Read every post in the Tech sticky in this forum. You do not want that much lift. You lift enough to fit tires. What size tires will you run?

Seems like you want to go all out on your lift with 4-6 inches.
As I'm assuming u would want 40" tires?

On a stock Sahara that would be an epic fail of many parts!

6-7 inches plus tire lift - You may want to read a thread entitled "Mods you have regretted".
I assume the fact that you are exploring what are the differences between long arm, short arm etc lifts that you may be new to the hobby.
That is a lift range of a seriously expensive road and one that would make that rig a very limited use rig.

First off, WELCOME to the forum
This is the question that comes up on the forum at least once a week from new JEEPERs. That's the reason for most of the "read this thread" style of responses.

I don't want to make any assumptions, but based on your question it sounds like you may be new to JEEP life. I know reading through the entire Tech thread and every sticky about lifts will seem very daunting, but at least glance through a few. It will save you a TON of $$ in the long run if you gather as much info as you can before you start.

In the meantime, give us some info about what you plan to do with the JEEP, or what "look" you are going for.

Yeah I'm new to jeeps, haha only in high school, new to cars period. I knew I wanted a jeep since I could remember so iv been saving up a lot to let it go on my dream jeep. I want an agreesive look but not stupid, 6inches would be stupid now that I think about it, maybe just 4 all suspension, but mostly I just radrive with my buddies in large hay fields on my farm with big drop offs and jumps, that I can also go mudding in, so I want something to support that, but won't tip, I don't climb or anything like that YET, but I would like too, but I don't want it just to look good, I want a compromise of performance and looks, and I was thinking 37" tires AT THE MOST, not huge, but again aggressive and performing

1st thing, go wheel it in stock form and then decide what you need to do, just some field wheeling with some mud will not require that much lift and tire, with a 3" lift you can fit 35" tires and don't have to change control arms or drive shafts, at 4" of lift you get into the area of needing a lot more supporting parts

I think more research is still needed... There are alot of threads about going bigger than 35" tires and it's not cheap to do. 37's are a big tire for a JK especially a sahara with a dana 30 front end. Not trying to talk you out of it but you need to know what you are getting into. 37's are not a compromise between looks and performance, for what you are looking at doing 3" lift and 35's would be more than capable while being alot easier on the pocket book. Drive your jeep as it is and read more forums about lifting and tire sizes before making your decision
