Re: 05 GC Budget 4" Lift Kit... Where Can I Buy?

theres really no such thing as a "budget" 4" lift, your only option is the superlift- and as ive seen around the net, those kits are hard to come by.

Budget kits are around 2 inches. Rocky Road Outfitters, Rough Country etc... They will net you around 2 inches of lift in the $200 vicinity.

Your next step is the OME, which if you go with the OME HD will net you 3 inches for around $300 for the springs plus the cost of shocks.

Then there is the Superlift for $1500 which will net you 4 inches. Or you can spend crazy money on the JBA which will do nothing more then the SL but cost double.

Now I know what your thinking. why don't I just put a $200 lift on top of $300 lift. Well by all means go for it but understand that you will cost yourself a couple thousand in repairs if you do so.

As I have said a thousand times, do it right, do it once and buy the Superlift.

What about the rock krawler x factor 3.5" lift. Its fairly budget for under $500.

No offense but the RK is the biggest POS lift made for the WK. It nets less then 1.5 inches at best. It's the last lift I would ever consider installing.

^^^ That's why I sold the RK kite I bought and moved to RRO instead. I've heard horror stories about the RK kit.

If you are looking at spending RK kind of money, I'd steer towards the OME HD. The RK is absolute JUNK! Ask me how I know...

Glad that lift was debugged. Good thing I brought it up. What about a poll on who has what lift to see personal opinions for discussions as these
