    One plus for the day is that I've named my Jeep.

    How high should a lift be, and what's a good bang for the buck, American made lift kit?

    I'm going to get a ton of crap for this. Check out metal cloak. Their tj kits look pretty legit. They are made near Sacramento, I believe.

    I usualy put my kits together to get what I want. Last one I did ended up with 3 different brands of arms with the front and rear springs being different brands as well. Its more work but one can get the results they really want with the mix n match approach. Ive never seen a "kit" where I liked every aspect of it. As far as height 4" with proper wheels and bump stops and youll be fine
    Beat it to fit, paint it to match

    Avoid it... Ran skyjacker before. Wasted my money.
    Edit, I understand that for a tj, options differ from a jk. But I was really disappointed in their quality.

    Thanks for the heads up. Is there a lift kit you would recommend?

    I'm avoiding the mix and match advice. Not because I don't think it would work, but mostly for ease of purchase and shipping. But thanks to holliewood61 for putting his time in to offer his opinion to a newbie.

    For a tj, I have no clue. Never really thought about it. I had their lift on my jk.

    I've heard and seen good things about both the Currie and Rock Krawler TJ kits. And for 33's or 35's, I personally wouldn't go higher than a 3.5" lift.

    This one has the Old Man Emu lift components, 1.25" body lift for a little more clearance and to run flat skids, track bars, and shocks. Great combo lift, plus you don't have to mix and match everything since it's all here

    BUT if you really want a 4" lift, look into the Currie or Savvy offroad 4" kits. Great quality stuff. Skycrapper, Rough Country, Fabtech, Procomp all are terrible

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
