Best Budget lift 1.5-3 inch lifts ?
 
bought a 09 overland and im looking for a good budget lift. i want to fit a decent size tire and still have some what of a decent mpg. aka i don't want to loose 4mpg by lifting and larger tires. any help would be great i have looked at the day star lift,rocky road, sky jacker, ome, rough country and a few others and they look all similar. when i do the lift ill so spacers wheels and tires and the pinch mod if needed. i think i want to fit rubicon take offs :confused:

dont lift it with bigger tires if u want to keep the same MPG

im running the 2" RC lift with 255/70R18 sahara rims and tires and get 18.5 MPG give or take abit
but i do 0 highway driving so i guess i could average more if i didn highway

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!
