I am getting ready to lift the jeep, it's a 97 TJ 4.0 Sahara automatic, what I want is a
2" Teraflex budget boost coil spacers w/ bumps top extensions
1.25" JKS body lift
1" motor mount lift (spacer blocks)
I am currently running a 31x10.50R15 GoodYear Duratrac Tire.
I don't plan on ever running anything bigger. But I still have 1 question.
What kind of shocks should I replace mine with for this budget boost? I'm not looking for anything fancy, just something that will make it ride like it does with the factory shocks, no better no worse.
Here is a pic of my jeep and how it is setup currently
Sounds like a plan. Why the BL if only running 31's ? How much money you want to spend on shocks ?The Rancho 9000's are adjustable and very popular with both TJ and JK drivers. I'm not sure when but Rancho is good for a rebate usually twice a year.
I just want the BL for extra height..
I don't want to spend much more that I would if I were purchasing factory shocks, assuming that would be possible when buying ones that are 2" longer than stock. Make sense?
Are you doing this for looks or you plan on off roading--and need the travel? You might be ok with the stocks on road, I'll be honest, been awhile since I owed my TJ actually, another option if your factory shocks are in good shape. Shock extensions. Some kits come with them.
90% of my driving is on the pavement, so a lot of it is looks. But i do also like to off road and i tend to push my stock suspension to its limits..
