Question Another 2.5"-3" Lift Recommendation Thread

Friend has a 2003 Tomb Rider Edition Jeep and is looking for a modest lift that will clear 33" tires.

What would be the best route without having to modify drivetrain. The kit he is looking for must have better coil springs and include everything needed.

1. Old Man Emu 2.5" Suspension System



2. Skyjacker 2.5" Standard Lift Kit with Shocks



3. RCD Suspension 3" Lift Kit with Bilstein Shocks



4. Black Diamond 3" Suspension Lift Kit



Please let me know of any other parts or issues I should be aware when doing any lift (yes, an alignment is on the list after we install the lift).

Or any other lift kit that I left out and should consider.

He might go with aftermarket bumpers later on so the lift kit needs to be ready for any additional weight from those.

And since I like to post photos...... We need to take better photos, but these will have to do for now. Thank you all in advanced!!








Some information I came across as I researched this special edition.

The Tomb Raider edition Rubicon was a limited run of just over 1000 units, made available for sale in July 2003. The package started with a bright-silver Rubicon with dark slate interior, and included exterior accessories:
  • A light bar across the top of the windshield
  • Black tubular grille guard
  • Fog lamps with brush guards
  • Tail lamp guards
  • Riveted fender flares in graphite
  • An aluminum diamondplate appliqué on the front bumper
  • Tomb Raider badging
  • Interior accessories:
    • Silver instrument cluster bezel
    • Silver center stack bezel
    • Red seat belts
    • Special dark slate seat covers with red accent stitching
    • Tomb Raider badge with serial number
And a photo of the one used in the movie:









Lara’s unique vehicle (three were built for the film) boasts an array of functional modifications, such as a roll cage with grab bars, a skid plate with simulated HID lighting and an interior with specially designed gauges, shifters, instrument panel, console and door trim.

The aftermarket components used to complete the Lara Croft’s Jeep Wrangler Rubicon include:
  • Hanson Enterprises front and rear bumpers
  • Mickey Thompson 35” Baja Claw tires and Classic II wheel with bead locks
  • Skyjacker Double Flex 4" Rock Ready long arm system
  • Warn winch and Bushwacker riveted fender flares

Old Man Emu gets my vote. I dont have personal experience with any of them listed but just from doing my own research I have found OME to be always close to the top of the list.

And another side note....being that the Tomb Raider Wrangler is a limited edition production...I don;t know If I would even want to start chopping that thing up and removing "original" parts. The Jeep may or may not ever be worth anything extra, but it will never be authentic again once you start changing stuff.
Just some food for though.

That is a very good point. All changes are of the bolt on type. And he will save the original parts.

X2 for KBR97...I too have the Tomb Raider and am conflicted about modifying as well! I am considering the same...3" lift w/33's. I have seen several with these mods, and it didn't take away from what it is, but just doesn't seem right to do! In addition, I have ditto about OME seems to be the top of list...

I run an OME kit. You can't go wrong with it. I really like it.

But I voted for the RCD kit because it is more complete.

Either kit you go with you'll need bumpstop extensions to run 33s.

Without a BL, you'll need 2" front bumpstop extension and 2-2.5" in the rear.
With a BL, you can remove 1" off those values...so 1" front bumpstop extension and 1.5" in the rear.

I think the kits brings the bumpstops. But I will make a note to check when ordering. Thank you!!

Thanks for posting this Jaime. It is good to have a friend like you, Angel, with all his add-ons, and I, with all my questions, really appreciate your help. Guys, I am the owner of the Tomb Raider edition. By my research in the forums I learned thet you guys either love them or hate them (bunch of haters!!!). I just wanted a jeep and found this one locally for a decent price. I Like uncomon cars and this seems to fit the bill. I can only find one for sale on Autotrader.com, and for a lot more than what I paid (and twice the miles). I would like to tastefully modify it, I don't want to copy the real one (at least for now ).
First thing will be the lift and Jaime (AKA: WACHUCO) Kindly offered his help. Then bigger tires, I still don't know if I am going to keep the original wheels on the new tires (open to suggestions). Also a winch is on the list, For know with the stock bumper. What else would you do?

Question

I really like the RCD Suspension 3" Lift Kit with Bilstein Shocks if only because of the Bilstein shocks... but being new to Jeeps I have no frame of reference. And it has been difficult to find any reviews on it for Jeeps. Very good feedback on their kits for the pickup trucks.

their TJ is pretty new...so thats why there isn't a lot of reviews. Like I said, I run OME and am very happy with it...but since you're new, I voted you go with RCD because it has a more complete lift kit...with bumpstops and such. OME doesn't include enough bumpstop for your application, and you'd need to do further research to determine what you need.

He ordered the RCD Suspension 3" Lift Kit with Bilstein Shocks - US$ 699.99. Is backordered so it will take some time to get here...

While we wait, just a quick question that came up. With that suspension setup, what would it take to run 35" tires instead of the 33"?? Justa 1" body lift would do??

And if he goes with 35" tires, what additional changes would be needed to the drivetrain??

and... baby steps, fuel door installed.

i would think that you might need one or two more inches to get 35s to clear in turns. so maybe 5 inches all together, also if you have a dana 44 (witch yours should) then thats ok, a dana 35 will need to be regeard. and a SYE kit and cv driveshaft should be installed. upgrade your braking and stearing sytem also

That sounds like a significant amount of money to be able to run the 35's... ouch

Thank you for the info

I am guessing you meant 35s"

That was my thinking as well... If running 35's, go with, at minimum, a 4" lift.

But was just asking since it came up during a conversation with the owner of this Jeep. He checks this thread, so if he wants to ultimately go with 35's the time is now to cancel the RCD order and order a 4" lift kit... but there are additional parts needed that we would have to figure out.

RCD kit for 4" lift - 899.99

32s will fit great with 1" bumpstop extensions front and 1.25-1.5" rear and no body lift.

I don't know what bumpstop length comes with the RCD kit, but I do know what the OME kit comes with.

The OME kit comes with 20mm bumpstops for the rear, which isn't enough. You need at least 1.25". You can make that difference up with fender washers if you like or buy a 2" bumpstop extension and cut it down by hand. Otherwise the shocks bottom out and the rear track bar relocation bracket will hit the underside of the tub floor. Notice I said nothing about tire size.

Again, tire size is independent of lift height.

stay away from the poly bushings. the poly bushings are my major complaint with the RCD 4" kit, otherwise its pretty complete (the Daystar jounce bumpers are useless so you'd need to get new front bumpstop extensions, needs longer front brake lines, and don't install the drop pitman arm)..., you could always buy the kit and put Rokmen, Clayton or Currie arms on it...then sell the RCD arms...kinda of a waste of time tho, IMHO.
