Advice on Suspension lifts for a Wrangler 4 Door
 
I need some advice....I have a 2010 Jeep Wrangler 4 door hardtop that is a dailey driver. I am going to put 35/12.50/17 tires on it Mickey Thompson MTZ's...I am going to do a 2.5" or 3.5" suspension lift. I went to the Jeep Dealer and test drove a new one with the same set up that had a ProComp lift and it drove great but I don't like ProComp lifts. I was looking at Rubicon Express 3.5"..Anybody have any advice or pro's or Con's on lift brands. This won't be used as a hard core wheeler because we use my TJ for playing in the woods but it will go offroad some.

Good question. Disclaimer time: I am one biased mofo. I own and drive every stinking day on a Rock Krawler 3.5" lift, and Bilstein 5100's. I love it, and it handles and rides incredibly well for what it is (a lifted Wrangler on 35" mud terrains). Their kit is great, their tech support is awesome, and their warranty is solid- you break it, they replace it- no questions asked except that if there's an awesome story involved, you send pictures :)

Now, from what I've driven, here's the good, the bad, and the ugly:
Good:
Rock Krawler
Teraflex
Poly Performance
Old Man Emu

(Not that) Bad:
Pro Comp
Black Diamond
(Slightly less)Bad:
Rancho
Skyjacker
Superlift (yes, it's almost the same as Black Diamond, but crappier shocks)
Rubicon Express

The Ugly:
Rough Country- wouldn't put it on my worst enemy's JK (their other stuff is vaguely passable, but their JK stuff is all fecal matter, pure and simple, especially if you wheel)


For going down the road, the Pro Comp will be fine- their shocks are alright, and their stuff is pretty not bad. Personally, I say go for it- Mark W.
