How much does it cost to lift?

I have an 07 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. It's about ready for new tires and I would like it lifted just a bit.

Since it's fairly new to me, once you lift, will the same tires work? Not looking to lift it 50 feet off the The ground :-) but definitely a left sense I'm 6 feet tall and love to be up higher.... Also. Is there a difference in the way it handles in the rain and snow

Thanks much ;-) ~

I did a 2 1/2" lift on my TJ. Didn't notice any diff in rain or snow. Since you have a JK I can't speak on that. I don't think that it would make a diff on a JK either.
Look around on various sites and you'll get an idea of prices. You can go for cheap (not recommended) to expensive, or somewhere in between. Do some research and you'll come up with a lot of valuable knowledge.
Good luck....

I just ordered up the teraflex performance leveling kit ($399 shipped ). Lifts 2" in the front and 1" in the rear. New front swaybar links. I will be putting them on next week. I'll let you know how it goes. before/after pics

Or the teraflex 2.5" lift would give it some nice height, comes with everything but coil spring. Im thinking about putting this exact one in myself. Just don't know how im going to get under it I don't have a hydrolic lift.

I used the TeraFlex 2.5 spring s and shocks. Ride is better than stock, even at 80 mph.

If you want a great place to install for inexpensive price check out No Excuses in New egypt NJ. Otherwise fire it on yourself and get an alignment.

I would check out Globex Performance. Globex Performance The Jersey Shore's Jeep Experts! They are a NJJA sponsor and do great work esp with JKS. They are located right near Toms River/Lakewood.
