3 inch body lift

I have a 97 jeep wrangler on 35s i have a 4inch lift and a 1 inch body on it. I was wanting a little bigger of a lift, and dont want to pay a fortune. Would a 3inch body lift be what i need? Thanks

You will find that most people will frown on body lifts over about 1.25". They create numerous problems and do not look appealing.

I believe they can cause linkage issues, so you will have to address that. They will also raise your center of gravity which isnt a good thing. As far as looks go, most people do not like to see the large gap between the body and the frame. Look at the pic I posted with the gap between the body and the rear bumper. But to each is their own...
