    Lift kits

    Iíve had several jeeps in my years but never a lift kit. Iíve heard too many negatives as far as ride and handling among other things. My jk is a daily driver and we donít hit any trails because there arenít any near us. I would like to potentially do some easy trails in the future but donít want to sacrifice a decent ride quality. In your opinions do lifted jeeps today ride like crap or even much different than stock? I donít wanna deal with death wobbles and being all over the highway etc so I need some insight. Thank you!

    Sounds like from what you're planning on doing, you could always trim the fenders and throw some 33s on it. Saves money on a lift kit and won't change your ride quality.

    Rancho makes a nice, inexpensive 2Ē lift kit that comes with shocks and springs for less than $500.

    EVO makes a nice leveling kit that will give to 2+ inches in the front and less in the rear. Kit comes with front springs and rear spacers for around $350.

    I hear that both of these kits are real nice! Many report a better than stock ride with the EVO kit. I personally donít have either one since I had the means to build my own budget boost, but wouldíve purchased one of these if that werenít the case.

    I went with the EVO leveling kit. I did throw on some Rancho 9000s for fun. I will say the ride did improve from stock.

    I started with the rancho 2Ē sport lift and it rode better than stock with the factory tires. Once I went to 33s it changed a bit but was still a great ride.

    We went with a teraflex 1.5 inch leveling kit with nitto ridge grapplers 33s. This is on my wifeís 4 door Sahara and it rides great. The stance is amazing looking also. Get a lot of compliments on how nice it looks.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
