Re: 2001 sport lift kit

The different between the two are,the $ 899 kit has swaybars disconnect,brake lines, pitman arm,and a front track bar.I don`t no how it rides.If your not going offroad.You might be able to get away with the other kit or a 4" super lift kit.You also might have add a body lift to fit 14.5 tires.33s by 12.5 should fit with a 4" lift and after market wheels,stock offset won`t work.Remember if you go with a lift 3.5" or higher on a TJ you might need a SYE or you might have driveshaft vibration.

Re: 2001 sport lift kit

why spend all the money, and it never leave pavement? get a body lift, or spring spacer lift if that's the case

Re: 2001 sport lift kit

What about a 1" body lift and then some 2" coil spacers that should give you the clearance you need for real cheep and keep your stock ride quality. If you arn't wheeling it then control arms and sway bar disconects arn't going to do much for you. Have you tried wheeling? you might want to give it a shot you will have a sweet jeep that will be pretty deascent off road.
