Just put on a 2" body lift. Help!

I just put another 2" on my TJ with a body lift I put on myself. I also just found out that they don't make a bumper lift to raise them with the lift. Why? And does anyone know where I can find one. Surely someone's made one. Thanks!

I've never heard of a bumper lift, I would think it would be dangerous taking it up off the frame.

Because the person who invented the body lift wasn't smart enough to make a bumper lift.

It's just something you'll have to live with. One of the downsides to a body lift.

The bumper needs to be tied into the frame, I don't think it has anything to do with smarts. If it were up off the frame it would be useless.

^ ya x2. the bumper is there for protection not for looks. if you lifted the bumper it could become a dangerous projectile in an accident.

Well I was just thinkin maybe there were some brackets that just raise the bumpers but that are still attached to the frame. I realize that it should remain to the frame. It would defeat the purpose of having a bumper if it wasn't. If anyone knows of anyone that makes them i'd love to know. It just looks kinda weird.

you can flip the rear stock bumper to cover up that 2" gap perfectly. Also you can flip the step frames which again covers up that 2" gap perfectly. No info on the front though. I have an aftermarket bumper which seems to be alright.

Flipping the step frames.

Would you look at that, my jeep has the same size gaps as stock.
