    Sure! Probably will ride okay. But it will look very odd ;)

    I really like OME lifts especially for the leaf sprung vehicles. I'm partial to Teraflex though for coil sprung and I would strongly consider their 4 in lift kit. I believe it is the best quality on the market and it comes with an adjustable trackbar. It is also $100 cheaper straight from the manufacturer. Another one to consider is BDS. I have read lots of good things about them, but I've never known anyone running their product. They do have a lifetime no questions asked warranty on their lifts for as long as you own the vehicle. BDS cost $100 more, but it also comes with new longer control arms to help straighten out the geometry. The downside is that rather than use their track bar bracket I would order an adjustable trackbar instead (another $200-300). Whichever system you go with I would strongly suggest that you upgrade to longer adjustable control arms if not initially whenever you can (already included in the BDS kit). This will greatly improve your axle geometry and give you a better ride. I say all of this to give you options, but all three lifts in this thread are great choices.

    Strongly agree with OFFGRID.
    Thanks Peter. You saved me a lot of time posting what I have recently learned from you and other members here such as Chris4x4.

    You can't just throw a lift in and run your Jeep like nothing happened to it. It's always a work in progress. But this is why we own a Jeep. We love it. It's a Jeep thing.
