Don’t Trade Your Jeep in Just Raise it Up

So you have been toiling around in your Jeep Wrangler TJ for the last few years and have had some fun getting out into the off-road world, but are a little sad when your friends can get a little dirtier than you can because they have a higher clearance under their Wranglers. You thought about getting rid of your Jeep and buying a new one that is already raised up by a lift kit, but you love your Jeep. There is that special bound between you and your TJ. It is understandable, after all, they are the best 4×4 vehicle made and sold in the world.

But instead of trading the thing in and having to start a whole new relationship with a strange Wrangler why not go to and check out the 2″ Suspension Lift Kit for 97-06 Wrangler TJ by Rough Country. When you add one of these kits to your Jeep you also get to spend a few hours of quality time with your baby all alone in your garage. Or if you need a little help there is bound to be a local Jeep club where a fellow-member will be more than willing to offer a friendly hand as you boost your baby up.

You will be amazed at how easy it is to do something like this when you follow the easy to understand instructions what come with the kit. After you get it all done you will be able to spend more time out in the woods jumping through mudded areas that you never dreamt of getting through with your stock level Jeep.

You will also get to spend some time shopping for new wheels and tires because by raising the suspension by just a couple of inches with the 2″ Suspension Lift Kit for 97-06 Wrangler TJ by Rough Country it will allow you to get bigger wheels and tires. It is suggested that you make sure you buy tires that fit your wheels, especially if you the off-road a lot. Tires too big for wheels can come off and leave you stranded in the middle of nowhere.

  1. After a Father’s Day weekend of camping and off road fun, I’m sold on the idea of the lift kit. I couldn’t believe what a difference a few inches can make. My brother in law installed a lift kit over the winter and there was no stopping him. I want that too. Since my wife didn’t buy me a gift yet, you can bet your bottom dollar that’s what I’m asking for. She loves it as much as I do so I know it will be ok with her. I’ll have this done by the fourth of July and I won’t be sitting back watching the others have fun, I’ll be right in the thick of it.


  2. Amen to that! I’ve spent a lot of time and money getting my Jeep to the point it is right now. I can’t think of any reason that would make me trade it in for a newer model. A lift kit was one of the first improvements I made and was probably the most practical. Installing it was a piece of cake so don’t be afraid to give it your best shot.


  3. Anyone who would consider trading their Jeep in instead of raising the bar on the one they have should not be driving a Jeep! No way, no how. That’s half the fun of being a Jeep owner. Fix it up and show it off.


  4. Getting down and dirty and/or wet is what owning a Jeep is all about. The lift was the first thing I did when the dealer handed over the keys. It’s hard to say whether me of the Jeep was dirtier at the end of that day! I’ve made several modifications since then, but none I consider more important.


  5. As I was driving near the Illinois/Indiana border today I saw a Jeep that was so high, it looked downright silly. If I hadn’t been late for a seminar I would have motioned them over and asked them what they were thinking when they did that. Too much of a good thing is NOT a good thing. It really bordered on ridiculous. I wish I had thought to pack my camera, you really had to see it to believe it.
