Should I expect any complications with this lift ?

97-06 Jeep TJ Wrangler 1 ┬╝" Body + 2.5 Lift Kit Combo:eBay Motors (item 360177121159 end time Aug-11-09 09:57:07 PDT)

I am going to mostly do wheeling on trails and such. I plan on going for 31'' or possibly 32'' if I can get enough clearance. I would like a decent off road machine. Would I need any supporting modifications to run this set up ? I am on a budget hence the body lift + suspension lift. Thanks

Rough Country hasn't always had the best reputation in the past. My old RC kit was riddled with problems.

That being said, why not look a spacer lift and a 1" body lift. With a 2" spacer and a 1" body lift you'd have more than enough space to clear the size tires you're planning on running. Actually you could get away with just the 2" spacers. If you go this route you won't have to modify much of anything other than getting a good, professional 4-wheel alignment.

Well, my car is already in need of some shocks, so I just decided to get a lift done while I'm at it. I would rather just get a complete kit rather then buy and piece together my own, if I can get a better deal and quality out of piecing together my own kit, then I would go for that.

Just for future reference, you will get a ton of grief for referring to your Jeep as a car.
