Now i've seen some 4" lift kits online for around $800-$900 dollars. Am I gonna need to drop any extra money on other parts or will most of the kits out there complete the lift in full? Im debating between saving for the 4" or just doing a 2" bb lift. Im not gonna get real hardcore, this is my dd and im prolly just gonna do some trail riding and some mild off-road. I just really like the look of the 4" lifts over the 2".

btw, I dont wanna do a body lift. Purely suspension.:wavey:

Also if anybody can post some links to good deals on complete 4" kits that would be awesome! I dont wanna go cheap and chinsey, but I can't afford to spend a fortune either.

I spent 750.00 on a procomp 4" from www.4wheelparts.com. But I need to still buy front and rear tract bars and a drop pitman arm for the front. Oh and a new stabilizer shock.

And if you get driveline vibrations maybe a slip yoke eliminator and driveshaft.

I'm going to do a 4.5in lift from Rubcon Express

is the exact kit I want. It has the SYE included, so hopefully no headaches. It costs a bit more but I think in the long run it's the vest route for me. I like hitting the trails and I also have a lot of soft sand. The best advice someone has given me yet was, "Save if you have to, and only buy once. Don't build up to want you want." In other words, just buy everything as a functioning system, it's less expensive that way. OME Old Man Emu has a lot of nice kits also you can look at. The RE is a bit more extreme.

I'm not planning on doing hardcore off-roading but I know me, I will end up doing it anyway, too much fun not to. So I opted for the slightly more beefed up version.

i would buy a 3.5" rubiucon express suspension with some good shocks like OME. the 3.5" RE has 4"-4.25" in real.

the kit costs about 550$ + some shocks.

don´t do a BB. it´s wasted money. you´ll want to install a real spring lift very fast after you installed the BB. the ride with a BB isns´t as good as most people (with a BB) say.
i still have a BB and am waiting for my ordered spring lift.

personally i would go with this;

http://rustysoffroad.com/mm5/mercha...ys&Product_Code=TJ3K&Category_Code=sus_tj_kit

you wont need the CV/SYE kit, you can also upgrade the shocks for $350, get a BL and MML for $100 (good deal), if u want

3" should clear 33's pretty well and if you find they rub you can always put on a BB and MML

if you have the money, you chould do this

rough country II ~ 530 for everything.
the question is if the cheapest lift kit on the marker is good enough for him...

@Chad P:

i saw in your signature that you alkready have a 4" procomp lift and 33s.

did you already order the lift? cancel it. you won´t like it. it´s very stiff and gives not a better ride than the stock suspension.
