    Best prices on Jeep lift kits?

    For all of you Jeepers out there, where have you found to be the best/least expensive place to purchase lift kits from? I am looking at a Rubicon Express kit for my 1996 Jeep ZJ 4x4. I would like something in the 4" to 4.5" kit.

    I know jeeps have a much bigger market, but 4Wheel Parts sold me my Pro Comp 6" lift for my 08 chevy cheaper than I could find anywhere else. They also do free installation for Pro Comp if you don't feel like doing it yourself. It's a good place to start, but maybe some of the jeep guys know a better place. I've seen a lot of places that cater to jeep only.

    Start doing some reading at Jeepforum.com

    Here is a YJ I built from just a naked frame:



    2004 4.0L
    NV3550
    Ford 8.8 in the rear
    HP D30 in the front
    ARB's front/rear

    Anyhow, I found that you can find prices on eBay the same as Rubiconexpress.com, but many eBay'ers offer free shipping.

    Tight wooded trails...the one thing that makes me wonder if I should have gotten a Jeep instead of a fullsize :( Oh, and when they close part of the trail, you don't know about it, there's no place to turnaround, and your jeep buddies all turn around and go while you back down for a mile until you find a spot wide enough to turn around.

    Lol C9.

    There is a cliche saying that goes "It's a Jeep thing, you wouldn't understand" but it sounds like you do understand.

    CT-Mike, nice YJ, but as you probably know the TJ doesn't have leaf springs...

    Tally, as CT-Mike recommended, JeepForum.com is the best place to research this; but the most popular kit I believe is the RE SF 4.5" with 3.5" coils.

    I am contemplating doing this with my LJ one day; but have found that with the 2.25" BB I have on now and my 31" MTs I can go most places where rigs with larger tires and lifts go. The Wrangler is a highly capable vehicle to begin with, and can do a lot with little modification. Plus, if you use it for a DD, a larger lift may not be the best option.

    Cheers! M2

    M2,

    I am aware the TJ doesn't have leaf springs. I was saying that I put a 2004 4.0L into my 1988 YJ.

    Thanks so far. Not wanting this thread to turn into "arguments". I just wondered where the best prices have been found on kits. I will likely go with RE 4.5" or the Rock Krawler kit. I may even piece one together. I have welding skills and access to a welder. I just dont have time to make good jigs to keep all parts equal length.

    Mike, I ended up buying my RE kit striaght from RE just for the great customer service. I tried ordering it from other companies to save upwards of $200 and got miserable service.

    Have you posted this on NAXJA or FJOA?

    in addition to 4 Wheel Parts ...Check :

    Quadratec
    or
    National Tire and Wheel

    I sell Truck Accessories, and can tell you I cannot compete on Jeep lift kits. RE has great deals on their kits. And from what I can tell, they are good kits.

    If you're in FL go to www.floridajeepers.net . Some folks there run ZJs, at least a couple years ago they did. I know there is a Tallahassee group, I've met them at the annual spring scramble.

    Tally XD is a member of FJOA and the Tallahassee group. I don't get to see him often, but I consider him a friend... :)

    I can still remember the last time I wheeled with him... He had a white XJ then...

    I like Quadratec also...

    Yep. Been a member at FJOA for a few years now. I also am founder of the Tallahassee club, "Capital City Jeepers" that you encountered at Spring Scramble.


    I am new to purchasing Jeep stuff. I usually fab it myself but I no longer have time to do that.
