Rancho 2in Sport Lift

My last thread didn't get much love so I'm trying again. I have been looking into a budget boost due to, well my budget, because I want 33's. I found the Rancho 2in Sport Lift. I dont really want anything larger the. 2in. This seems almost the best of both worlds because you do get a spacer in the back and springs up front, with shocks. I found it with the RS9000xl online for 370 so that's a great deal. I like the idea of paying a little extra for a better ridge with my boost.

Also if anyone has a great 33in setup that's light and performs well on the highway, in mud and in the snow. I'm open to ideas.

I'm running the level 8 trackers with 33x12.5x15 Goodyear duratracs, and will be installing the rancho 2" lift soon. Really happy with the wheels and tires, and they're about as light a combo as there is. Can't speak to the lift yet, but their customer service is great.

I have the same 2-dr you have (Orange though) and actually kind of pieced my own lift together after purchasing 33" ProComps. Haven't been able to try it off-road just yet but it rides fine on the highway. I started with a TerraFlex leveling kit with just the pucks. I also bought springs from an unlimited (18/59) and shocks from a COD. Swapped the springs because my original were 14/55. I put one puck in each corner (1" each) and new springs/shocks. I ended up with almost a 2.5" difference over stock but it pretty much handles like stock. Hopefully I'll get a chance to try it out off-road soon.

I went this route because I've heard the aftermarket lifts can have a pretty harsh ride. In order to keep the wife willing to ride in the Jeep, I decided to try to keep the ride similar. All-in-all, it cost about $330 for all the parts and I did the work myself. Also had to spend $80 to check the alignment but you'd probably have to do that anyway. Your results may vary and your goals are probably different, but it's another inexpensive option.

Make sure you get the right kit... They have different kits for 2 and 4 doors. I bought from 4wheelparts and they just had the 4 door kit. The folks at rancho were really good at getting it sorted out, but it's an avoidable problem if you pay look at the part numbers of the kit
