The "Budget Lift" Pieced together

Hello Everyone! So I have been reading and reading and still can't decide on a lift kit for my 99 sport so my question for you all, What would be a good lift about 3-4.5" piecd together can anyone pass along a parts list? Im trying to stay under $700 I'm a disabled vet on a fixed income so this lift is pissing me off lol

Me to brother. I would recommend the zone lift. It is economical and good. I don't own it but a forum member here I trust a lot loves it and I have never heard a bad thing about it. If on a budget and not having an already lifted one it Would be my choice.

Edit. Hmm Doc. Me to lol.

I've been here a while and that's the best you can get on a budget I know of. If you were already thinking it sounds like your on the right path brother!

I have a 3" zone lift on my 97 and I love it. Rides pretty nicely and plenty of flex. Good lift for the price and comes with everything except for a front trackbar and a rear trackbar (if you decide to not use the relocation bracket)

I need to update my LJ. It came with a RC 3.5 and it rides really rough and the rear shocks are blown. I have been looking at the Zone 4.25 for mine. I have 33's on it now.

I am a DCC in Great Lakes

Cheapest way is 2" budget boost with 1.25" body lift. Then to get your travel back pick up a set of Teraflex bar pin eliminators for the front ($30) and use your angle grinder to make a set of JK take off shocks fit (have to grind the bottom mount a bit, can also work for a 3" suspension lift IIRC)($0-100).

So $300 and you can have a jeep that rides just as good if not better than stock (if you get the JK shocks)

Source: My rig. More droop than any man needs lol
