    Post Which Lift

    I have a 1998 Sahara I want to put a lift on it, which lift should I get? I want to put 35s under it and there are so many options, which is the best? I would like to put at least 4.5 inchs but am willing to put more. Also it is a 4.0 L with a manual transmission.

    What are you going to be doing with it? Crawling, mud, trails, street?

    Do you want a long arm or a short arm? What's your budget for just the lift?

    Whatever you choose to get, at that height you'll want all 8 adjustable control arms and adjustable front and rear track bars.

    I have been real happy with my Teraflex LCG lift/ LCG stands for low center of gravity and it incorporates a 5" spring lift, 1" body lift, adjustable upper and lower control arms with rebuildable joints, sway bar disconnect and high end steering that mounts on top of the knuckle for more clearance up front. I run 35" with no issues and if I adjusted my bump stops I could run up to 37".

    I run the same lift (Max, not Pro). I love it. If you're going to run your Jeep on the street alot, go with the LCG Pro, though.

    Kind of spendy, but you get what you pay for....

    LCG Pro...keeps it streetable (as in stock-like ride or better), and has a ton of flex for rocks and trails. Suspension has very little to do with how well your Jeep does in the mud...that's all tire and HP....

    Since you haven't posted a budget yet....
    I'd vote this:
    http://www.quadratec.com/products/16300_417.htm with a 1" body lift

    or this:
    http://www.quadratec.com/products/16300_419.htm
    but i'd swap out the 4.5" springs for 3.5" springs and get a 1" body lift

    I am in a similar question for myself. I have a JK and want to get something just enough to get where I want but still drive to work everyday.

    From what I have seen/read a long arm while a lot more expensive is almost a must do. Now I just have to save all that money.
