cool sounds awesome, that would keep me from getting a T-case? which IMO look terrible.

as for my want of the 2":

1. I get off the pavement, but I don't run hard trails with large obstacles, its like two trac dirt trails on friends land, with some mudding here and there. so i do want my 33" to clear any amount of flex that they want. P.S.- i don't have to worry about hard recovery's or lots of stress on the spacers. (i know the 1.25" will do but still )
2. my jeep is mostly on pavement, 50MPH and under, i never get on the highway, and if i do its for maybe 5 minutes.
3. I really want 4" of lift and can't afford anything else, to be straight honest, its the small man syndrome in me, i gotta make this thing bigger than any other jeep i know. lol

I also had a 2" BL and 2" BB and there was no probloem on the "Autobahn" with speeds up to 100 mph.

nice! thanks for your advice, i recently got on my local highway, and couldn't get my jeep to 85MPH

(i know, i know don't speed)

but i was trying to convince my father my jeep ***had*** to have new gears lol

hmmm 4.56's would be pretty awesome.

with my 4.0L 2" BB and 33" AT tires... i have to floor it for awhile just to get to 70, then its a REALLY REALLY slow hard climb to 85, and that's all she wrote, wouldn't go faster.

i told him with the 33"s the jeep wouldn't do 75 MPH. but it did eventually so i lost. ( he agree'd he would pay for new gears if i couldn't do it.)

but the last time i got on the highway, i had to change lanes so everyone could past me because i couldn't hold 70MPH on the hills. kinda mad me sad, but its whatever, i only get on the highway like once in a blue moon.

Do 1" body lifts require modifications to install(tc drop, new driveshaft, sye, etc.)?

I couldn't possibly image driving my jeep 100 mph.My brother in law lived in Heidleberg(spelling?)and he has a ss impala that he had shipped from the states and had the pleasure of cruising it on the autobahn.He's in Afganistan now,his wife and the car are back home,she says driving it now is like driving backwards! Don't mean to hijack.

hey jeep 95, i'm sorta novice on this area but to my knowledge, every jeep is different. and depending on how high you go for a BL is gonna determine whether you need to make some adjustments. a new driveshaft and SYE are not gonna be needed if you're doing something like 1.25 or 1" of lift. you can keep your driveshaft even if you go higher than 1.25" just get a MML or drop the TC more. however, you may need to do the tc drop if you get driveline vibes. look it up online i thought i had the link on my favs, but i cant find it. there's an article that goes throguh the basics. you might even find the link in a thread in here. GL!

Stay with a 1 or 1.25 BL . . . will be plenty along with your 2" BB to clear the 33's and with a 4" suspension lift would be plenty to clear the 35's if you decide to go that route in the future (be ready to really open up the check book on that one though as your talking, a whole new suspension, SYE, DS, beefing up the axles, new gears, etc, etc, etc) There's just no good reason to go over 1.25 on a BL.

daanbc - I'm trying to understand why you decided to install a 2" BL to clear the 31's vs a 2" BB instead? Seems like both would be in the same ball park when you look at cost, but when you consider things like performance, safety, looks, etc the BB is far superior.
