2010 jeep wrangler sport lift thoughts

Ok so I just purchased a 2010 jeep wrangler sport about a month ago and I'm looking to get a lift put on next month I was looking at the 3.25 inch rough country lift. Is this a good lift or should I start maybe with a 2.5 inch lift? Pics of any rough country lifts would be awesome! Mine is bone stock!

Use the search.

I'd recommend just getting a budget boost.

You skipped the first part...

Because you don't need a 3.5" lift (realistically 4" of lift) to run 33's or even 35's.

I would skip the 33's an go right to 35's and find a decent 2.5" lift. What you are going to do with your jeep will dictate what type of lift and what kind you should get.

Being that you have had your jeep for only a month would tell me that a budget boost would be in order for your needs.

Get your clearance from your tires and use your lift to fit the tires.

Again use the search and do some research.
You can read this thread as well to gain some knowledge on lifts.

First off, run from Rough Country. Secondly, buy quality like Metal Cloak, Synergy, or even Rock Krawler and then buy the tires you think you will go to like the 35s.

Or, do everything twice

Nice reference threads. It would be cool if you added our new Pro Series Krawler joints to your evaluation. We think you will be really impressed. Let us know if you would like us to send you one.

You (RK, Justin) were going to send me some to evaluate before they were released but I guess you don't make them in 1.25" shank. I was looking forward to trying them out.

Well I have to go with a 2 inch lift cause I have a factory drive train warranty and the biggest I can go is 2 without voiding it can I fit 33s with a 2 inch? Or can I do leveling kit and fit 33s and maybe wait a little later on lift?

That is correct, our shanks are either 7/8 or 1" for the lowers. That does not mean you cannot still "evaluate" one! LOL.

Really you can fit 33's without any lift. A budget boost seems like it'd be fine for you too.
