Lift Kit Ideas

Just bought a 2014 Jeep wrangler unlimited and I want to buy a 3" lift kit for it but now sure what to buy. Mostly buying it for the look. Don't need something to extreme for off-roading.

I am looking at AEV, from what I am hearing it is the best riding lift out there. Also I love the stance of the Jeep after install, it just looks right. Unlike some of the other lifts out there.
Also if you are lucky enough to have an AEV dealership you can get it installed for a very reasonable price.

TeraFlex 2.5" Budget Boost with shock extensions is a great starting point. At some time down the road you can easily upgrade to a TeraFlex spring lift if you feel the need.

Yep and if you have the stock sport shocks. For $100 or so grab some takeoff Rubicon shocks

There's also a kit with their 9550 shocks for a bit over $500

gotta love budget poser wheeling ballers

Oh well to each their own. Its all good man just messing with you.

I've seen some 2wd wranglers lifted over 4" so whatever. Hey maybe he wants to do some light crawling/mudding and knows he doesn't need coilovers or a long arm kit.

It all comes down to your budget and what the intended end use your Jeep is.

For DD and light wheeling a quality Budget Boost is more then sufficient to give you the look, the stance and the handling/ride of stock. Ad some nice shocks to enhance the ride. Not everyone needs a rock proof lift.

More aggressive off road then look to a quality spring lift that you can depend on. Be prepared to pay more for the heavier quality parts.

AEV has great kits but are designed as Overland Expedition type wheeling. Not the same as rock crawling.
