Looking at budget lifts. Opinions?

I'm looking to lift my 05 limited. I've looked at the RK, Teraflex, and RR lifts. Who has them? Problems? Advice? Anything will help.

I'm probably going to roll around on the stock 245-65R 17s for a little bit until I find what I want. Figure it wouldn't look too bad with that mild of a lift. They are fairly knobby all terrains.

RK in the house. 3-1/2" longer front strut forks, 2" poly spacers in the rear. Going on 4 months with no issues. It cost a bit more, but I got a good deal with free shipping. You could spend a little less cash and get the same amount of lift. In hindsight, I wouldn't choose one over the other, inluding the RK.

Re: Looking at budget lifts. Opinions?

I love the RK kit and it my top pick. Teraflex, RR and RC I like too.

Bell22- do you have a link to what yours looks like with the RC on it?

Moabs are the wheels I want. Love them.

Re: Looking at budget lifts. Opinions?

A Superlift is by far the best budget lift out there. In the long run, you will want more. Spend a little more and get the best! GetRDone!

Re: Looking at budget lifts. Opinions?

Well the girlfriend bought me the Teraflex kit so that's what I'm working with. Hopefully will have time one weekend soon to do it. Can't wait.

Re: Looking at budget lifts. Opinions?

just ordered me the RC 2" lift... 150 for 2", with steel spacers rather than plastic... cant beat that. Also ordered me a set of bilsteins to throw on there... should be a good all around lift... gonna roll on a set of 265/70/r17 BFG ATKO's with 1.5" spacers. Originally i was going to go with the RK lift but the place i ordered it from was back ordered and didnt tell me it was going to take a bit longer until 5 days after i placed my order .. hmph! hopefully the tires wont rub, but it will be a nice budget lift and so far with all the reviews/comments/etc i've read on this board it seems like everything is going to be ok.
