    I'm totally new to this jeep thing. So I'm wondering if I put a 3" lift on my 2003 Wrangler will I have to spend more $ on the suspension at first? Also I'm thinking about buying some 2014 Sahara rims and tires for it from a friend. I know I will have to get wheel adapters but should I have any others concerns? Thanks, kdh397

    You might end up getting death wobble or vibrations and end up spending some money fixing that. I'd skip the wheels and tires from the Sahara but that's just personal opinion.

    Depends on the lift. Lessor expensive lifts leave parts out to cut costs. If you have an idea of what lift you are looking at, that might help us give better info.

    I'm not sure what kit I'm getting yet. But it will be one with shocks and springs. Thanks for your help

    There are a bunch of good options out there. 2.5" lift kits in our experience seem to be less intrusive vs 3"-3.5" and up. By less intrusive we just mean less things require to change out for it to work. Not sure if this helps at all o_O
