Welcome to the forum.
If you need help installing the lift, let me know. I did a Rubi spring/shock swap on mine until I can save enough for a lift. It would only take 3-4 hours to install it. Just thought I would offer to help.
I'm in the Springs by the way.

2" no 2"
Here is my Jeep on 35" and a 2" body and another Jeep on 33" ...

|xirtic||I am a big fan of coil lifts over spacers....this is a personal preference. I wanted 2"....so I ordered Rusty Off-Road 2" Coils and paired them with the Skyjacker m95 Monotube Shocks and new front swaybar links. I look forward to installing this solution soon. It is a $500 solution to get a 2" Coil lift. It fit my needs and budget...and should offer pretty good performance.|

|Naiche||Will that Rancho lift improve the ride? I know it's a Wrangler we're talking about - I'm just curious. Another noob here. Thought I read somewhere that certain lifts can improve on the stock ride. Did i read wrong?|

|chum1600||I ordered that Rancho kit. I'm excited about getting it on the wrangler. Just need to submit my rebate form. There are several pics around the forum of guys that have used this lift. Getting the 9000 shocks with the kit really swayed me to that. Adjustable for whatever driving conditions you are in.|

$100? that's insane.
|03-11-2013 01:37 PM|
Best bang for the buck, IMHO.
This kit is $375 from Amazon for a 4 door and Rancho is currently running a $100 rebate, making the final cost $275 shipped to your door.

As you add weight, springs will compress. How much they compress depends on the amount of weight and the springs themselves. Aftermarket springs are typically taller so even when compressed, they will still be taller than factory springs.
Your factory springs should have a tag on them. Look at the last two numbers on each tag. What are they?

|AirBreather||Well that just opened a can of worms. Why would the springs sag if I add bumpers and rails. SHould I go another route and if so what would the options be .... I do appreciate the input.....|

|SilverSport||From your description an inexpensive spacer lift should be the ticket. A couple of inches of lift for looks to go along with the new wheels and tires.|

I will not be doing any extreme rock crawling. But I do travel forest service forest roads in my quest for the elusive trout and elk. Not to mention searching for gold in some rough areas.
I am going to put on bigger tires and change the factory wheels. And, truthfully, I do think it would look cooler if I raised it a little. As of right now my Jeep does function well. I have not had it very long and want to customize it somewhat....Nothing extreme....

I have 2 inch lift kit on my JKUR, and I am very happy with it.
It is AEV. It is very affordable (I bought it through Quadratec, and as a member of this forum, I got free shipping).
It is high quality product, and unlike many out there - it is made in USA.
Good luck and welcome to forum !

|SilverSport||Welcome Aboard! Tell us why you want to lift? Is it just for looks or do you plan to do a lot of off roading? Then we may recommend a lift based on your needs/wants.|

|jkmohican||The OME 2" lift is a high end lift. A lift this size won't be horrible to do, if you have the tools and jacks. Its a lot easier to find 2.5" lifts than 2" lifts for JKs. Teraflex, OME, Rancho, Rock krawler are all good. Rough country and sky jacker are the budget lifts. Remeber, you get what you pay for. These lifts are anywhere from 600$-1200$ depending on what's included.|
