Best lift for my needs...

I have a 2012 JKUR.

I most run trails and some mud. No rocks.

She's a dd during the week.

I'm looking for 2-2.5 lift. Looking for the softest ride possible as I definately prefer that for my taste.

I'm looking to spend no more than 1k for the lift w/shocks.

I've recently driven a jeep with TF lift and shocks and think the ride is too firm.

Suggestions??

Check out Rock Krawler 2.5 stock lift with Bilstein 5100s. Great product, and if you choose to go bigger later, you can.

Do you wheel in Wharton State Park?

AEVs new 2.5 kit seems like a good option w the Bil 5100s and FCA brackets for 1k.

I really like the FT SRS 3" lift but it's a little more than I want to spend at 1200 w/o shocks but man it looks like a nice set up.

Teraflex 2.5" coil lift, Rock Krawler stock mod, OME HD, Full Traction Econo Lift, all good options. Can currently score the Teraflex lift with Bilsteins for $750 shipped from Northridge.

I don't think any of these would be characterized as "soft" rides. I've got the FT 3" lift w/Bilstein 5100's. Ride is awesome, but I'd say it still feels like a Jeep.

Of course I understand it's a Jeep and not a Caddy.

I've had 4 wranglers in the last 19 years so I'm not new to this....

I just saying I spent 35k on this one and want to keep it driving smoothly. I've found most quality aftermarket coils offers a better ride than stock and I'm looking for the best in my price range.

Can't have the wife and the little one bouncing around with a harsh or stiffer ride....I'd never here the end of it.

Out of all the ones I mentioned, the OME would probably have the softest ride. Their shocks are known to be very plush. But to obtain the softest ride, the light/medium duty kit would be needed over the HD that I mentioned.
