Cheap 3.5 Lift Kit Rugged Ridge Wrangler JK

  • Rugged Ridge Adjustable 2.5'' - 3.5'' Lift Kit
  • Product Review
  • It's not a "basic" lift kit because it comes with specs and some quality parts that normally belong to luxury lift kit manufacturers like Teraflex, Rough Country, Skyjacker or AEV.
  • First of all, it's 4x powder coated for best corrosion resistant (and water fording). Second, it has a rear track bar brace that adds more strength to the factory track bar mount (an amazing idea for a lift sold for less than $1000). Third, the shock absorbers are nitrogen-charged and give you a smoother ride in the bush for sure. You don't have valves to adjust since if comes with self-adjusting ones. Fourth, the springs are made with a memory metal (called ductile iron). That adds strength and elevates the breaking point to a very high ratio. Perfect for rock crawling. Fifth, it's a direct-fit installation. No drilling, no add-ons, no customization. Will work with any stock Wrangler JK. Sixth, you won't have to upgrade your axles. You only need to perform a complete "professional" alignment afterward at your local auto repair shop. Seventh, it has a 5 year warranty on all parts.

The manufacturer's manual recommends some reinforcement welds (particularly for the rear track bar mount). It's not 100% necessary but if a buddy of yours can perform such a weld, I would recommend you to do it right off the bat (I mean before a long distance expedition or moving for work to a remote location).

The 2.5'' lift kit will accomodate 33" tires (in rough trail conditions).

The 3.5'' lift kit will accomodate 35" tires (in rough trail conditions).
