.10 gears with Auburn HP LSD. Rampage stainless steel mesh grill insert. Third Wrangler I've owned and fifth Jeep total.
Life is Good!
