    TJ help - 4" lift reccomendations

    A friend of mine wanted me to ask around and look at reviews for a 4" suspension lift. Looking for one that won't break the bank but will hold up and give a comfortable ride.

    I had a 2" budget boost (might even have been 2.25"), 1" body lift, 1" motor mount lift on my 2006 TJ Rubicon. Skidded up with 33's and it did just fine off road. I removed the fender flares to keep the wide 13.50 Nito's out of them when we'd wheel be rock crawling. I'd recommend quality shocks, I ran some I got for cheap, (rubicon express maybe?) and it made the ride very stiff compared to stock. I'll dig up a bunch of old pics, it'll be fun, but I know the links will break eventually because they're from facebook...















    With 15x8 and 33x12.50 BFG MT's they'd tuck in the fenders well enough that I wouldn't remove the flares.

    On my buddies 06 TJ Rubicon, we ran a shorter lift, believe it was 3" from Rough Country. The lift was complete with adjustable control arms upper and lower at a minimum, think it included new track bars as well. After adding skids/bumpers/winch the springs sagged quite a bit so we installed ACOS for about an extra 1.5" on top of the soft springs. It was a nice soft squishy ride though. Added Rokmen highline fender kit installed at Dirty's Garage. Then we put my 37's on it for a wheeling trip in the desert. Here's pictures of it on 37's.

    Okay now it's time to start looking for axles.

    He's found a d60 rear with disc brakes. I see a lot of people use the 14 bolt Chevy instead. What are the advantages and disadvantages of each?

    The dana 60 rear is ok but not alot stronger than a dana 44 rear. The 14 bolt is cheap easy to find easy to set the gears up and all around just a better axle. Spare shafts for a 14 bolt (youll never need them) can also be found in any junkyard because GM has used that axle for so long with very few variations.
