Now that I've introduced myself in the newbie forum I have a question. I am wanting to lift my 2004 Stock Sahara 2-3". I'd like to do it myself. I am pretty sure I have plent of at home mechanic experience to get the job done. I do not want to do this cheaply nor do I want to spend a lot. I'd like to go up to 32-33" tires eventually.

With all that said what kit do you guys recommend. I am wanting something that does not require major structural changes. Bolts and nuts preferably.

These are the lifts that are typically recommended on here. Avoid Skyjacker and Rough Country.

If you have a <$600 budget, check out Zone. If you have $800, check out BDS and OME. If you are looking for the really good lifts ($2000+), check out Metal Cloak and Curry.

I meant to ask. I am sure it's a matter of preference, but body or suspension lift. I'd think suspension is more reliable and better off road. Body more for looks? Think I answered my own question. :)

Actually one of the best and most popular ways to lift is a combination of the two. Body lifts of more than 1.25" are not recommended. Not only do they look bad, but it's kind of like building a house on stilts. I recommend you check out the OME ultimate kit from DPG Offroad. It is a medium cost kit with very good on and off road manners. Old Man Emu is a highly respected suspension parts builder. And the folks at DPG will help you to get the proper spring rates for your set up. Old Man Emu Ultimate TJ/LJ Wrangler Kit | dpgoffroad.com
