Coil spacers are probably the easiest to install and most reliable lift(right next to BL) as there are no moving parts to worry about.

Spacers are a good place to start to see if you want to go farther. I've wheeled the heck out of my BB for a long time and have never had one bit of problem with it other than some vibes which were simple to fix.

When I first got my Jeep I put 2" spacers and 31" tires on it. It was a very cheep modification and if you're just running fire trails and the street it will fit your purposes fine, with no complications. However, like most of us you will probably find yourself desiring more and more capability. A quality lift can make your Jeep an unstoppable off-road monster.

You'd be fine with spacers in it. It'll take some light adjustments to overcome what Flattie and Tiny were speaking of, but nothing impossible in your garage.

Hell I'm even running a 3/4" spacer in the rear as an upper spring cup and 1 1/2" spacer up front to even everything out.

4 Wheel Customs - TJ/LJ/Rubicon 2.25" Complete Budget Boost Kits

i went with these because they are a true 2.25'' lift

most 2'' bb only give you 1.75''... and i figure if i can get .25'' to .50'' more then why not.

i have them sitting in my kitchen waiting to be installed. my instance will be the ultimate place for these newbs to be directed to, im going to take alot of pics, im not replacing the shocks right now- so it will be worst case scenario with my old busted as$ shocks, and i will update the thread frequently with info on ride quality, any sqeaks, etc.

i think the big factor in most ppl looking for a bb is cash. i mean if it was 80 bucks for a 6 inch lift i would be all over it.
