Muddr1 Just got the lift in yesterday, tires and wheels going on this week, long ride next weekend, I will let you know then. Before I did all the work, I was getting 19-20. So I am anxious to see what I will be down to.

TexasJeepGirl No matter what size lift/tires you go with, anything bigger than stock will negatively affect your fuel economy. Gearing choices will also tweak your fuel economy as well.

MattCap How is that affecting you mpg and acceleration?

TexasJeepGirl Running Zone 4" on 35's with STOCK driveshafts and zero issues. Love it so far.

Muddr1 I just installed the rancho 3'' sport lift. If you buy the lift and 4 shocks, which you will need anyway, you get a 300 doller rebate.
Just got done with the install yesterday. The lift with 4 9000XL shocks were around 900 bucks through amazon.

HK_Runner $300-$400 for the driveshaft. All you need is a 2" lift...even just a budget boost for 33/34 tires.

MattCap How much does changing out the drive shaft run? I think I'm gonna how with the BDS 3" lift with 33/34 inch tires

jsmithtx Anything over 2.5" will require drive shaft replacement on the front end.

nocibur2 I chose to go with the BDS 3" suspension lift for my '13 Rubicon. I went with the basic kit with the standard BDS shocks. I like their "no questions asked" warranty. Time will tell!

JTPhoto JK For best results, less headaches and a decent price stay under 3".

What size tires do you wish to run?

What will you be doing with your Jeep and how much wheeling do you intend to do?
