Hey all! I am new to the Jeep world and have purchased a 2010 Mango Tango Sport that I want to put a lift on. I dont want to spend an enormous amount of money on this left, but I want something to beef it up a little more. Local technician told me I can go up to 3.5".

I have looked at Rough Country and a few others, but wanted to ask what everyone's opinion was. Having a hard time deciding on kit, shocks, etc.

Can you put shocks and lift kit like the Rubicon has on a Sport? Anyway, thank you all so much for your time. I know this question has probably been asked 1000 times already, I just couldnt find the thread. Thank you!!

What size tires are you going to run. Unless you are also going to get bigger tires you may want to avoid much lift. You can run 35" tires with a 2.5" lift.
The cost to properly do a 3.5" lift is around twice the cost to do a 2.5" lift.
Is it stock right now?
Rough Country is near the bottom end for Jeep lift kits. As many have said before, they don't call it "Rough Country" for nothing. RC lifts are common of Jeeps people are flipping. No issues with the way it rides if you are going to sell it.
The final question is how do you intend to use the Jeep? Are you going to do much off roading? What type of off roading?
Keep in mind that ride quality on road is just as important as capability off road. And a better lift can deliver both.

I have 35s on it now. Will keep those. So maybe I’ll stay with a 2 1/2” lift. The Jeep will just be used as a weekend cruising the beach and a little off road, nothing major.

This is my two door with a Teraflex ST2 (2.5") lift and Falcon 2.1 shocks with 35" BFGs. It rides incredibly well and is very solid, sporty even, in the handling. It has been much better than I expected and performs much better than stock.

Manual and still running 3.21 gears until I upgrade the front to a Teraflex Dana 44 axle next month. Then it will be 4.88 or 5.13 if I decide to go up to 37s.

Without a budget, it's hard to recommend a lift. Literally, there could be a difference of $1000.00 between lifts that are advertised as 2 1/2". Some have shocks, some have track bars, some have control arms, some do not.
