Advise on Lift & Suspension system

Getting ready for the next step & need help/advise! I have a 4 DR- 09 JK Sahara.
Right now I want to lift my jeep 2.50" or 3" at max, for tires I'm considering the 35x12.50R17- BF Goodwrich Mud Terrain T/A KM2 or the Goodyear Wrangler MT/R tire w/ Kevlar (same size). Any advise?

The following are the lift options Iím considering and for all options Iím including the front & rear trackbar.
Anything else that I need to consider?
Any good or bad experience with any of the systems?
Any advice on the shocks?


Warrior Products 3" Lift Kit with Shocks

TreaFlex would be my first pick of the list. Then I would go with Warrior Products. I wont comment on the other lifts you have listed as we dont sell them. I will let others do that. There is some other great lifts out there as well. You are looking in a good height though for your 35's.

What kind of wheeling do you do? What shocks are you looking to run?

ORW has a great deal for forum members on the Teraflex 2.5" coil lift with Bilstein 5100's included. I placed my order, just waiting for it to come in. I also got a good deal on the Teraflex front and rear Monster trackbars.

I have researched many different lifts and have basically come to the conclusion that people are not happy with Skyjacker.

X2 but if you don't have your heart set I would start looking at others.

Thanks for the advice.
For the shocks I was planning to go with what the suspension system come with it. At the same time I research a couple of good "gas" shocks, from the ES900 from Pro Comp, Skyjacker Nitro 8000, Teraflex 9500...

My husband and his friends all have had Skyjacker on their Jeeps with no problems. So, we purchased a 4" Value Flex System for my Unlimited (not installed yet) It came with springs, shocks, relocation brackets, bump stops, lower adjustable arms and a few more little things for under $1,000. I understand people are gonna say TeraFlex is better than Skyjacker but let me save you guys the trouble of flaming me. I got a bigger, more complete lift for less money and the fact that my JK will only go off road once a week at most, it is more than adequate. Not that those other kits aren't good, I am just commenting on what I know about Skyjacker. Good luck with your search

No problem! Feel free to PM me or email me and we can go over more options...

For shocks, I think if you get then separate, you might spend a little more but your gonna get a lot more out of it! Then you can get the shocks that work for nit just the kit but for you. It also won't limit your options.
