    Default Lift suggestions

    I have a 03 Sahara with a Skyjacker 2" lift on it for now. Looking for a good all around 4" lift to replace it. I wanna run 33 inch Mud terrains.........I bought a 08 patriot as a daily driver so its time to get stupid.

    Long arm or short arm?
    Whatever you get, I'd look for something with JJ's instead of rubber/poly bushings in the ends.

    I really don't even know the difference and which does what.............I had all CJs before my TJ leaf springs are easier to understand. I dont plan on doing any insane crawling but want something that has decent road manners

    Do you have a budget, and what size tires do you want to run?

    I would look into the OME heavy load lift. It claims 2", but it's closer to 3. Do that and a 1" BL and you'll have plenty of clearance for 33s and still keep your center of gravity low. I'd also probably get an adjustable front track bar and a rear track bar relocation bracket. Everything listed will probably cost right over $1k.
    Down the road if you decide to expand on it, you can get adjustable control arms, long or short arm.
    I think most people I've talked with say this kit rides better than stock.

    I know quadratec's got the lift for around $750.
    Search around though, you should be able to find it for a bit cheaper.

    rubicon express, find a local dealer or a place online thats willing to cut you a deal, they only offer adjustable trackbars, numerous control arm options, and great warranty should something break. its highly doubtful youll hurt something from them though. quality product.


    DO NOT BUY rough country, tough country, rusty's, cheaper procomp stuff, cheaper skyjacker lifts

    DO BUY- claytons, rubicon express, teraflex, old man emu

    theres more that coule get put into either category but this is all i could think of at the time.
