What type of lift do you plan on doing? Lots of choices.

thanks for the reply wanderlust. truthfully, I don't know where to start with the lift. I do alot of passes yet don't need lots of mods. I have about $2500 to 3000 to spend on it. it has 167k on it and needs a new soft-top so I've priced out two shops and they want between $1400 1600 to start for the 3-4 inch lift. Does that sound within range? Tanner's a good choice? Any info or help with who is best qualified and if there is any problems I can come back without major agg, would be greatly appriciated.

I would avoid Bach Crawlers in monument have really bad experience with him. He does not stand behind his work. I have a thread detailing the experience.

If you are not going to ever go larger or if you do go bigger you go all the way bigger, I would just research and spent the money smart. Look for some used stuff, get some good flexy short arms, sye kit ect. You may want to consider finding a d44 rear axle unless you are lucky and your jeep was optioned with it. Sounds like you are more interested with not getting stuck in the middle of nowhere then jumping around rocks with a group of hoodlums. With the age and mileage of your rig you can almost assume that most of the suspension is shagged out anyway.

Best price for lift install was R&R off road.
