    New guy- increasing height on JK economically

    Hi all! New to Jeeps, but excited! Looking to raise height inexpensively by 4 or more inches. Have 32 inch tires (P255/70 R1, and can't spent a ton of money. What system should I consider and where in Southeastern Mass/RI can I trust to be fair in pricing? Thanks all!!

    Caution with the budget lifts that go to 4" or more. You might save on the lift but end up buying yourself a bunch of alignment challenges and maybe even the famous death wobble.

    I went with a Rubicon long arm lift. It was in about the third quartile price wise and I have been happy with it. Friends went with much cheaper systems and have a bunch of issues....my money was well spent.

    ^^Agree^^
    2in budget boost is ok but 3 or more require more changes.
    If you are going 4 in or higher long arms help keep geometries.
    Is the purpose of the lift looks or function?
