lift kits

I was just looking for some insight on the best 2-2.5 inch lift kits as far as performance and quality go I'm looking at about $350-400 as my budget.

Save more money and then lift. The LAST thing you want to do is put a cheap lift on your Jeep. Just my .02.

My opinion would be the Rancho 2" sport with RS9000XL shocks.

You can get cheap lifts, but they also cheap out on the shocks... And the shocks effect the ride more than anything else.

For that budget just go with a budget boost and set of Rubi take off shocks if you don't have a Rubi.
