the vibe on this forum is body lifts arnt good, dont buy em, and get a bigger suspension lift. but heres my situation.
i have a 06 tj with 33 inch tires and a 2 inch lift. fits fine and looks well, BUT i have no room to flex. body lare are pretty cheap compared to lifts and id feel like a sucker if i put a 4 inch suspension lift on it. so a body lift seems to fit my problems, cheap and plently of flex room.
whats not good about body lifts? im thinking about a 1 or 2 inch, so i can flex >
or else im just going to get a suspension lift in a year or 2 and not do any major 4wheelin, which is no fun
why would you feel like a sucker for buying a suspension lift?
Body lifts more than 1 or 1.5 inch look goofy. They put more leverage against the body mount/bolt. Just my opinion.
He who knows not and knows not that he knows not, he is a fool, shun him.
He who knows not and knows he knows not, he is simple, teach him.
He who knows and knows not he knows, he is asleep, wake him.
But he who knows, and knows he knows, he is wise, follow him.

Also don't forget to plan ahead when you do a body lift if you plan on putting any armor on your Jeep in the future. Some skid plates require them (one inch) and some won't work with them.
sounds like a pian, but rather be flexing now then in a year or 2 i reckon
i am planning on putting a 3 piece skid plate combo when i get my tax return, oil pan, steering box, and fual tank, hopefully the standerd warn skid plates will fit.
if you install a 1" or 1.25" BL together with a 1" MML you donīt need to install the fan shrould lowering brackets.
what kind of 2" lift does your jeep have? if it has loner 2" springs you could put some cheap 1" spacers on top of the springs for a bit more lift.
