2000 Wrangler Sahara Lift Questions
I have a 2000 Sahara 6 cylinder that has about 167k miles that I was hoping to get another 50-100k out of.

I just had the frame rebuilt and want to know what kind of lift kit/tires/wheels i can put on it.

I take it to the beach on the weekends, so I was thinking somewhere around 2-1/2" to 3" would be good.

I was also quoted $500 parts and labor for a 2-1/2" lift.

I'm also thinking about getting it painted..

Any suggestions on that and wheels/tires?

I just ordered a 3" suspension from extreme terrain I got the zone lift and am going to be running 32x11.50x15 bf Goodrich all terrains mounted on the mb chaos 15x8 wheels and my jeep is a 2001 6cyl. I just recieved the lift last night and will be hopefully installing it this weekend. I think it's a pretty nice setup not to big and not to small!

500 for 2 1/2, I'd assume that is a budget boost but you should find out more information and exactly what it consists of.

What is your total budget for the lift, wheels and labor? (note a lift is easy to install and will save a lot of money)

Hey there..

Sorry for the delay in my response.

I talked to the guys at the shop where they do the installs, and they said that the lift was for coils and shocks for the 2.5" lift for $500 and to do a 3.5" it's coils, shocks and a control arm for $650.

The make of the lift is Rough Country.

Thanks again!
