Best Low cost 2.5 lift kit

2014 4DR JK, looking for a low cost coil kit 2.5", it is my wife's DD, and not much off road, just to make it look different than stock. the price range is about 300 - 400 bucks, what would be the best bang for the buck\\


thanks

I know you said $300-400, but personally I would put that money in the bank and save up for the AEV 2.5" lift. It's about $1075 shipped from AEV or if you can wait you can get it for around $1000 shipped from AEV. I know that is 2.5X your max budget of $400, but I am more concerned with quality and drivability than look and cost savings. I have no experience with RC or any of the other kits, but I can tell you that my AEV 2.5" lift feels pretty much like my stock suspension did except I'm now sitting 2.5" higher. Ultimately it's up to you, but I think the increased initial investment is well worth it now and down the road.

Just my .02

Teraflex budget boost or leveling kit. My brother in law has had the budget boost on for about 5 yrs and no issues. I had the leveling kit before I upgraded and it was fine.

You can buy coils, shocks and some form of caster correction. Buy quality components so you can upgrade as need be down the road and do so on a good budget...

I'm happy with my synergy springs and rs9000 setup... 2in front springs and 1 inch rear..netted a bit higher w/out the weight of bumpers and a winch...
I was going between synergy,RK and metal cloak, can't go wrong with any of the 3 and my long term Frankenstein suspension will likely have all of the represented
