My name is Amy, I just bought my first Jeep. I have a 2009 Commander Sport 4x4. I would like advice on which lift and tires to have installed. I look forward to learning from you all!

It really depends on what look you're going for... I used the 2 inch rough country lift which allowed 265 70 17s to fit fine with just a hint of rub at full turn. I also didn't have to use different shocks/struts... the originals worked with the lift no problem. I love the look and the project was rather inexpensive.

You can do run that set-up - I did for a few years before upgrading to the 4 inch superlift, but one thing I did - which I would recommend to anybody going this route would be replacing the stock rear shocks and front struts/shock absorbers.

You have to figure for most of us, your stock suspension is going to have around 100,000 miles on it or more - unless you picked up an XK with very low mileage. Even so, if it still has the original factory components, it's also going to be anywhere from 8 to 12 years old depending on the model year.

How long do you expect the original factory shocks/struts to last - and still be functioning up to snuff??
