Looking at lift kits

I some what recently bought my wrangler (first time owner) and I have been looking at a lot of different lift kits. With my jeep being a daily driver and mostly driven on the road, I want something that won't completely kill the ride on road but is still good off road. any ideasgood out in the trails

i wouldnt go with more then a 2.5 inch lift Rancho makes a great lift the problem isnt finding the lift its doing the lift if you dont have a garage to do it your self make sure you have someone with a good knowledge of doing jeep wrangler lifts. my mechnic F'd mine up had to get a new mechanic to finish it and fix the mistakes from the first one. if you know what you want get it done right the first time, do you want knew shocks and suspension or you just looking for a body lift

Yea I'm thinking more towards the shocks and suspension. I got few shops around here that specialize in lifts I don't really have the know how to do it my self I just got to do my research on what shop I want to use

Thanks for the info man

Old Man Emu, OME, by ARB. Comes in different levels of ride for heavy bumpers or not.

I really like the ride both on/off road. Easy to install and not that expensive.

I went with the HD 2" and got about 2 1.2" out of it with bumpers and winch.

They also make a 4" full kit as well.

I have the RK 3.5 and I'm glad I spent the cash on the good stuff. Jeremy seems to have these lifts nailed. I even have its sister lift ( 6" Pure Performance) on my Dodge diesel.
Great products....
