Body lift or spring spacers

What is better a body lift or the spacer that go in the springs? Very new to owning a jeep and tried a search. So any help would be great.

I believe both have their pro's.

If you have plans to evenutally do a spring lift, then a 1"-1.25" body lift would be a good way to start. You will also be able to "tummy tuck" if you desire. (don't go above a 1.25" body lift or things get complicated)

If you plan to just go 2" and be done, get a Budget Boost (spacers).

If you go BL don't go over 1.25. then just save up for a SL and your all set. If you are interested in using a BB Lift.. Make sure you get it with new shocks.. especially if you want to disconnect... IMO having shock travel is good news

Im only going 2" cause its the only vehicle the dogs fit in and the wife said she didnt want to use a 6' step ladder to get in.Do you need to do anything for the steering? Also don't know what you mean by disconnect. I'm really new to this. Thanks

Based on that, I would just get a 2" Budget boost. you can use your current shocks and swaybar links.
