OK, so with all the mad money I have I'm thinking about getting a mild lift for the rubi when I get back home. I want something moderate because I dont plan on offroading it too much over the next year, but after that I want to move to colorado and get back into the mountains like I did so many years ago in nevada with my old shitty '92 YJ.
But I digress, I've been looking around and the max I want to go is a 3.5"-4" setup for my 2007 Rubi Unlimited, nothing tailored to offroading because I want to keep some street drivability and safety (1 kid for now, practicing on more when I get home
). I'll also be teaching the wife to drive my stick
so I dont want it to be easier for her to lose control and yes I'll be in the jeep. She can barely even drive her little nissan versa let a lone a car twice that size.
The tires I have are factory with the rubi and the dealership I bought it from (a hyundai dealership of all places) put brand new tires on it so getting my toy wrapped in rubber
isnt really an option for me.
So, what lifts do you guys recommend and what brands/setup should I look into and more importantly avoid (quality craftsmanship issues, crap support, etc etc etc). As far as pricing goes, I dont want to spend more that $1000 on it, I do have to move into a new home when I get back afterall but I have enough saved up to play with the jeep a little. I do have other projects planned but I still have parts left behind that I need to get installed.
Also, I do plan on buying those removable fenderflares in the future so should I scale the lift back to 2.5" - 3"?
And finally, the jeep being a rubicon, what do I need to think about in terms of a lift so I dont effect the swaybar disconnects, or is that even an issue?
Thanks for any advice/info and I'll see y'all back in the clean world in two months.
Also, I forgot to mention that I have 1.5" spacers for the stock wheels.
