4" lift suggestions?

I have a 04 TJ Sport...I currently have a 2" spacer lift and am going to purchase 33x12.5x15 tires now until about March...any suggestions on the best 4" lift package? Thanks!

I hear Rubicon Express makes a nice 4" kit. I've also heard lots of folks say to stay away from Rough Country lifts for the TJ. I dunno. I have a 4" Rough Country (leaf spring) lift on my YJ and I think it's great. Keep an eye out, someone is sure to give you some good tips. I'll be watching this one too, because I wanna see what folks recommend. I'm thinkin' we're gonna put a nice lift on tiny's rig here in the spring.

It totally depends on what you want to do with yer rig, is the lift just for looks? trailriding? or some pretty knarley offroading........Oh and are the benjamins a factor

This is a DD...but I am going to add a winch when I do the lift and want to do some offroading....I have had a Chevy 4wd in the past and loved going "mudding"...the Jeep seems to be more fun!! Thanks for all and any input!!

The Rubicon Express lifts either the 3.5 or the 4.5 will clear 33's. I ran the 4.5 on both my TJ's. Road ride was good for a lift jeep, and did great off road. I also had a TJ setup with good shocks, stock control arms, 3" coils 1" body lift, adj front track bar and 33's and it did fine too. Here are some pic's

RE 4.5 w/35's and 2" spacer's in front


Rustys 3" springs and 1.25" jks body lift 33's

yeah I have heard that the rubicon express lifts are nice, my buddy had a long arm RE and it performed amazing, and the ride was pretty good, I have a 4" pro comp but I don't like my shocks im getting the old man emu's, I know old man emu has some lift kits and I heard they are one of the better ones but the are somewhat pricey, I would stay away from rough country though. if it were me I would do the rubicon express long arm with old man emu shocks but im just throwing that out there, some other guys could give you a more experienced suggestion

i would install an additional 1.25" BL and 1" MML with the 3.5" RE lift. then you have more room for the 35s and the rear driveshaft angle should be ok without a TC drop.

RE Short arm 3.5" Superflex lift (ended up being about 4.5"s ). with BFG A/T 33x12.5x15s.



I can't say enough about how good RE's customer service is and how much I like the product.
