Before making the decision to buy a Wrangler JL lift kit, there are a couple of things you should know. Consider the following ideas before deciding if modifying your Jeep is right for you.
One consideration you need to make before buying a Wrangler JL lift kit is how you use your vehicle. This is something that few people actually think about before putting a lift kit on their vehicle. If you have to commute 40 miles to work each day, the lift kit may not be right for you. If you tow a lot of weight, you need to think about which size lift kit would be right. The goal should be to build a Jeep for how it will be used most of the time.
You also need to look at your budget. While you may have the dream of having your Jeep a certain way, you may not realistically be able to afford it. Or it may mean that you need to shop around for lift kits and other items. You may need to build the vehicle slowly. Most people regret putting accessories and other items for their vehicle on a credit card or taking out a loan. It is better to save and be ready to make the purchase.
Think about any hidden costs that may be associated with purchasing a lift kit. For example, you may need to purchase new axle shims, steel braided brake lines, and other parts for the lift kit to be compatible with your Jeep.
