Lift kit for 2013 JKU Moab
 
I am new to Jeep and new to this great forum.
Came from a Landrover LR4, but wanted something more fun. Settled on a beautiful Bright White 2013 JKU Moab. Amazing machine! Excuse my enthusiasm but this is my first Jeep. Will do some back country camping in Death Vally, White Mountains and Joshua Tree.
What are good options for a "mild" lift kit? I am thinking 2-3". And does anyone know of a decent shop in Bay Area that can do this?
:) Cheers,
Thomas

Wow big change from a lr4. I actually worked for land rover for 10 years as a technician. How is it going from luxury to a little less luxury and more utility?

Move has been great. Love the potential for customization. And just adore the dual top. Striping the Moab down naked has been great fun. Could not do that with the LR4. But I did enjoy the LR4 and going off-road. LR's are very good off-road. Just not utilitarian enough for me. In the early 90's I did own a LR Defender 110 Diesel. That was a mean machine for going off-road. But alas, I am so happy with my Jeep. Driving around with a big smile all the time now. Never did that in the LR4.

When you say "Back country camping" do you mean driving on gravel roads or are you talking about 30 mile trails taking 10 hours to traverse due to the rugged terrain and getting you deep in?

I love doing a lot of "overland" type off roading as i am not into breaking and scraping my 30k machine on rocks lol i find a budget boost perfect for that kind of off roading. Match it with a good pair of shocks and youve got yourself a very capable machine.
