help with 3" lift

Guys,is this a descent lift to put on my jeep? I don't do any major 4 wheeling. I use it as my everyday driver with some light trials on the weekend. I'm pretty new to jeeps so any info would be greatly appreciated.I'll be putting it on a 1998 jeep wrangler sahara.I don't have the money right now to spend $500-$600

If your trying to do this on a budget, I'd suggest saving a bit more and getting a decent lift. I'd only use pucks like that if they were 2" on stock springs... but if your looking for 3", I'd look for a lift that offers new coils, and control arms. Because at 3" your stock control arms are pretty much at thier limits.

Personally, I wouldn't do a budget boost above 2.x inches. Also about the only Pro-Comp shocks I have heard good things about are the MX-6's.

do a 2" budget boost (spacers) and 1" BL). you get 3 inches of lift, it looks good, it performs well, and its cheap (BB with shocks and the BL for under $350 depending on which BB.) it could be as cheap as $275 or $300.

I am in the same area as you. I have been a sports car fan/driver my entire life and am very new to this jeep thing and all the lingo is confusing. I will keep an eye on this thread to see the replies. I try searching as much as I can but I dont think i get the abbreviations right. Sorry to thread jack.
