lift help

Just bought a Sahara 10 n wanting to put a lift and 33s on it . I've called several places some say ruff country others say 4 wheel performance n one says zone because it's bds lift this is for my wife and will be n every day driver. Oh n it's a 3 in lift she will not be doing any off roading we r going to wait on that till I get mine. Any help would be great

Why not just put on a Teraflex leveling kit for $130.00 and change. For just running 33's and no offroad this looks like one of the cheapest options. Here is a thread of someone else who just went this route with pics: http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/pic...3s-190879.html

Have read some bad reports on Rough Country. They say some springs will start to sag. Not off roading would probably go with the Teraflex leveling kit.

Rough Country should change their name to "3 week alternative".

I like my AEV 2.5 setup... Terraflex can be spec'd similar. You don't need much lift for 33s... just the proper offset wheel.... If you go up, go with 35s minimum or it will look weird...

On that note, you might take a look at the RK 2.5 Stock Mod.
