I need it to be semi less expensive. i was thinking maybe a 2" BL to start then later maybe add like a 3" suspension lift? please give me your tips and thoughts, thanks (:
Everytime you call a Jeep a car, a baby bunny dies a slow painful death. It's not a truck, it's not a car, it's a Jeep!
Just bustin' yer chops a little.
I wouldn't do anything over a 1" body lift. Stuff starts misaligning. I ended up getting a 1" BL and a 3" (turns out to be just under 3") budget boost. Got the whole thing for around $400 including the shocks. Enough for some light wheeling and get 33's as well as hold me until I can get a regular lift.
Bad news is, other things keep happening and I can't get the tire money saved up so the lift crap is still packed away.
