Jeep Body Lift

I have a 90 yj with 33x12.50 BFG AT.It has shackles on it and I am having no real issues with them rubbing.I am considering a body lift just for appearance.I do not off road..On Road only..Will this be ok to do?Any concerns? I am new to the JEEP world.

You'll be fine. I'd just keep the height of the body lift at around 1 inch. The taller the body lift, the more stress you put on the tub. Does the Jeep have a suspension lift too or just shackles?

I ran mine with a 3" body lift and 33's until I got the money for the suspension i have now. I like the body lift for several reasons, although a lot of folks say they look funny and are a bad idea.
Make sure that your Jeep isn't all rusted to death, especially the body mounts. If it is I would not recommend a body lift at all.
Below is mine with a 3" body lift and 33's on stock springs and 1" shackles. I will not od the shackles again, that is what I think makes a Jeep look funny, not to mention the bump steer you get.

daviecoker,

You'd be fine with adding a body lift. I wouldn't go with a crazy high body lift or anything. A 1 to 2 body lift would work great for your rigs set up. We do have them in stock with free shipping on orders over $75. Don't forget about our exclusive WF member discount. Let me know if you have any questions. I'd be happy to help.

No it only has the shackles. Thanks for the info..Now just got to decide...Rust is not an issue.Everything appears to be in top shape for its age.
