    Hey guys new to the community.
    Just was hoping some one can give me some info on 2.5 in vs 4 in lift kit.
    I want my jeep for city weekend driving. Want it to look for aggressive but I don't know if 2.5 is not high enough. 4 in seems too high. If anyone was a cj7 2.5 in lift if yall can send pic or recommendations. Ima pro ride on 31 or 33 on a 15 in rim

    20yrs ago my old man had an 85 CJ7 that we put a 2.5" lift on and 33" tires. It looked great and had no or minimal tire to fender flare contact. It wasn't set up to get the axles all twisted up but it had no problem doing some trails in SW Colorado namely Black Bear Pass.

    I have a CJ 7 with 2.5" lift and 31" tires. Nice look w/o looking too jacked up.
