New JK - Should I lift it?
Previous Jeep: 2008 JK Sahara Unlimited w/ 2.5 inch suspension lift and 33 inch tires
New Jeep: 2011 JK Sport Unlimited - no mods
Here's my issue: The 2008 looked great but it was like driving a bucking bronco at times. Now I have the 2011 and it rides real nice.
I really want to lift the 2011 but I don't want to loose the ride I am enjoying.
In lieu of a suspension lift I'm looking at 2 inch spacers with 33 inch tires.
Would I still loose the factory ride if I went with this combination?
You can go mild and get a level kit and leave the same size tires if you got 32s it will look good and keep the same ride.
Personally, I'd stay away from a spacer lift, I've seen the "hockey pucks" shift after a hard trail ride or even after hitting a large bump at higher speed. As mollyg mentioned, a budget lift would do you well or you could do a small lift like a 2-1/2 inch.
This is a very popular subject and here are a few threads that may provide more info.
Oh, by the way I'd also like to say:
Welcome to the forum! :wavey:
If you want to keep or improve the factory ride, you'll need to spend some money. I'd suggest an AEV 2.5" kit with the geometry correction brackets.
