1. Superlift Suspension K175 2.5″ Front 1.5″ Rear Leveling Lift Kit with Shock Brackets (ASIN – B00GP6T05E)

Compatibility: Jeep Wrangler JLU (late 2018-present)

First, we want to tell you about this coil spring lift kit from manufacturer Superlift. It fits on the newest generation of Wrangler Unlimited models, and will raise up your vehicle by 2.5 inches in the front and 1.5 in the rear. This is to level out the suspension of your vehicle, giving it a more aggressive stance. Superlift is a very reliable seller, and you can always count on their products to be made using high-quality materials. The process of installing a kit like this can be quite difficult, so we only recommend attempting it if you’re confident in your abilities working on the Wrangler. Whether you install yourself or get professional assistance, the end result will be an awesome new look and feel for your four-door Wrangler.

2. TeraFlex 3″ Lift Kit with 9550 VSS Shocks (ASIN – B006D9W9F6)

Compatibility: Jeep Wrangler JKU (2007-early 2018)

Next up, we’re recommending this lift kit from TeraFlex. It’s a more in-depth option and costs more, but it delivers excellent performance that you won’t regret. With it, you’ll be able to install tires that are up to 35-inches in diameter. The manufacturer recommends driveshaft modifications in order for this to work correctly, which is yet another reason to seek a professional mechanic for installation. They’ll be able to install everything at the same time, and make sure it’s all working properly. If you’ve got the room in your budget and this is the right fit, there’s no doubt this could be the best lift kit for Jeep Wrangler Unlimited models.

3. Rough Country 2.5″ Series II Suspension System (ASIN – B0777YVQWL)

Compatibility: Jeep Wrangler JKU (2007-early 2018)

Here we’ve got another lift kit made for the last generation of Wrangler models. It comes from Rough Country, who is one of our preferred manufacturers of lift kits and other accessories. The product comes with a lifetime replacement warranty, but you shouldn’t count on needing it. This system will raise the height of your Wrangler by 2.5 inches, providing plenty of room to install a new set of wheels and tires. The quality of the parts is always top-notch, and though the installation process is a bit difficult, the end result will be well worth the effort. Remember to consider professional installation if you’re not sure in your ability to install at home!

4. Rough Country 2.5″ Lift Kit 67700 (ASIN – B07B1H7QJV)

Compatibility: Jeep Wrangler JLU (late 2018-present)

Do you like the look of that last kit, but found that it wasn’t a good fit for your Wrangler? Check out this other kit from Rough Country that offers the same height but for the newest generation of Wrangler. You’ll find all the hardware you need here to raise up your vehicle by 2.5 inches, and once again you’ll have that lifetime warranty backing you up. Feel free to pick this kit up for your Wrangler, but just remember that the installation can be something of a doozy!

5. MotoFab Lifts 3″ Lift Kit with Shock Extenders (ASIN – B07KN97ZMC)

Compatibility: Jeep Wrangler JKU (2007-early 2018)

If you’re looking for a budget option, this may be the best lift kit for Jeep Wrangler Unlimited models. It’s a simple set of spacers for the front and rear which will lift the vehicle up by three inches. Spacer kits are different than many other types of kits as they’ll simply raise up the vehicle’s body without altering suspension. While they’re cheaper and usually easier to install, they don’t offer quite the same performance as some of their counterparts. However, they do a fine job all the same, especially considering the difference in price.

It’s built for the Wrangler Unlimited, and offers excellent performance once you’ve got everything installed properly. As always, make sure to pay close attention to the details to ensure this fits on your vehicle, and determine the right installation process for your skill level (installing at home or opting for professional assistance). As long as everything checks out, this kit will serve your vehicle well.
