I have an '89 YJ, basically stock except for a few chrome goodies that the previous owner installed. I've since put American Racing Rims and new tires but have decided it needs a couple inches of lift just to make it look better. I don't 4 Wheel hard with it since it's the little 2.5L 4 cyl and is underpowered for it, but it serves the purpose for a "Run around town convertible" that my kids and I get a kick out of. I don't want to put a lot of money into a suspension lift kit but would like it raised up a bit for a better look. I understand the body lifts create the need to change some suspension parts as well and once again, we're talking about spending more than I can or want to. Please give me the down side to shackle lifts and if there's a better way without spending lots of coin on a 20 year old "Toy".
