4" lift help

I want to look into getting a lift sometime soon. I have 2" spacers on now.


What all is needed to run 4" of lift the right way? I plan to do a 1" BL and a MML before the lift. If that matters.

Well, if you are going to run 33's, you don't need 5" (4"spring, 1"BL) so many of us like the Zone Combo 4.25" kit as an inexpensive, yet good riding, and quality kit.

4.25" TJ Combo Lift J25/J26

If you budget allows for top of the line...check out the kits from Currie.

no offense but that's kind of silly. it's cheaper to pick a size and build for that size then plan to pay for it once then change it later.

Well i want to run 35" tires but dont have the money to swap the axles out right now. I could get the lift now then 33" tires at the end of the year. Then save for axles and tires at one time.

This is a dd jeep. so i cant risk 35" tires on the stock d35

the steps your talking about are the same ones a lot of people do including me. i'm just trying to save you from my mistakes. i wish i had continued saving when i bought my first lift because now i've changed it once and i will be getting 35s soon and changing the springs. it would have been cheaper to do it once, but i get the appeal of getting a cheaper smaller lift to fit 33s for the look. since you just want 33s for now you should get the zone combo.
