Mudweiser Would of been wise to make a new thread for that subject. Posting a question unrelated to the topic of this thread will not likely get you an answer here. Not that anyone was ignoring you, just no one was reading this thread :P

Nth Degree from AEV?

Anyone have an opinion on the Nth Degree 6 inch lift kit from AEV? I have one on my TJ, was there when I bought it, so I wanted to find out the pros and cons from some experienced drivers.

The only people who think 2" of added clearance is enough for 33" are inexperienced newbies.

Body lifts do not look good. You hit the nail on the head...driving over bumps, dips and offroading.

Do not do a 2 inch body lift. If you want to look cool and not really use the Jeep for off roading, put in a 2 inch budget boost and add the 1 inch body lift and the 33 inch tires will be fine. You may have to drop the transfer case a bit if you get any vibes but since you are not doing any off roading that wont bother you.

I-Want-A-Jeep It really depends on what you're doing with your jeep... If you're looking for more extreme offroad capability, RC may not be the best choice.. If you're looking for a lift that can fit 33s just to fit 33s with normal driving/mild offroad, then it'll be just fine...

Those two don't go hand in hand and this is no different. If you want cheap, go RC. If you want good, do another couple months of solid research and get ready to spend some money. There's a lot more to it than bolting up some longer shocks and running longer springs.

will 33's fit on a 2 inch lift kit?
