Best Lift for 31x10.50

I know I do not need a lift to run 31x 10.50s but I would like more flexibility and ground clearance. What is the highest I could go and not look too silly? 4"?

What brands would you recommend. I do not like the look of body lifts. Please show pictures of your rigs with 31x10.50s with lifts.

A 2" lift is pretty common for 31's as most lifts more than 2" make the 31's look dinky. Plus you can then stay with your stock shocks and stock swaybar links, keeping the cost down.

Many will go with a 2" Spacer lift (aka Budget Boost "BB") for about $100. A better option would be to installl 2" BDS springs which is very popular choice.

When I had 31x10.5's with a 2" BB, this is what it looked like.

Is there any advantages to a BB versus getting coils and new shocks on a 2" lift? Is there really that much difference in ground clearance with a 2" lift?

1.25" bodylift and slim down your midsection with a tummy tucker. IMO a 1.25" body lift isn't outright noticeable. I'd also get an engine skid and a gas tank skid if your Jeep is a TJ. Savvy makes a gas tank skid that will give your tank an additional 1" in clearance.

Quick Disconnects also recommended.

The 2" BB will retain most of the ride you have now. Going to 2" Springs and shocks, your ride could be better or worse depending on the kit. For instance some say a 2" Procomp kit is horribly stiff. So the nice thing about the 2"BB is in you exactly how its going to ride..."as is" with the extra clearance.

The 2" will give you more clearance at the approach, depart and break over points....but your axle clearances will still be limited to the 31" tires.
