More flex?

I'm running 33's with the 2" spacers. What's the best way of getting more flex without going all out an buying a full lift kit? I'm not talking about quick disconnects I've got them on the way. I'm talking about shocks, springs,etc? Any info would be helpful

1.25 inch body lift would be the easier way. Run around $120ish. Swap in v8 ZJ front springs and then you can shorten your bumpstops and get more flex. Or get a set of metal cloak fenders up front or take out the sawzall

Yes better/longer shocks will help

Remember to get a Motor mount lift with the body lift, this will not only make it so you dont have to mod your fan shroud but it also makes it so you can run a 3" suspension lift if you wanted, without a tcase drop

You dont have to get a mml but its recomended so you wont have to mod your fan shroud to fit with a body lift

And the tcase drop is for suspension lifts 2.5+

What I was saying was if you ever decide to go to a 3in suspension lift a mml will prevent you from having to do a tcase drop
