help me decide on a lift?
 
me: '05 80k miles, all factory stuff

got a pretty good deal on these here: (255/75/17)

probably going to plasti-dip them

the shocks/struts that are on there now are obviously shot, so time to upgrade. I'm leaning OME HD as that seems the most proper. I'm also open to suggestions as it seems there are quite a few people with different shock/strut + (RC/RRO/daystar) type lifts and are very happy with them.

my jeep probably spends 95% of it's time on the pavement, I know that should have some impact on the decision.

Help! Please!

No lift, I went through the debate myself a few months ago.. I love the smooth ride on the road and with most lift you loose that.. plus once you lift it then you have to look at getting bigger tires because its gotta look right.. which to me means worse gas mileage and at 17 miles per gallon on hwy it was not gonna happen.. im looking into getting a older Cherokee with a good motor and transmission that can I lift and have as a toy so my daily driver can say smooth... just my opinion though

2" RC lift with Bilsteins.. smoother handling than stock IMO.

Nope, only had 40k miles on the suspension so didn't really do so, but will do if/when upgrading to OME or coilovers in the future...
