Hi all new here!!! Just bought my first Jeep recently, a 2010 JKUR. Not sure why I waited to get a Jeep!!

Eventually I would like to get a lift kit and bigger tires,just not sure where to start or what companies to look at. I was thinking about a 3 inch complete lift kit. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

I am itching to take it off road soon, only problem is there aren't any trails near where I live here in Minnesota.

Welcome and congrats. My advice is to find a few trails and take it out just like it sits. It will most likely surprise you how capable it is just as it sits. You will also get a feel for what you may need (lift, armor, tires, etc) for the types of trails you ride.

As 4fit said, you should try your Jeep out stock first, just to get a feel for it. A 3" lift kit is gonna cost you quite a bit more than you think...especially if you do it right.

My advice would be to take your time, read the forum, ask questions...you'll learn a shocking amount in a fairly short period of time. I guarantee that if you run out and buy a lift next week, a month from now you'll be thinking to yourself, "Damn. Wish I'd known that when I spent the $$ on my lift."

You've got about 11 months till the world's gonna end, according to the Mayan calendar. Use a good bit of that time researching and planning your build, and you'll enjoy your Jeep all the more when you're wheeling through the charred ruins of civilization next Christmas. :D

Welcome to WF.
Just do not install a 4" lift and 35" tires
and complain about something gone wrong. Don't want to get on KB's bad side- now that he told you so :whistling:

Hey there. You got a Rubi so it will be plenty capable off road right out the gate. Do your research and a few of the companies on my short list are Teraflex, Rock Krawler, and Synergy Suspension (Poly Performance). All make killer products and lifts.
