JK lifts?

Hey guys, i am a yj owner and i got my step dad into jeeps. he bought a new 2008 wrangler and wants to lift it. he'd like to put a 4 inch lift with 35s or 33s. what are some good lifts that come with every thing needed so we wotn have head aches. i suggested OME or rough country (only because i have it and it gives a smooth ride) im not so sure on gearing but i think he has 4:10s.

Tell your dad that he doesn't need 4" of lift for 35s. Best advice I can give you is short and straight. If you or he doesn't want to read up on all the info out there about lift options, simply do a 2.5 coil lift with 35s and be done. If you want to learn a lot more about the JK platform, read up here and ask mucho questions.

Tell em congrats on the new rig from us.

With the JK you will only need a 2.5" lift to run 33s easily and 35s at the larger end. OME is a good choice along with the other popular choices of teraflex, rock krawler, metal cloak and a few others. Depending on his plans for the jeep you can drop a good amount on a simple 2.5" like the teraflex or spend more on the metal cloak or rock krawler lifts that come with more like CAs and discos.
