Budget Lift kits

I Know there is a thread about lift kits, but, there are a thousand recommendations on there. Is there any pros or cons to these, I don't want a full suspension lift, just something to level it out and maybe 35 inch tires later on? I don't off road very much, more of a daily driver.

Sure, there are pros and cons to anything, but you sound like a good candidate for a decent "budget boost." Rough Country makes one that's high on the "bang for the buck" scale: (http://www.roughcountry.com/jeep_jk_2.html). If you're going to actually get coil springs though, I'd look elsewhere--TeraFlex, Rock Krawler, Full Traction, etc.

I've read nothing but good things about the Teraflex leveling kit. 2" in the front, 1" in the back, levels it out, slight lift, fits up to 34" (depending on wheel backspacing).

I got nothing but great reviews on Teraflex. I think you will need 2.5" lift for 35" tires.

Thanks for the replies, sounds like Teraflex it is.
