Jeep Lift Kits & Suspension

Rough Country Lift Kits

Jeeps were made to be taken off-pavement. Maybe for you that means a nice back road dirt path, or the sand dunes down at the beach or lake. Perhaps it is even a weekend trail ride with friends or the local Jeep club. The standard factory suspension generally will give you a good balance between ride quality and handling, but by changing out things like springs, shocks, stabilizer, or track bars, you can dramatically help the vehicle's off-road performance without affecting ride quality.

If you are looking for a Jeep Wrangler lift kit, there are several ways to accomplish that goal. If you are tired of your vehicle's sagging front end, then a leveling kit can help. These kits provide a simple - yet effective - way to level out your vehicle and provide just a bit of height to accommodate 33- or 34-inch tires on a Jeep Wrangler JK & JL. Should you simply desire to add larger wheels and tires, but do not have plans for off-roading, then a body lift generally works best. This style of lift contains reinforced nylon blocks which help raise body height, without changing the vehicle's suspension system. And then there are full suspension lift kits for those who want to fully enjoy the Jeep off-road experience. Suspension lift kits come in a variety of sizes which not only allow for larger wheels and tires, but also change over many of the vehicle's suspension parts - such as shocks, springs, bump stops, stabilizer, track bars, sway bars, drop pitman arm, and transfer case lowering kit. Of course, different lifts offer different options, but altogether this gives your vehicle the added size, durability, and articulation it needs to conquer the toughest terrain around while still retaining a factory quality ride.

Individual components, instead of inclusive Jeep Wrangler lift kits, are also popular items for Jeep owners as many choose to replace certain components instead of changing over their entire suspension. Parts like coil or leaf springs are great to replace older sagging springs, while shocks can be purchased in a variety of factory or off-road type stiffness ratings to mold your vehicle's ride to fit your needs. Replacement shackles, bump stops, sway and track bars, as well as control arms are all designed stronger than factory to help survive both your on and off-road adventures.

Keep in mind, no lift kit is really complete without a performance tuner to help correct the vehicle's speedometer and gear ratio, while protection items such as skid plates and side nerf bars can be extremely useful as well.
