Jk unlimited lift

I am getting ready to lift my JK unlimited. I am putting 35's under it and doing a 3" suspension lift. I am looking at Rubicon Express, Rock Krawler, teraflex. Any pro's and con,s. It will be wheeled some but will use my other jeep fir banging around in woods. I want a good ride and strong parts.

Hmm. Look into the SEARCH lift. Really. It's kickass. Better fuel economy, reduced wear and tear, and looks killer. Really...

It is to hard to search. I don't care about all the other brands of lifts. I want to hear from people that have an unlimited and either of those lifts. ONLY.

Too hard to "search", then use Google-

Try Google and type "JKU Lifts and 35" tires"

I don't have any of those lifts, so I can't help you

I can tell you one thing, RE had some big problems with the rubber bushings they used. Idk if the problem has been resolved so I would check into that before buying anything from them.
As far as RK and Teraflex,....I dont think you could go wrong with either one.

Thanks for the info. The problem with pulling searches on Jk Lifts is that it pulls searches on lift reviews on all brands. I have narrowed it to the 3 I listed.

I forgot to tell you, RK recently released a 2.5" sprink kit for a pretty decent price. It will net you just about 3"

I have the 3.5" RE lift, they had issues with the rubber bushings but that has been resolved, I had 4 go out on me and they replaced them free of charge. As far as ride goes, my 4dr rides like a dream on the street and highway, offroad it handles everything I can throw at it from mud holes to washouts the damn Jeep goes thru it! I would buy the RE lift again if I had to, check there site out. Kevin

I have the Rough Country 4" lift with the 2.2 shocks and have NO complaints other than DONT use the front drop trac bar bracket get a adjustable trac bar. I have wheeled it fairly hard over the last year and a half with no suspension issues.
With 35's

This is with 38's

Looks Good but I cant flex much.
