BB plus 1 inch body pics?

Hey, does anyone have pics where they did the 2 inch BB plus 1 inch body lift? I'm thinking about it and just wanted to see some results from you all and any feedback.

Thanks!

2" BB + 1.25" BL. I ran this for 9 months before swapping out the front BB with ZJ springs and then went with 3" springs all around 6 months later. I wish I had just went with the springs the first time around, but the BB allowed me to get on the trails quicker when funds were low.

2" BB, 1.25" BL, 30" tires





Same setup with 33"








I wouldn't recommend 33s with that setup. You'll need to bumpstop correctly and have zero travel with that large of a tire. On the road it is a perfectly fine setup, but you won't be able to disconnect the swaybar offroad and expect any travel.

2" BB with 1.25" body lift 1" motor lift with 33x10.5 BFG KM2.

I'm lookin at getting 2-3" springs to replace the 12 year old saggy stock springs.

Looks great- I notice you all run 33's with the lifts- I currently have new 31's so I'm wondering if they would look a bit strange. I don't want to move to 33's yet until I can do something about the lack of power (2.4L now).

Who knows... I will probably do it anyways just to get the little bit of height. I just added a new winch and it sure did bring the front down a good 1.5 inches or so.

This was the other night. Sorry for the crap quality- I will try to get a better shot that might show the front dip...and the newly painted fenders!
