I'm a little confused by that statement. If you get a coil lift, you'll be getting new coils. And if you're gonna get shocks...

Unless you plan on running mondo tires and crawling rocks, you might wanna look at 2.5" lifts by TeraFlex, Rock Krawler, OME (2", I think) and AEV. All sell good, fairly comprehensive kits. Not sure what the attraction to Nitro shocks are, but you can always buy something like the TF 2.5" lift and pair it with Bilstein 5100 shocks from Dave at Northridge 4x4 for $700+, IIRC.

Like I said, if you get chintzy on the lift, you could very well end up spending a lot more than if you bought a good lift from the get-go. Just my .02.

Billmac22 Thanks alot! Thats good to know. I appreciate the reply. The Daystar have alot of lifts in the Essentials magazine. My coil spring are good...don't think I'm going to replace them...probably just a coil lift with shocks (nitro I guess). Thanks again.

Daystar 3inch lift kit?

Hey...I have an 09 Wrangler Sahara 4dr and about to go with bigger/wider tires...either 33 or 35 inch. Was wondering if anyone has any info about the Daystar 3 inch lift with Scorpion shocks. Just wondering if they are crappy or well made. (also looking at the teraflex 2.5 lift kit) Don't have much experience with this yet.
Thanks
