PStov98TJ DPG packages together great products. I don't think you need his tailgunner kit. Though. Look into his Ultimate kit. It's cheaper and is the essentials for everything you need in a lift to fit 33's and be very functional on and off road. If you don't mind me asking, about what is your budget? That may help us guide you to something that is quality that you can still afford.

Wattapunk You should look into a 2-2.5" SL combined with a 1.25" BL to run the 33's. Although I wouldn't go this route but you can also do a 2" spacer lift/ 1.25" BL (this is the cheapest route)

Jlins How much do those lifts usually cost?
Because the main problem is my budget.. I 33" found tires and rims for 365 from a friend but I need a lift for them. I will be doing some off not extensively. I currently live in Utah where there is quite a lot of off roading but come April I am moving to florida where it is relatively flat. So I am wondering whether it is worth the extra cost for the minimal off roading that I am going to be doing.

Wattapunk Agree with calling DPG offroad for lift suggestions. There are alot better quality and better riding lifts than Skyjacker. Look into OME, Zone, or BDS lifts.

KaiserJeep Do yourself a favor, go here and pick one of these lifts instead:

DPG Trailgunner TJ Hybrid Kits |

DPG will work with you and customize spring rates to your exact needs. The components are all high quality, most are made in the USA except for the OME components. I have had a DPG lift on my Jeep since 2005, and I'm happy with it.

These lifts are combinations of suspension lifts, body lifts, and motor lifts. They take a little more time to install, but they are worth it.

Water Dog I put a similar lift on my Jeep about 2 years ago, and am slowly changing out all the parts in it not because it's terrible, but because there is so much better hardware available. If I had it to do over, I should have done more research and saved up more $'s to put my own lift together. OME springs, Currie Control arms etc. That lift comes with about an 1 1/2" transfer case drop which, while it works, isn't the best thing if you plan on wheeling. It also requires that you relocate the front track bar by drilling another hole in the existing bracket. An adjustable track bar would be much better....JM2˘

Lift Risks

I was thinking of putting a lift on my jeep and I was wondering what the risks were... This is the lift I am gonna buy.
Any advice?
