My advice is if u want a 4 inch lift to teraflex but if u want a cheap budget 4 inch lift go rough country. I have found that teraflex is the best but rough country will get the job done also. And for a top...... Bestop is the way to go!!!! Don't get anything else and nothing less!! The frameless tops are nice that Bestop make but it's all up on what kind of look ur going for.

Stick your $$ under your bed for 2 months and research and research. Decide exactly what you want from your TJ (Rock eater, Trail rider Mall Crawler). Read some of the build threads, search the forum for lifts you are considering and their pluses and minuses. This will help you save time and not waste money. I'd take a chunk of that and change all fluids and inspect and correct any steering issues to have a solid base to build from. Then do what you want and what will serve your propose for the TJ.

Most of all whatever you do have FUN!!!

Don't go cheap, remember, you get what you pay for. Don't rush, get quality parts, you'll be glad you did.

My experience with RC lift has been good, I wouldn't be afraid to go that route and use the money you save for other stuff... Good luck whatever you do.

Nice looking Jeep!

You have an "X", so you have a D35c rear axle. Looks like you already have some lift and 33" tires. The 33's are pretty much the limit for your stock rear axle.

I would save, research, and address that first,......If you want to go bigger.

Get a genuine Jeep hard top. You'll never regret it.
