looking for a good lift kit

I am looking for a good lift kit bigger than a 2 in. I was thinking about a 3.5 I s there a kit out there that doesn't make me mess with the driveshaft angles. I am looking for the biggest bang for my buck. My 97 se is a daily driver and is just an entery leval jeep (no lockers or anything fancy) I have 31's on it now but rub a lot with no lift. Thakns for any help

I would just put a 2" spacer lift on and call it a day. It will give the 31's more room and cost is not that bad. Plus you should not have to do anything to the driveshafts or t-case.

if your gonna keep the 31's then, as stated, go with a spacer lift...do you rub when turning or when flexing? if its when flexing then yes of course you need the lift but if it is just when turning then you just need new wheels with proper backspacing...but i assume you already know that

A spacer lift and a 1" body lift would give you 3" and let you run 33's if you want to.

Do a DPGOFFROAD.com deluxe kit. It has all the components needed to run 33s. Do some research on the ride quality of the OME kits. You will be extremely impressed and it won't require driveline modifications in most applications.


I'm getting ready to put the super ultimate kit on my soon to be wife's jeep
