BDS 2" Lift Installed

We finally got my son's BDS lift installed, it took us all day, the rain didn't help any!

Before = front 32 3/4" (ground to the bottom of the flair)
rear = 34 1/2"

After = front 34 1/4"
rear = 37 1/2"

The ride is much better, it had the original shocks with 130k on them.

x2 on the 31" tires. How is the ride compared to stock? Nice lift by the way!

31x10.5x15 Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ. The ride is great, it now rides like a Jeep. It is a little softer than my JK with a the Skyjacker Hydros.

Did you use only BDS springs and Skyjacker shocks? I can see the pics of the red shock boots on the TJ. Thanks.

so that's new springs and shocks?
I was thinking about a coil spacer and skyjacker hydro shocks.

The JK has spacers and skyjacker shocks, the TJ has new BDS springs and shocks.

Thanks for the reply. Sounds like BDS is a pretty good value for the money. Enjoy your lift!
