recommended lift

i am planning on running 33x12.5r15 tires and am trying to figure out the best 4 inch lift kit that is preferably under or around $1000 and when i do purchase the kit what other parts would i need to purchase to make this work. i plan on doing a moderate amount of offroading and lots of highway driving.

I am assuming you are speaking of a suspension lift. To do it right you will need a SYE and a custom drive shaft. Possibly a motor mount change too. Different rims or big spacers will be needed to run those tires or a lot of washers on the steering stops.

I daily drive my jeep on the rough country 4". It beat me to death until I got adjustable control arms. Now it isn't too bad. It probably didn't help that I ran bias pitbull growlers 33x12.50s for a while. I don't think I really needed that much lift for them and they were not very good on the street. I'm now running mt/r kevlars 35x12.50 and thinking about getting the aev 3" springs to bring it down just a little.

I'm running 33x12.5r17 on mine with only 2.5" of lift. I drive mine tones as it is my only vehical. I've got the Rancho 2.5" lift kit. It's cheap and really does the job. If you want 4" then that's cool but if you just want to run 33"s you can get away with a smaller lift and not have to worry about messing with driveshafts or anything of that. When it comes to offroading you will be supised how far and the places ou get into with jus a 2.5" lift and 33"s
