    I'd suggest a "build plan" first and foremost. 99% of us who have lifted Jeeps have gone back and either changed or fixed something based on our lift and tire combination. Try to envision what you want your Jeep to be capable of doing, what you'd like it to look like, and how much money you want to feed it.

    Beyond that; suspension systems are not where you want to look at the cheapest kit you can buy. Spend the money doing your lift right the first time, ensuring that you buy from a reputable company that sells "upgrade kits" for when you decide that 3 inches just won't cut it.

    I myself am a big fan of Rubicon Express since even there base kit is easily upgraded by adding a few parts.

    Another company that builds "upgrade-ability" into their systems is Teraflex.

    I just got done installing my lift today. 4.5 RE Superflex with 3.5 springs. I absolutely love it. Got it from redrock4x4. I've looked at tons of forums, pictures, reviews about different lifts. Its all what you want. There are tons of options to choose from.

    If you want a better then factory ride and to fit either 32 or 33" tires then go with the OME kit from DPG with 1" jks BL for 33" tires Rides like a cadilac and with the last 3 jeeps we have put this on there were no vibs at all

    If your just looking for a little higher, just do a budget boost. It wont change any suspension geometry, steering geometry and will give you the look your going for. Especially if you're not changing tire size.
