My wife owns a four door 11 soft top. I'm looking for a lift/tire combo. This jeep is a daily driver and I do have 2 small children. I just want to increase the ride height a little and give the jeep some aggressive looking tread and stance. I don't do much off-road but will hot the trails from time to time. Any suggestions would be great and pics of them would be awsome. Thanks for the time.

I'd recommend looking for a set of Rubicon springs for your Jeep, and running 33" Duratracs (since you live in upstate NY...DuraTracs rock in the snow, and come siped).

You want the Rubi takeoffs to be 19's (front) and 60's (rear). If you look at the top of your current springs, you'll see a tag that tells you what stiffness they are. Last two #'s in the sequence are the spring stiffness. If they are, for example, 14's up front and 54's in the rear, you'll get a lot of bang for your buck outta the 19/60 Rubis.

Depending on your current setup, the Rubi springs will net you 1-2" all by themselves. On top of that, add a leveling kit to fix the natural rake of your Jeep, and you'll be right around the 2" you want, and still be able to eat a filet mignon for dinner at a nice restaurant.

Good luck with it! :thumb:

I just recently purchased a 09 Unlimited (4x2). I do not go off road hence the 4x2. I did want to give it a better stance. I added a 2" lift (coil spring spaces front and rear). It took about 2 hours or less in the garage. I picked it up from a local off road parts store(Cajun Offroad) for 140.00 with tax. You can get these spacer kits everwhere including eBay for about 120.00 or so with out shipping. I kept the stock tires since I had changed them about 3 months ago. After the install and a reallingment it looks much better. I have a 3 year old and a 18 month old and both my wife and I have no problems getting them into their seats. In fact the 3 y/o can still pull himself into the Jeep by himself. I was told that anything more than 2.5" of lift then a shock replacement is highly recommended.
