totally NOT the "recommended" course of action, but if you're willing to give up handling and stability for looks, then it's probably the best course in your case.

|TomJK2011||To tell you the truth Im not a extreme off-roader. Yes i do go off-roading but the places I go to, can be easily done with my stock Jeep as of right now. I kinda want the look, the 2inch with the 2inch body lift makes the best sense to me. It keeps it simple and still looks good.|

If you're just going for a huge look and aren't going to really wheel it, then look at 2" body and 2" suspension lifts and combine the two. splitting the two will keep the complications down. Going higher than 2" on either will cause you to have to address a lot of other things like brake lines, steering and driveshaft geometries, bump stops, and all sorts of issues. 2" of each will keep those issues to a more manageable level for a non-offroad type of guy.
the resulting 4" of lift will clear tires all the way up to 37", but you'll need an expensive regear to go that high. 35" is resonable for a stick and 33" for an auto, depending on the ratio you have stock.
having said all that... keep in mind that the bigger you go, the less roadworthy your jeep gets, and it wasn't really designed to be on-road friendly to begin with...

|TomJK2011||ok so basically quality first, i will do some more HW. Any suggestions for a lift on a JKU?|

Please don't call your Jeep a car.. Thank You...
Also on a JK anything more then a 2.5 bb or full sl is over kill for most JK owners IMO as you can fit 35's on with that much lift. Of course with the larger tire size your probably gonna want to regear also and thats no cheap. You'll also need new wheels

|aelwero||I think the word "economy lift kit" used in conjunction with 4-5" makes for a scary sentence... could just be me though...|

|TomJK2011||i dont really wanna do a BB, i kinda have the mentality of going big or going home. I think i wanna go with a full kit. What are some options if i go with a 3inch kit? or maybe even if i move down to a 2.5inch?|

teraflex 2.5 in BB is a good option for the Jks clears 35in tall tires and not very expensive.
