JK Lift on a TJ

So I'm looking to get my TJ lifted a few inches. I stumbled upon this lift kit and I was wondering if it would work on my jeep. Thoughts? Also, if this would work, is it a good price for what I'm getting? And would 31 inch tired look good with this?

unless your tj is secretly a jk it will not work.

Looks like all it is are springs and shocks. I believe the shocks will bolt up and the front springs will fit. The rear springs however are a different. TJs use shorter, larger diameter springs than the JK.

that is a 4 inch JK lift. that means 7 inch TJ lift. all of the parts WILL NOT work. i can see in the pics the bottom shock mount wont work for the front. not to mention all the parts the "kit" is missing. it also says new in the ad which it clearly isn't. this is a bad buy for anyone with a TJ.

I've already put the jku rubicon front springs on my TJ and lost height. I had the stock TJ springs with 2" spacers and now my rear is jacked up higher. I will be putting on the rear springs and shocks soon and seeing what happens. I might have to put the spacers back in to regain the height I want.
