So I realize that a 4" may be what I'm going to go for. Yes I realize most would go for a 3", 3.25" with or without a body lift, but it's not the road I want. The driving I'll be doing is mainly a DD but also a weekend warrior. I am looking for a 4" that hopefully will include all necessary information including any SYE and shocks. I am also a little light for my budget, and would like to get this suspension lift sometime this summer. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Check out skyjacker, pro comp, rubicon express, or rough country. Most lift kits do not include a sye. Advanced adapters has a nice sye for a good price or you can run a transfercase drop which is usually included in most 4" or higher lift kits. Good luck on your decision.

i got the the zone offroad from forum member AOR... it comes with a transfer case drop, some people say thats bad and go with an SYE... but it works for me so far.
x2 I also got a zone 4" kit and works well with everything that comes in the kit. Is around the same price as the other cheaper lifts too. The local 4x4 shop near me stocks them and said they install alot of the kits and no one has had any complaints.
I second the Zone 4" kit. I installed it on my 2000 Tj around 1000 miles ago and have absolutely loved it thus far. Rides very smooth on the road and flexes great offroad. The install was not bad either, the instructions were very detailed. No vibes for me, but I used their big (1.25"?) TC Drop
I called my 4x4 shop since they sell the BDS/zone products, and they quoted me, and this is if I order through them and have it installed would be $1400. But the lift is only $560, how the heck do they get it up to $1400?? Is this what every 4x4 store does? And an fyi, they say it will be cheaper to go through them to order it.
i got my rock krawler 3.5 xfactor kit from 4x4 group buy, and they gave me a great deal when i bundled ome shock, rancho ss, and tom woods shaft. usually they include sye and shaft but i didnt need sye
Clayton! I have had Clayton lifts on both of my jeeps. Best on and off road kit IMO. My first 97tj came with a rc 4 inch oft and it was awful. Stiff off road, flex wasn't great and you can tell some parts were cheaply made. That all changed when I put my 5.5 inch Clayton la lift on. I'm all about saving money, but if you go with this lift then you will end up saving money in the long run. But good luck with the lift!
