That was kinda was I was sensing in your post... hard to tell with text, but it sounds like the best fit.

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.

what exactly do you intend to do with it?

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...

XJ Knight 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

Agreed. Don't skimp with your suspension. If it's an off road trailer queen that's one thing. Do you really want to put your life on the life with an "economy" suspension?

When you go with a lift, you want to make sure you get a quality one. We see a lot of guys go the cheaper route on lift only to have to redo it later because it sags or they dont like the height. So, make sure you get a quality lift that you can grow it when you need to. Some of the more popular ones that come to mind is Rock Krawler, Synergy Suspension, and TeraFlex. Each one offers a 2.5" lift that would work great as a starting point for your new build. There is Pros of each with very little Cons! Feel free to let us know if we can help. Shot us a PM, email, or even call and we can help get you setup with a coil lift that will fit your budget and suite your needs!
