Just bought a 2000 tj sport this weekend and cant decided what lift to buy. Ive read review after review and still cant decide. I want a good lift kit that will do good on the road and off road. I really want a rubicon express but dont really want to spend the money. Is there a good lift I can get for 1000-1200 bux??
If you want a affordable good lift 4" I would go with zone. It is not a rock crawler lift but I like it.
I bought mine from Rock n Road jeep outfitters. Great kit.
Talk to Clay if your interested i got the up graded nitro gas shocks n a steering stabilizer for $590 shipped all you need. Buy you have to ask for shock boots if wanted.
If you call use my name Josh I talk to him quite a bit. Im from south of Chicago.
I also went with the 3.5" RE SF w/ adjustable track bar and adjustable lower control arms and the whole kit cost around $1250 from 4x4 Parts, Accessories, Tires, Fender Flares, Rubicon Express, Poison Spyder Customs Like Ed said it really is around 4.5" of lift and is perfect for 33's. I haven't done a SYE yet and have very little vibration (that changes from Jeep to Jeep). At least go with their mono-tube shock if you don't go with another manufacturer. My kit came with the RE shocks in that price as well.

I just put the Zone 4" on and I put 33" Wrangler MT's on there. It is working great and only $529 for the lift. There is a lot of drilling, so if you are doing it yourself get a good set of bits. Stay away from titanium bits, they break too easily. Good Luck.
In my opinion the rough country 4 inch longarm is the best lift for the money,you can find it for about 1200 ands its complete setup,and simple to intall in your own garage,great road and offroad manners
How does the zone do offroad??? I want something that will still do really well in the woods.
I have not taken mine off road yet, but the only draw back to it is the transfer case drop. It lowers it back down and 1" or so to get the drive line back in line. You can change out the rear drive shaft and get an SYE and then remove the tcase drop. Then, you will get a bit more clearance in the middle. I am not too worried as I have gained almost 5 inches clearance from before and I was running over some big stuff stock. Jeeps rule. Just put a skid over the oil pan or engine, then your diffs and you are ready for just about anything.
Look when I bought my rc longarm I didnt think it was going to be that much diffrence but I was surprised.I found mine on ebay for 1150.00 the asking price was like 1299.00 wife talked the seller down to 1150.00 still think best buy, comes with everything the customer service at rough country is great to work with, when my lift come to the front door felt like a kid at christmas everything came all at once and it was all there cant go wrong with the product
