What height lift should I get?/ Good Brand?

Ihave a 2007 Sahara 4dr unlimited with a 2" body lift and 33" Toyo M/T's. The majority of my driving is city/highway, but plan on taking the kids 4x4ing in Northern California. Any suggestions on the height of lift and brand I should look into having installed? Thanks

why are you looking to install the lift? You already have a BL and 33's. what else are you planning?

If you want to get your frame off the ground you could swap out the pucks for a 2.5" BB.

Yeah getting the suspension up will serve up much better. 33's are fine as long as you use your head when driving.

I plan on doing some rock crawling this summer and eventually making a trip to MOAB with my boys. I figure I would need a suspension lift to navigate the trails.

I would start with the sticky lift discussion thread ... Lots of documentation on pros and cons ... As for personal experience, my 4" RC X series lift with 35"s has done me well - better than stock. Not sure you need more than what you have now however for MOAB from what I have been reading but I will let others more experienced with MOAB pipe in on that one
