    Good afternoon everyone,
    If you have a moment I would like some opinions please. I just purchased my first Jeep, a 2 door Wrangler Sport. I've been researching lift kits and I'm little overwhelmed by some reviews so I thought I would ask experienced Jeep owners opinions. I've been looking at 2 inch lift kits from Mopar, Tera Flex and Rough Country. There seems to be an even amount of likes and dislikes for each one. Anyone have any of the above lifts that can give their opinion? My Jeep is a daily driver but I like to play in the mud too so I'm not sure which would be best. I won't be doing any Rock crawling. I know I'll be doing 18 inch Fuel Assault wheels with a 33 inch maybe 34 inch tire. Let me know your thoughts! Much appreciated.

    Check out this video by TF. Decent guide to start your decision based off of what you want out of the jeep and your future expectations. Depending on your budget a budget boost or better yet 2.5-3" lift should meet your needs.

    Personally I've run Mopar and Teraflex and like them. I removed a TON of rough country stuff off friend's Jeeps and I'm no fan. Mainly saggy springs but the hardware (other than control arms) isn't as nice as the other brands you mentioned.

    That said, for 33s I wouldn't lift it. The purpose of a lift is to allow room to run bigger tires, and 33s will fit without a lift. If anything for 33"/34" just add a level kit and flat fenders if you want more room to flex.

    Also for a 33 I would not run an 18" wheel, I'd run a 17". 18" won't give much sidewall when airing down for the mud or trails.

    But in the long run it's your Jeep, gotta build it for you and how you want it.

    talk to your friendly jeep dealer, they have factory engineered lift kits, high quality and will not cause issues with warranty or replacement parts.
