well you know after a 2" lift you will want more later right :)

I rather go with 4" kit since its not that much extra. What I'm saying is spend the extra 200 bucks now and get the bigger lift than getting the little one and then buying a whole new lift to replace the one you already have.

How do you know that they want more lift? I didn't get that from the original post?

i thought that if you went with a 4 inch lift you ran into more things like a slip yoke eliminator. Is this not true?? Is it just a couple hundred bucks more to get a 4 inch over a 2 inch??

I'm pretty sure, from what I've read (don't depend on me though, cuz I'm new to this), that over two or three inches requires a list of other things that may need to be adjusted. But I could be wrong. I'm looking at two or three and don't think I'll be going any higher than that.

iamagolfspaz, how much wheelings do you do? If little, 2" would be great for larger tires if ya want them, and with the ones you have, that would be enough for a little more play when you wheel. But if you plan on taking some of the more difficult trails, I might look into a 3"-3.5" kit You don't want to jump from stock to 5" or anything, but 2" isn't a whole lot if you plan on wheeling a lot more offen than you used to.

Yes a 4" does require either a tranny drop or a yoke eliminator but if you are not planning on spending more than 1500 on a lift alone than 4 would be the best... any over 4 is just too much for short control arms and long control arm kits are over 1900$ so they are pricey. Rough country sells 4" lift for $530 and i've seen cheaper around my yahoo searches. Now i'm not an expert but i my self am thinking of 4" rough country lift with 2" bodylift which should be around 6"

don't leave it the way it is.

unless you got the cash for sye and cv driveshaft then stick with something smaller. if you want to clear 33's do a 2" coil lift and a 1" BL. i recommend the rustys 2" coil lift. got it and love it.

nah you need to get the sye and cv driveshaft. a t case drop is just a band aid :) sye and cv can cost around $500.

First off, nice rig. Second, your question is pretty broad. How do you use your Jeep and what are you trying to accomplish with a suspension lift? The reason I ask is that there really are a million correct answers to your questions. If you could eloborate a little more we could give you some helpfull advice. :)

Are we talking about the jeep or the yota?

iamagolfspaz 12-18-2006 02:05 AM

Mostly i want a little more room under the tires.I just put 30,s on and i would like a little more clearance.

Odhinn 12-18-2006 05:29 AM

After a 2 inch suspension you might have to much room under the jeep (I can't believe I just said that) and have to run 31's Dependant on your own taste. If you aren't going to be to extreme there is an adjustable coil spring spacer kit (like a budget boost but adjustable). I'm not sure how much play you would have with the kit. The max lift is 2.5" on the one I read about and I am guessing there is enough play in the adjusters to find the happy place. I have no experience with this kit so I wouldn't trust it for heavy offroading. The ones I have seen run around the same cost as a basic suspension lift of the same height.

I ran 2" coils with a 1" body lift and 33's on most of the trails at Tellico with no problems. Obviously there are trails you wont be able to do, but you don't need any more than that to really enjoy your jeep. If you want to go extreme, spend the money. You just need to decide how much you're willing to pay. Another piece of advice, learn how to drive your rig off-road, not that you don't already know. I've wheeled with guys with a lot bigger jeeps than mine described at the beginning of this post and sat waiting on them to winch out, back out or other time consuming task just so I could drive on through. Learn how to read the trail and pick your line. Bigger toys aren't always better, you have to know how to play with them.* Of course, if you have a lot of experience off-roading already, then please disregard.

*Above statement not directed at any member of WF.com, since I haven't got to wheel with any of you guys yet.:)
