Wanna buy 3" suspension lift any suggestions?

I have about $400 to $600 to blow. So I figured the best thin to add to my 04 TJ would be a 3" suspension lift. Can anyone suggest the best brand for my price range, or atleast some ideas of where i should start.

It all depends on what you want the lift for.

Rubicon express without shocks should fit price.

Rough Country 3.25" for $380. Comes with all you need and you even have a little extra for gas to take her out!

the rough country 3.25 is 2.5 suspension and .75 pucks, not true 3 inch suspension, plus quality of zone is slightly higher for 20 or 30 bucks more. and RE without shocks is not good. you cant run a lift without aftermarket shocks lol... well you can but you shouldnt and youll just ruin stuff

Quick Discos are nice but not needed unless you are doing some good off roading and want to disconnect your sway bar links in the front for better flexing. As for Adj Trac Bar I'd say yes because your rear end will be shifted over and I am not sure on 3" if they make a drop bracket or not. As for the front end on my Jeep with 3.25" it stayed centered but that is not gonna be the case for every Jeep.

thanks for the last bit of advice. I guess I will wait on the quick connects another couple weeks, but i want it lifted already and i'm very impatient.

You have not said what size tires. If that is the general height you think you need, you can cut the cost and keep it simpler with a 2 - 2.5 suspension lift and a 1 -1 1/4 body lift.

Do not be impatient and do it right.

you can get the zone lift from vendors on this website shipped for around 420. and I believe there is a trackbar drop bracket included in the kit, ask one of the vendors to check for you if they dont know off hand. discos are just convenient to have and not too expensive.


Their is nothing wrong with the zone kit, it is very complete and gives you everything you need. then he can add a BL later. why waste money on a small lift if hes just gona want a bigger one later? the zone setup with BL is a very good setup.

I think im just gonna get the 3" zone lift for now. Little later get the quick disconnects and steering stabilizer later. My rims and tires just got in today will probably have on tommorrow evening. Depending on how it looks will determine on how quick I order the lift.
