    Hi guys,

    My son just bought a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4x4 6 cyl. He wants put a set of 31-10.50-15 mud terrain tires on it with steel wheels. He wants it to look good and Not just barely fit the tires. More of a hunting offroad vehicle. Not a rock climber. Driving it to school as well. I was told a rough country lift or a rubicon express lift. What ideas or recommendations might you all have for us. Lift, shocks, tires. Thanks.

    Welcome! Rough Country is a well known brand, although I don't have much experience with it. Is there a budget involved?

    I was looking at the Rough Country lift and the Rubicon Express. I also want new shocks. A 3.5" lift to accommodate 31" mud terrain tires. Budget around $600-$1200

    Out of those 2, Rubicon all of the way. I have heard a lot of complaints about rough country ride quality and trail reliability. I hear a lot about the good deals people get on rough country lifts. It has been my experience that in life you get what you pay for, and in lift kits I believe that to be especially true.

    Thank you for your advice. Makes sense. I will order me the Rubicon lift with shocks next week.
