    That is a big can of worms of a question Killer...you are going to get more opinions than there are sand fleas in Parris Island! What exactly are your expectations and tell us a little bit about your driving style?!?!?

    I wouldn't buy any lift labeled as "economy". Save up and go for the real deal!

    4" lifts need alot of other parts that most "economy" lifts don't provide.

    4x4groupbuy.com. You can get the lift, sye, drive shaft and shocks for a pretty damn good price. Check with our vendors to see if they can beat it obviously, but this is just where I got mine a couple years back.

    X2 Take good look at the opions here and you will see soooooooo many great options.Take your Jeep out and see what it can do and then fig what you will need for what you want to do.TJ's have a lot of good options pick'n the right one is the tuff part.With a 4" lift you are going to want a SYE and drive shaft,33"s area good size and you won't need gearing.Just remember what Jeep stands for,"Just-Empty-Every-Pocket".Wheel it and have fun.

    my $.02 that i'll give isn't in regaurds to the lift to buy cause that is TOO much to talk about and way to many questions that need answered before you go into what you "should" get. Quadratec is a very well set up website and great for browsing and finding out what you want. As far as price goes once you start comparing them to other sites. On most stuff they are quite a bit higher in price. Check out Rustysoffroad.com for some very qualilty and modestly priced lifts.

    ive been to quadratec many many time its just that limited budget and i dont know what side items are reqired to make the job complete yet. my buddy bought a 4" superlift had a place called tricky truck put it on for him and thats that he said he didnt have to buy a sye driveshaft or non of that, just the lift. but i know diff. jeeps work in diff ways.
