4 inch lift kit

Got a stock TJ essentially. Want a 4 inch suspension lift and 33's. Price range for lift kit is 700 bucks. Looking for suggestions on what to buy. My jeep is a daily driver that will be hitting light to moderate trails occasionally, so on road performance is more important than off road but i want to be able to handle the moderate trails and mud and water with ease for the most part, while maintaining a good ride and not go broke doing so. Thanks for the help guys

My friend did the 3.75" Zone lift with 33s and he is very happy with the performance both on the street and on the trails. Add some swaybar disconnects, and you're good to go.

You can fit 33's with a 2-3 inch lift and proper backspacing. A bit cheaper and less required to make it work. I just did the Zone 3" and put on 33x10.5 BFG's. My Jeep is also a DD and is 90% on pavement so it's the perfect setup for me.

I bought my 4" Pro-Comp SA lift for roughly $500 (in 2003), and it has performed for me in a variety of situations.

Jacume - Baja California



Huitzi's Rubicon runs a Rough Country 4" lift, and it cost him roughly $500 (in 2011)

1942 Pole Line Road - Baja California



When I have the $$$, I plan on upgrading. But, for now it gets the job done.

4 inches is quite high, requiring a CV/SYE which usually run at least 500 for both. I'd go with a 3 inch and add in a body lift + motor mount lift.

^^X2. Zone makes a nice 4.25" combo lift that includes 3" suspension lift, 1.25" body lift, and motormount lift so you don't need an SYE, or transfer case drop. The kit is well within your price range. Get the optional sway bar link disconnects if you're going to do trails. We just put one of these on my son's Jeep and he is very happy with it.

Agreed, I got a 4 inch zone lift and wick disconnects, drives awesome on the trails and is awesome on the road.
