    Good entry level TJ Lift

    So I got a Rubicon express lift installed on my '16 JKU Rubicon, now I want to replace the crappy ProComp springs and shocks I installed on my Wife's '01 TJ Sport. Any suggestions in the 2.5 - 3" range? The ride of the PC hardware is like riding on cinder blocks.


    Appreciate any input.

    Thanks.

    For my son's XJ lift we went with a Zone Offroad 4.5" kit. The bit of research he did showed that Zone runs a lower spring rate than most of the other budget kits. The hydro shocks are a generic white shock but his Jeep rides great and, once it settled in, hasn't lost any of it's original lift. Zone has a 3" all-spring kit for your wife's TJ that would be worth looking into.
    Direction, then velocity.

    Did you happen to keep the factory coils from the jk? If you did, you can run those with a 2" spacers on the front and will gain about 3" of lift and a much better ride. We did it on my neighbors 2003 TJ and it rides much better. You can even use the shocks with a little work

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.
