With a 3.5" lift you'd be in 33" tire range. You might need to get flat fenders or a BL to eliminate all rubbing. Also, look into a SYE and CV driveshaft for this big of a lift, your drivetrain will thank you for it.
High quality brands would be Currie, Savvy, Clayton, Rubicon Express, Rock Krawler, etc.
Some more affordable but still fairly good quality brands would be Zone, BDS, OME, etc.
Of course, everyone (including myself) thinks that the one they own is best and will recommend that one first.

What tires will you have. Small tires will look stupid, bigger tires require $$$.
Four 31" Duratracs just cost me almost $800

|NJO||For the $500 range I'd say save your money..........do some research.........save up a bit more and look into getting something better. Zone/RE/RC.............entry level stuff that leaves alot to be desired. Id actually take the $500, get a quality BL, raised steering riser, and MML and do the prep work to get your vehicle READY to be lifted properly.|

|5spdftw||I swear, how do guys get wrapped up in this RC crap? Is it the first Google search result for "Cheapest, roughest riding, least durable lift for my TJ Wrangler"? Please don't get RC dude. Trust me, it's worth it to save a bit more and not hate your Jeep after. I'm not saying you have to spend $$$$ on a kit like a Currie, RE, Savvy, or Clayton but at least pay attention to customer reviews before jumping on the cheapest lift you can find. There's a reason it's the cheapest.|

|Rubicondon53||No one had mentioned it , but if you go that high you will undoubtedly have to install a slip yoke eliminator kit.. Another 2 to 3 hundred dollars.|

|rdock31||AOR (Allen) vendor gets pretty good deals on Zone products. Check him out|

|thgr8alex||Ya id stick with zone and get it from a vendor on here to save you money and use your morris 4x4 for extras like quick discos or control arms or stuff. Or you could just send it my way, i sure could use it|
