Lift options?
 
Hey everyone, I am looking into getting a lift kit for my 2001 wrangler. I was looking into a 2 or 3 inch lift. Nothing to big, but enough so I could put some bigger tires on it if I wanted to and have some decent clearence. I am completely new to this though and need some help. I have no idea if spacers or springs are better, or what brands I should stay away from. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I would also like this info consolidated into one thread I've done some searching but hard to find the right answers... To respond I havnt heard much good about RC lifts other than it gets job done but don't expect to be comfortable but that's just what I heard

Go with a spring (suspension lift) first. Make sure you check the laws in your state. Some states limit the amount you can lift. Base the size of your lift of what size tires you want. I have a 4" suspension lift by sky jacker. You will also need to up grade your track bar and steering stabilizer or you will get the death wobbles.

If you want to do a nice lift go with a 2 inch OME and add the 1.25 body lift. I even put in a 3/4 spring spacer in front which gives me 4 inches of lift so I can have good room for 33 inch tires when disconnected. This way you do not need to mess with drive shaft mods or other things that may be affected if adding too much suspension lift. Save the money for other things like heavy duty tie rods, etc. Just my opinion here.

The Wranglerforum search doesn't work so well in my opinion so I use Google.
You can search a specific domain on google for keywords etc. This works much better.

I have the RC 3.75" lift. Its a combination of a 2.5" suspension lift with a 1.25" body lift. I've had no complains thus far.
