Re: Best Budget lift 1.5-3 inch lifts ?

Rough Country 2" lift! I got it, love it!! But I do warn you... I wasn't planning on lifting my Jeep and then I found this site...and now I am currently saving for a 4" superlift!! LOL

Hemi 2" lift on 255/70R17 and if I drive 63 on the fwy I can AVG 22 MPGs ish... But I can't drive 63 so I go 70 and get about 18 MPGs haha

Good luck!
