Ok I'm coming down to the wire on my lift. I'm about 2 weeks out from making my purchase. I have it narrowed down to the ARB 3'' coil lift or the Pro Comp 4 inch stage 1 kit. What are the thoughts out ther on these lifts? Pros cons etc???? I'm going to be running 305-70-17 Good Year Duratracs.

Those lift kits are both way to big for 33s.

^^^^^^ agreed, i just did a 2.5" lift and will be doing 33s. i can tell just by looking at by jeep that the 2.5" and 33s belong together. If i did more lift i would do 35s

You can even manage 35s with 2.5 inches of lift. 3-4 inches of lift is gonna look straight goofy with 33s

Have to say neither brand is high on my list for lifts. I would look at TeraFlex, Rock Krawler, Old Man Emu, or Full Traction.

Would stay around 3" too. 4" and you start running into other upgrades too - live driveline for example.

Teraflex x2 for me.
I'm running a TF 2.5" coil lift and 35s. No rub issues to date. if I fo then I will go to flat fenders or cut my stockers.

thanks Grog,

You really need to be asking the shock length on these kits. a 27" long shock will be destroy driveshafts at full drop.

Our new JK kits have silent ride and maintenance free bushings.
