Best budget lift

I would like to know what people thought was the best budget lift out there for the Commander. I only want to lift mine two or three inches, keeping the stock rims and putting on taller tires. Ease of installation would be a plus. I'm sure this has been covered already in here but would like it all in one place. Posts that contain details such as the price, brand and the tire size would be greatly appreciated.

the big question is how much do you want to spend?

I havent lifted mine yet but will be soon. Basically with any 2" lift you are adding coil spacers to the rear. Then either you add a strut mount spacer or a coil spacer that sits on the spring. OME sells longer struts and springs all around, but I wouldnt call that budget for a 2". From my experience with other jeeps a spacer is a spacer. Mostly they are just different colors. I have never lifted an IFS jeep though so mabye the struts spacers differ in design. Basically what I am trying to say is a 2" spacer lift is pretty much the same from everybody. Find the best price and go

There is a lift poll that should help you out. I think there are more Rocky Road lifts than any other but some others are catching up due to some problems some members have had with the Rockey Road. I have the RR and still recommend it however.

You cant go wrong with the BDS spacer lift. There is nothing to break. Both front and rear spacers are made out of steel.

Rough Country spacer lift is what I am running. The RC lift is also completely steel and is well made with flawless welds. I've been running it for a year problem free. I also have 1.5" Spidertraxx wheel spacers, and am running Goodyear Wrangler DuraTracs 265/70/17's. All in all a very sweet combo.

I'll second the quality on RC's 2" spacer lift- well built, easy install, and nice ride. The spacers are black too, so they blend in with the stock suspension. I've also got 1.5" spacers and 275/60/17 Hankook Ventus RH06 tires.

Honestly it really doesnt matter which one you go with as long as both front and rear spacers are made out of metal. Id just stay away from the kits that have poly spacers.
