Best Jeep Wrangler Lift - YJ, TJ, JK, JL

Looking for the best Wrangler lift?

This guide will help you choose the best Wrangler lift for your needs.

Alright, so a blanket statement like "best Wrangler lift" shouldn't exist because "best" is a matter of what is best for your situation and your specific needs.  The "best" lift is going to be different for every Wrangler owner because every Wrangler owner is working with a different budget, placing different demands on their Jeep, modifying for different styles of off-roading, and staying within the context of their Wrangler's ultimate build goals (Do you want the most comfortable daily driver or the most hardcore rock crawler or maybe somewhere inbetween?).

So ExtremeTerrain has put together this incredibley informative guide on everything you should know before making a lift decision with your Wrangler.  The article covers everything to consider, and I mean everything - suspension geometry, supporting mods, parts breakdowns, and even the differences between Wrangler generations and their specific suspension design considerations.  Fortunately, XT was also kind enough to include videos to go along with this article so that you don't need to read through the whole thing if you prefer to watch and learn.  So before you buy a lift for your Wrangler, take some time and learn about all the factors that go into choosing the "best lift" for your Wrangler; this article will give you the information to make an informed decision that you won't regret.

Once you have done your Wrangler lift homework don't forget to check out the Where2Wheel offroad trails map to help you find where to go offroading!
