People are going to recommend different brands of lifts, and I certainly would endorse the AEV lift, but in the end you have to look at what type of off roading you want to do and then do some research, and pick the best lift for you.
^^ Good stuff.

He's right on about the individuality of it...there are plenty of quality lifts out there: the AEV mentioned, TeraFlex, Rock Krawler, OME, MetalCloak, etc. They all have different characteristics, however. The AEV excels in on-road ride; the TF and RK are very expandable, should you decide to go that way in the future...

Like Chrimbler said, the key is figuring out how you wanna use your Jeep. Then go from there.

My advice: keep it as simple as possible, unless you have specific requirements that dictate otherwise. 2.5" lift, smaller wheels with 33s or, at most, 35s (the 35s can entail other costs, FYI, such as gearing, aftermarket tire carriers, gussets for your front axle Cs, trimming pinch seams, etc.).

Not a problem doing more and going bigger, for a reason, but for everyday use I'd stick to the recommendations above...

themoonman23 okay so a coil lift is more for off roading and weight right? may I ask what is a spacer lift?

themoonman23 It's cos I really don't know the difference between spacer lift and coil lift. I do want to do some off road later on and maybe add some weight but first the lift. As you can see Im a noob at this...

Chrimbler Well if you do the work yourself, depending on the manufacturer of course, and you want an actual spring lift, not just spacers, then around $1000 give or take. I put the AEV 2.5" lift with geometry correction brackets on and this is what it cost.
Some of the other kits 'appear' to be less money, but then when you add in shocks etc, they all pretty much end up within the same ballpark.
Now if you just went with a spacer lift, then you can spend a lot less.

Do some research? That's a very broad question. Are you looking for a spacer lift or coil lift? Are you adding weight to your jeep? Doin any offroading? Try looking at quadratec.com just to get a base estimate
